A current reminder of the importance of dating violence awareness and prevention

…not that we need another one.

Last week a 17-year-old boy in Ypsilanti, Mich., repeatedly stabbed a classmate who told him she may be pregnant with his child.

On Tuesday,  February 1st – the first day of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month – Cortae Kelly took the 17-year-old girl into the woods near their school and stabbed her 12 times in the head, back and hands. The victim – who turned out not to be pregnant and is fortunately expected to recover from her injuries – told authorities that she played dead so Kelly would stop stabbing her. Kelly later confessed to trying to kill the girl; he is in jail.
