Gut wrenching! There is no other way to describe this letter that a 7-year old boy living in a domestic violence shelter with his mother has written. This 7-year old boy could have been my son had I decided to stay in an abusive relationship. Children see, feel, and experience domestic violence in their homes a lot more than people may think. His letter has gone viral and just at 7-years old he has impacted and touched the lives of many. He is courageous for expressing himself to 'Santa' the way he did. It is also interesting to see the items he asked for, he didn't ask for anything major did he?!
