The Domestic Violence Shelter of Richland and Huron counties, family, friends and advocates for domestic violence awareness gathered at the Ohio State-University Mansfield Campus Thursday to observe October as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The OSU Mansfield Office of Student Life hosted a candlelight vigil inside Ovalwood to remember those who lost their lives to domestic violence and honoring those who survived. Jill Donnewirth, director of community based services for the Domestic Violence Shelter said the vigil raises community awareness. "It's a ceremony to make the community aware that we have people losing their lives due to domestic violence in our community. When you think of domestic violence you think of bigger cities and that's not true." Donnewirth said. "We have a list of names and we have 16 victims that lived in Richland who died due to domestic violence," Donnewirth said. During the vigil victims of domestic violence also shared their stories of survival. Donnewirth said the community must remember that men and children are also victims of domestic violence. If you are someone you know is in imminent danger call the Domestic Violence Shelter at 419-774-5840 or the Crisis Line 800-931-7233. You can also visit www.thedvshelter.com.
