Rihanna showing courage and poise as she tells her story

rihanna-interview_lWe are seeing a third media frenzy over the Chris Brown and Rihanna story. This time, the world is seeing a poised and courageous Rihanna talk about a very confusing and painful time in her life. She is still trying to sort it out for herself.

One thing she has realized is that young girls are watching her and taking her actions seriously. In the Good Morning America interview, she said she could not take that “lightly.”

You may have noticed that some stories refer to her story as domestic violence and others as dating violence. It doesn’t really matter what you call it. Rihanna was hurt by a man who said he loved her. It was not her fault. It was his choice.

We will continue to see more of this story in the news as we all try to understand how this could have happened. It is a good discussion to have. Thank you, Rihanna for your willingness to share with us.

  1. I’d like to see schools teaching classes on Domestic Violence. It is still rampant in this country. We need to get our young children educated on what is healthy love and the red flags that can be the preludes to domestic violence. We should be starting in the Middle School age children. We also need to teach children to tell about bullying everytime it happens. And our schools need to address bullying in a strong,important, and consistant manner. Bullying is a prelude to domestic violence or a by-product of it possibly being in the home.

  2. We do have classes that teach about Healthy Life Choices in schools. They fall under Family and Consumer Sciences classes. The thing is that these classses are not required. But as a Family and Consumer Science teacher. We have been pushing for years the importance of our classes.@Brenda King

  6. Terran,
    Chris has an opportunity to seek help and recognize his responsibility in harming another person. It is wrong to willing hurt another person and it is even more heinous when we hurt the people we love.
