Keep Pink Awareness Going After Tomorrow!

Tomorrow marks Halloween and the end of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There have been some interesting efforts to educate women about breast cancer and prevention methods, from a Tweeting bra to the "Pink Out" of The White House. 
Ultimately, a successful awareness month keeps women alert and engaged all year long. Women who conduct monthly breast exams, limit alcohol consumption, up their fruits and veggie intake, exercise regularly and keep their weight within "normal" limits are on a good path.

The mother's boyfriend beat the two year old to death. Prior to this incident, the mother reported domestic violence over a period of time... years. 

It is common to find that when communities are being educated on significant issues recognized nationally in October that normally adults are targeted. It is important for adults to be targeted as breast cancer and domestic violence directly effects them. Who else does this directly effect?
