Wouldn't it be wonderful if we as a country could take this tragedy and make it meaningful? If we could take to the streets and say no more. Women and children will no longer lose their lives because of family violence. To make law makers policy makers, politicians take notice? To make everyone in every community know that family violence will not be tolerated and victims will be supported and helped and not blamed.

When I say "Id off myself" etc, I am not having a go at her because she hasn't done that, or whatever else you seem to think I mean. I am saying i wouldn't be anywhere near as strong as her. I don't appreciate my words being twisted, but when i posted last night I was feeling very emotional about this so i see now I seem to have not made myself clear. But whatever. Just thought id respond to your post since you were picking out what I said and and portraying it to sound not like the way I actually meant.
This is the first time I have ever seen a mother be able to be so strong so soon after their child has been killed. I agree no one knows how we'd react until in the situation, but i certainly do not believe id have the courage and strength that this woman has in order to cope. That is why i have more so been intrigued with her. Not judging.

Just read this excellent article on poor Lukes murder and similar domestic violence issues.
Basically it's about time people recognise that these situations are somewhat forseeable and more $$ needs to be pumped into support services for couples experiencing custody disputes.

What an excellent article and I agree with every point.
