Meme with Meaning

I'm so damn The current mood of augustdreams at

This comes from Vickithecute who got it by way of nicim who snagged it from my wise and wonderful Candoor.

This quote comes from nicim:

"'s important to understand that the broken hearts, damaged lives and pain caused from physical, mental, emotional, or psychological abuse happens to real people. People you've laughed with, cried with, and come to know so well, and whose lives you share every time you come here...

...The places you can call, or go, or even email. Or give to someone, anyone, else who needs them."
