Dark Tears Light Tears - Watershed Survivors of Domestic Violence highlights a few brave women representing the many. It offers new concepts and valuable insight into the warning signs and characteristics of a potential abuser and why this problem exists. It symbolizes the struggles associated with survivors and perhaps non-survivors of domestic abuse and violence. It focuses on Anna Cutters, a self-made affluent, nonprofit female executive who overcame an impoverished upbringing under the worst circumstances. Anna thought she had escaped and hidden her former life as a victim of domestic abuse. However, unknown circumstances revealed her dark past, which forced her to once again come face to face with debilitating events of her childhood years, and the life of five other women who had experienced abusive relationships. Dark Tears Light Tears create awareness and reminds us about the devastating effects of domestic violence. Statistics support a historical component, and glorifying moments restore us, reminding us that weeping endures for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Dark Tears Light Tears makes no separation between Violence committed by an intimate partner within the home and the oppression of other human beings induced by slavery during the 1800s. Domestic violence, defined as "any threatening form of mental, emotional, psychological, or physical force against a spouse, intimate partner, person, or a group that either results or is likely to result in injury, or death within the home," Dark Tears Light Tears brings controversial and often hidden subject matter to the forefront. Subject matters include politics, religion, Christianity, baptism, abuse, poverty, and gun control. It emphasizes the benefits of positive emotions, and the impact of negative emotions. Most importantly, it explains fundamental reasons for not being afraid or ashamed to share stories of abusive relationships. It introduces new perspectives and explores historical events necessary for shaping our future. Dr. Brenda J. Lewis graduated with distinction from Capella University, St. Paul, MN.
