Here is the comment from the woman who asked him the question:
When he embraced me he told me "You never have to go through that again, you're safe now". I just kept thanking him.
I hope everyone who needs help in abusive or violent situations has the courage to do so. There are people willing and ready to help you. There are hotline numbers a little farther down.
Wow. Just wow.
And here is the Amnesty International video that is mentioned above. This one is harder to watch, and even more emotional, but so powerful. I was reminded of aspects of my own memories that I had not thought about in some time, as he described feeling some of the same things that I have felt, as a child of domestic violence.
He says things in this speech that I could never have put into words. I can see they are difficult even for him to say, but that does not stop him.
Bravo, and thank you, Sir Patrick Stewart.
