In a parking lot of a store tonight I witnessed a man being very verbally abusive to a woman (pregnant) and physically holding her back from running away. They walked around the parking lot - he following her and saying very mean things - for several minutes. I wasn't sure what I should do. I sat there in my car waiting for some sign to do something as I watched them continue this confrontation. As I began to drive away, not sure what to do, a police car - two in fact - drove into the parking lot! I was so relieved. They stopped. I walked over to one of them and reported the public domestic confrontation. He immediately drove over to them.
I am so relieved I said something. I didn't stick around to see what came of it with the police officers, but I pray that I stopped something terrible from happening once these two people were out of a public setting.
Be someone's sunshine when they can't reach out, but obviously need help.
If you see something - say something.
