Just a Thought – A Synonym for “Look Out”

As the vote was called at the City Council meeting on Monday, a sickening realization came over me; this was the beginning of an abusive relationship. As a woman who has survived a number of abusive relationships, I have been on this Ferris Wheel, and it's ugly.
