If you think the media does not care about domestic violence and won't cover the issue unless it's a sensational story - I have something wonderful to share with you.
KNWA (Northwest Arkansas) has been doing a weekly series every Wednesday called "Hope For Peace."
The series started October 7 and the series continues through the end of November. You can view all the archived stories at http://nwahomepage.com/content/hope.
And these are not little one minute stories - these are long 4-5 minute segments devoted to the issue.
This week the issue was domestic violence and the impact on the workplace. Previous segments have included Arkansas Governor Beebe discussing his own family's heartbreak over domestic violence.
I give BIG kudos to the management at KNWA and to anchor Neile Jones for getting the stories and the information out. And for taking the time to really delve into the issue in this way.
We all "hope for peace" -- and KNWA is truly trying to do something about it. Again, that link is http://nwahomepage.com/content/hope.
