The Other Side of the Coin

I write some variation on this post every Super Bowl Monday. First, I hope you all enjoyed your Super Bowl experience: friends, food, beer, and the enjoyment of a really good football game. We certainly enjoyed our time. Of course it may have helped that we didn’t really care who won, having friends on both sides of the game but no particular allegiance ourselves.

However, there is another side to this coin. Today there are some (men mostly) who drank too much alcohol, wagered more money than they could afford to lose and will take out their anger and depression on their loved ones. 

Super Bowl Monday remains the busiest day of the year for domestic violence shelters. 

Please, pray for those caught up in this circle of violence, both those who are victims and those who perpetuate it. Both are in need of our prayers, our caring, and if you are in a position to do so, our participation at shelters or rehab groups. With awareness raised, maybe in a few more years, this topic will become redundant and I will have to find another to discuss on Super Bowl Monday. ~ blessings to you all
