Phoenix, AZ — Author and advocate, Tiffany Mensah has written and released her first book titled, Forgotten: Living in the Shadows of Domestic Violence. It is estimated that globally one billion children are growing up in homes plagued by domestic violence, however to date, awareness of the childhood trauma caused by such sits around 15%.
Why when the numbers are so high, and with so many children at stake are there not more conversations?
Considering how they carry such an emotional burden alongside victims, it seems that these children are oft times forgotten and their stories of survival and resilience are buried deep into the walls of childhood homes and places of abandonment.
Today, proudly and wholly Tiffany’s book gives readers a firsthand account of what it’s like to be that child offering up her raw and uncut vantage point of pain forgotten, buried, resurrected, and healed, she minces no words in letting the reader know that you are more than the trauma you witnessed.
Through her honest transparent conversation like story-telling, she empowers the reader to dig deep and look at their scars while forging forward to find the healing that only faith and honesty can foster. Tiffany gives hope and the knowledge that it is possible to live a life free from what you witnessed.
