It hurts my soul to see everyone attacking Taylor. As a former domestic violence victim of 20 years, I can't believe that she has to continue explaining herself to the public. I was abused violently for years and none of my friends ever intervened. I hid the bruises and my abuser was very careful about how he harmed me. Only my closest friends knew as there is great shame in being in an abusive relationship. Unless you've walked in her shoes, you have no idea the manipulative and controlling iron grip that an abuser can have on your life. She stayed because she had a child. She stayed becuase she was scared. She stayed for all the same reasons all domestic violence victimes stay. Russell had her convinced that she was worthless and that without him, she would fail in her life. I am looking foward to reading your book. You are a stong woman. You are a good mom. Don't let the haters get you down. You are lucky to be alive. My abuser often threatened both suicide and to kill me. I am lucky to be alive as well. Others may see you as weak. I think you are an amazingly strong woman. It takes a strong will to survive the years of mental and physical abuse. I know first hand. No one wants their child's father dead. But you now can see that if he had lived, he might have killed you and your daughter too. Much love and prayers from your home State of Oklahoma to you and your beautiful daughter.
