A young mother from Ireland posted a video to Facebook in hopes that telling the story of her recent alleged attack by her partner will help raise awareness about domestic violence, and encourage others to leave.

Emma Murphy usually uses her Facebook page to discuss fitness and nutrition (she calls it a "healthy moms blog). But Monday, she posted a video of herself with a black eye, discussing they alleged domestic violence incident with her now former partner.

I thought long and hard before posting this video, this is very difficult for me but I have to do what is RIGHT, if you or anyone you know has it is in a similar situation please share this video to inspire other women around the world, violence is NOT the answer!!!!
