KENAI — A group of nearly 20 women were asked recently to describe the emotions they would feel about having a loved one abused without on-looking bystanders reporting it.
Words such as rage, anger, fear, sorrow and disbelief were shouted out.
They were then asked to describe how they would feel if a bystander assisted the loved one in need.
Words such as relief, thankful, grateful and joy were said out loud in response.
“That is why we are here today,” said Jennifer Messina, PhD, and director of training and development with Green Dot Etcetera.
