“I heard police or ambulancemen, standing in our house, say, “She must have provoked him,” or, “Mrs Stewart, it takes two to make a fight.” They had no idea. The truth is my mother did nothing to deserve the violence she endured. She did not provoke my father, and even if she had, violence is an unacceptable way of dealing with conflict. Violence is a choice a man makes and he alone is responsible for it.”-Patrick Stewart
You fierce, wonderful man.
Something I think people forget about him is that he has a background, one that wasn’t easy and as a result he’s a great advocate in work against domestic violence. He came to a school near me once, after I’d left school and I went to a different. But he does actual work on this and he does it for a reason - he saw it first hand. He knows it. And he doesn’t want anybody else to go through what his mother went through.
Sir Patrick Stewart people.
