Interview with Bill Mitchell, president of the Kristin Mitchell Foundation

See part of an interview with Bill Mitchell conducted by a local television station. These interviews are rather difficult to do since you do not know where the questions will go, and there is very little time to think of your answers. The subject of dating abuse and violence is also very personal to us because our daughter was murdered by an ex-boyfriend.

The Kristin Mitchell Foundation

President. Started with foundation in 2007.

Our foundation was founded by my daughter's friends in 2007. My wife and I joined as board members Today I am president and Michele is treasurer and secretary. Our foundation conducts Kristin's Krusade, a 5k run/walk to raise funds that we use to award grants to organizations working in the domestic violence field. We also give speeches, which have helped people immensely.

The Mitchell family experienced the nightmare of dating abuse when Kristin was taken from us in June 2005. Since then we have focused our emotional energies on improving the lives of others.

The Kristin Mitchell Foundation has learned from an impressive list of dedicated people including DV counselors, leaders of domestic violence agencies, prosecutors, detectives, school systems, victim survivors, and other parents who lost their daughters to dating violence.

Dating violence is a plague on those we love most. And yet most people have no idea what it is. It is all around us and we don't know what we should be looking for.

That's where YOU can help by letting me help.

If your organization needs someone to clearly explain what dating violence is, who it happens to, and what the warning signs are, then bring me in. Benefit from our tragedy. Information gathered from ten years enduring this will mean someone you love or care about might live a better life. Or might just live.

Survivors and informed parties have told us we have saved quite a few young women from becoming victims or even fatalities of dating abuse. Had we saved just one person our efforts would have been worth it.

Here is a fact I just gained: of the ER patients with domestic-violence related wounds admitted to one particular hospital in Maryland, 90% were teens. That is shocking. This is someone's young daughter, sister, friend or neighbor.

This happens to people you love. There are no do-overs when this kind of tragedy occurs.

A child's birthday is celebrated differently when a tragedy like this strikes. Holidays are dreadful when a family needs to stop by a cemetery so they can visit a child's grave. The empty seat at the table is unbearable.

Do what you can to educate yourself and those you care about.

That's where I can help. WhenDatingHurts.com
