Dear Priscilla Bennett Friends,
I’m Harry Bennett, Priscilla’s husband, and I wanted to say hello and let you know that I’m in complete support of my wife’s fight to end domestic violence. We were discussing it over dinner—Priscilla made my favorite meatballs and angel hair marinara—and she said, “Harry, if you feel that strongly about what I’m trying to do, then why don’t you say something about it?” So here I am, after washing the dishes, and not knowing how to start except to say that I’m so proud of my wife. Unlike a lot of people who sympathize with a situation and do nothing—she’s taken this issue on as her own.
Over the years, I have watched her come home from working all night in the emergency room exhausted and drained from dealing with the victims of domestic violence but determined to do something—to somehow give them a voice to make a difference. We worked as a team. I took care of our daughters until she came home early in the morning. We got them ready for school, and then I was off to my plumbing business, and she got some rest during the day unless one of them was sick. We worked together with no harsh words. I didn’t understand anything about domestic violence. The thought of hitting my wife—verbally degrading or defiling her in any way was abhorrent to me—beyond my comprehension.
I hope that you will support Priscilla in her efforts to fight this epidemic, and please let me know what I can do to help. I want to be a male voice speaking out for good and supporting my wife.
Thank you for your time, and please help to spread the word to help as many people as we can by going to her website priscillabennett.com and connect with information and support. As Priscilla says, we all have SOMETHING TO BE BRAVE FOR.
Will be in touch soon…
