It's National Teen Dating Violence Awareness month.

I am a firm believer that when the topic is too hard, a conversation can be started through movies or books. Although many forms of media glorify violence, there are a great number of wonderful movies and books out there that delve into the tough issues with realism and sensitivity and get us talking.
