Breaking the Cycle of Domestic Violence - Anthem Strong Families
Rivers said his own father was similar. Rivers said even after he and his siblings got away from his father, he still carried a lot of anger inside. He entered a gang and got dangerously close to the point of no return, he said. But the angels around him, as he calls them, helped pull him back from the brink.

For anyone who has suffered from child abuse or domestic violence, you know how important the people around you are to your healing. My mom and step-dad were the angels in my life. Even when I carried so much hurt and anger inside, they helped get me into therapy, they helped me realize nothing that happened to me was my fault.
