Save the World Saturday: Safe

It seems like everywhere you look in October these days, there is something pink: a ribbon, a shopping bag, a hat. October has become synonymous with breast cancer awareness, and I think that's a great thing.
I will, however, be devoting another Saturday this month to breast cancer awareness. You see, there are only twelve months in a year, and there are a lot more than 12 important causes, so most months double and triple (and quadruple) up.
October is also domestic violence awareness month. (This campaign is signified by the purple ribbons you may be seeing around.)

The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence 

I also wanted to share this video of Patrick Stewart talking about his own personal experiences with domestic violence.
