Domestic Violence Awareness Month

by Jessica Cervantez

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Students at Coston Elementary in Lufkin received a lesson about domestic violence by hosting a balloon launch.

Every purple balloon stood for a victim that lost his or her life to domestic violence. One-hundred-forty-three Texans lost their lives and 123 children lost their parents to domestic violence last year.

You are asked to call the Women's Shelter of Deep East Texas if you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence.
