Jenny Hixon has formulated a brilliant 5-year plan that has most of its focus on prevention of domestic violence. She told me that one aspect of her plan that is not in this article is the important work of debriefing families that have experienced murder. Not only will that help the families involved, but gathering information informs how to proceed in the future of preventing more such tragedies. This important work may involve some of us.
