October is synonymous with Breast Cancer Awareness Month and most people know the importance of pink power.  But October is also Domestic Violence Awareness month – purple power.  The NFL made headlines after part 2 of the infamous Ray Rice video was released which thrust domestic violence in the spotlight.  Both causes and colors can and have helped so many people.

Both are important and should be recognized equally and I hope one day the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL gives some love to purple power as well.
