Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love, and love certainly deserves celebration. Except, of course, when it is “crazy love”— a phrase Leslie Morgan Steiner gave to her memoir, Crazy Love, of domestic violence as well as to the TED talk below. Her brief, 16 minute account of her experience of domestic violence is sobering and important to hear. She describes the “grooming” stage that led to deep feelings of love for her first husband, and the later betrayal of her trust by his sadistic treatment. She points out how common domestic violence is, and calls for shining a “spotlight” on this all too prevalent scourge.
