Kelly has done an amazing job with this song and video, very powerful message written in the lyrics. With domestic violence on the increase around the world, people need this kind of inspiration to have the nerve to speak up. Well done Kelly and congratulations on this achievement !!!

It.s an amazing song and video Michael. Hope it helps get the message across. there are so many sufferers of DV out there. The world needs an end to this, and no-one should have to suffer such fate. I have the greatest admiration for Kelly and wish her the best possible future. Thank you for sharing.

"True love conquers all things..."  As an abused woman, I speak from the realm of experience when I say that too many people  have lofty expectations of what consititutes TRUE love.  Loveis a free choice - no strings attached.  Too often it is confused with sexual satisfaction - once satiated, sex loses its luster and one or both partners will "stray."  When I walked the aisle on my 19th birthday with a man 13 years older, I knew I hadn't made the choice - he made it.  Because he was wealthy and influential and took an apartment on Park Avenue, my mother was all too willing to make all the arrangements but Yours Truly knew this was not the love of my life - my soul mate.  I relinquished my free will and bad karma was incurred by all.  NEVER let the opinions of others determine which path your heart must take in order to be at pease - with self, with God, with others.  You cannot say "forever" to someone you do not truly love.  With the fire of passion droened by other people's opinions, your heart cannot make the best choice.  Open your ears and your heart to love and it willfind you.  Give and you shall receive.  Do not be discouraged if you make a mistake and succumb to the open warfare of bad mating.  You chose to get in - now choose to get out.  The eyes of a sincere heart do not lie.  You can see as clearly through a sloving person as you can an undisturbed puddle of water - clear to the soul and that's where yo find love.  Love is not just in the words but in the deeds; not in the saying but in the doing.  Anyone can profess a great love but there are few indeed who can live it.  Remember that the opposite of love is not hate but neglect. If you hate a beautiful flower, chances are you will rip it up and crush it beneath your feet.  It's life is over - no more to grace the world.  But if you neglect that bloom, it will die a slow and painful death - wilting day by day - losing its youthfulness along with its beautiful fragrance.  What is an abusive relationship?  One which does not honor the Presence of the Beloved; simply one that does not care what happens to er or him or even their offspring.  How much more insidious damage to a human being than neglect?  Think before you leap into your relationships and think w see with the eyes of your heart.  It may look likelove,it may sound like love;itmay smell likelove but love isn't love until you give it away.  Love begins - and ends - with YOU.  You can nurture and nourish it, or you can pick it and crush it beneath your feet.  Only YOU can make it grow and only YOU can cause it to die.  Love is always the first priority and the last opportunity; the beginning and the end - the Alpha and the Omega.  God is love - creative and giving.  Too often love and kindness in a person is interpreted as "sweetness" and perhaps seeing the other as a "sap."  Be sweet and kind; assertive not aggressive.  If you see your significant Other as taking advantage of you, nip it in the bud immediately.  You are a child of the Most High God - settle for nothing less than being treated as such - a Queen or a King - with respect, with honor, with compassion and mercy, generosity and kindness.  If your "treatment"  suddenly turns to disdain, arguments, egotism, selfishness, straying, cheating,  lying - i.e. rejoices at the wrong and not the right - time to take agood hard look at the relationship.  Remove yourself from the situation - oftimes the partner will realize their mistake and return to correct it.  If not, "tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."  Continue to love for it is not love's "fault but our own selfih ego that wants what it wants not is what is best for the highest good of all.  Trust me, I sought love and conquered my Four Horsemen:physical attraction; sexual satisfaction, a self-centered abuser who wanted only my money and possessions not my well being and finally the soul-mate who professes to love me  more than the world's most beautiful and intelligent women sincce I was 16 (now anearly 73), most specifically the past 25+ years - many on-line proposals but alas not the beautiful face-to-face - eye to eye - proposal I once expected from such a phenomenol Heaven sent love. Will Windarella's Prince, the King of her Heart, ever come to her rescue or will he continue to profess what appears to be a lie?  Indeed I have my very own fairytale to live,complete with heros and villains but I hope I don't have to wait much longer lest I be destined for a death-bed wedding ROFL  Please my fellow sufferers of domestic violence - do not judge future relationships based upon past experience.  True Love conquers all things and if it hasn't found you yet, itwill.  Trust Love conquers all things - forsaking all others....in sickness and in health...in good times and bad...until death do us part (and even death will not part True Lovers).
