As soon as you notice a black dot on someone's palm, you need to hurry up and call the police. The dot may look like any other accidental black marker dot, but it specifies a completely different meaning now. Victims going through domestic violence have a hard time contacting the police by themselves, so they have come up with a way to let other people help them out. The black dot is not just a symbol, it is a silent cry for help from all victims of domestic violence.
Domestic Violence Is Real
Domestic violence is no more a mere fantasy. It is real and is something that we all should be concerned for. Victims of Domestic Violence have a hard time combating the abuse and don't even have the ability to share their struggle.
Most abusers are very strict and active when it comes to ensuring that the violence is not communicated to anyone. They have an eye on the victim and check their phone, belongings and all other stuff to ensure that they are not communicating their secrets to anyone else.
No Way Out!
Victims suffering from domestic violence have had to bear with the abuse as there is no easy way out. Reaching out to the police can be a real hassle considering that the abuser has control over the phone and all other accessories.
The Black Dot
Amid all this chaos and panic, users on Facebook have come up with a way for victims of domestic abuse to come out without letting their abuser to get a hint of what they are up to. The solution to this problem is the Black Dot.
How It Works
Victims should mark a visible dark black spot on the center of their palms and show it in public. The dot can be seen by random people during grocery shopping, when the abuser has no idea. The black dot would bail out the victim from the torment.
While domestic abuse victims from across the country and the globe have found a shining ray of hope in between the darkness, the onus of the responsibility falls on you. Wherever you see a woman with a black dot, hurry up and call the police.
Find Out About Them
Call the police with complete information and present it all to them. Just don't get overhyped when you see such a woman in the grocery shop. See who they are with, get down their car number or find out where they are walking to.
