A name called Violence What is violence? My first thought, when I considered this question was that, violence is a behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage or kill or something. I have been abused verbally, mentally and physically. Different family members are to blame. When I was about 8-years-old, my father would hit me with a hanger every time I didn’t tell him my mom at that time. It’s funny because I had never seen my mom. Last time, he’d wake me up in the middle of the night, asking me for money to buy him a beer, but I didn’t have any money at that time, so he’d hit me 8 times because I was 8 years old. I remember that I was celebrating my 9th birthday alone at home; I had a cupcake and a candle. Just when I was about to blow the candle, my dad entered the room and grabbed my cupcake. He threw it in the trash and hit me for no legitimate reason. I was crying. I honestly had no idea what I should have done. I hated that day, as well as my dad. My older brother and I have been so different. He had always been really violent towards me many times. I remember him kicking me many times in every part of my body. Once, he kicked me so much that it left me gasping for air. He’s married now and is abusive toward his wife and kids too. Over the years, I tried to stay away from him because he used to drink. I remember one time, h got drunk and then tried to rape me. I tried to tell my father, but instead he slapped my face, and as expected, I was crying to my room. The reason why he slapped me was my brother had always been his favorite child. I have an uncle whom I hate and I hope to never, ever face
