Noted. Thanks Rose. It has always been a global issue, where there are violent, insecure men, that's where we are at peril...

I don't know as anyone has found out the root of the problem. What makes little boys grow up to be abusers ? Did they learn it at home from their Dad, or are they just born with mean-spiritedness ? Possibly the cultures in foreign countries are to blame but in the USA there isn't a good excuse because our society doesn't make light of it any longer.
