In this episode of The Red Light Sports Ramble, Evan and Troy will discuss the trade between the Milwaukee Brewers and Houston Astros.

The whole nation saw Wilmer Flores cry, thinking that he had been traded to the Milwaukee Brewers, along with teammate Zack Wheeler. The Brewers and New York Mets had reached an agreement to trade Carlos Gomez for Flores and Wheeler. However, after the Mets reviewed Gomez’s medical record, they nixed the deal. Citing medical reasons, Gomez was still a Brewer.

Until Thursday night, when it was announced that the Brewers traded Gomez and pitcher Mike Fiers to the Houston Astros. The Brewers will receive four prospects: outfielders Brett Phillips and Domingo Santana, left-hander Josh Hader and right-hander Adrian House. The most promising prospect is Phillips.

Between 3 and 10 million children will witness some form of domestic abuse this year. There are many problems that can arise from witnessing abuse. The three most common area problems are: behavioral and emotional, cognitive functioning and attitudes, and longer term effects. Every child will react differently.

Tonight on the show, Laura from We Are Survivors International shares her story. In her words: “Two years ago, I left my emotionally and physically abusive husband. It has been an emotional roller coaster but we are two years free and my two children and I are working through the aftershocks of a violent marriage. The effects of one monster’s brutal behavior has changed our world, our outlook on life and relationships. We went through hell, but we are working through it and are in a much brighter and safer place now. The three of us will deal with the impact of this for the rest of our lives, however we are survivors and I am hopeful that we will break the cycle.”

Laura talks about “why she stayed”, the cycle of abuse, how it effected her children, and the plan to leave. Enough was enough, for Laura, when she was being abused and her five-year old daughter came downstairs. With her daughter seeing the abuse, it was time for her to put her plan in place. A plan that took over a month, but now her and her children are survivors and are making to strides to overcome the tragedy. Even today, her children have anxiety and trust issues, from witnessing the abuse.

Laura is associated with We Are Survivors , a worldwide organization that is there to support and advise men, women and children in Domestic Violence situations in a friendly environment. If you know someone who is in an abusive relationship, or you yourself are, make sure you reach out to someone, because as Laura said “It doesn’t get better.”
