Patrick Stewart on domestic violence

I had no idea that Patrick Stewart, this brilliant, witty & deeply caring man, had grown up in an abusive home.   He chose to be different from the father who modeled life for him.

Patrick Stewart on domestic violence:

“Our house was small, and when you grow up with domestic violence in a confined space you learn to gauge, very precisely, the temperature of situations. I knew exactly when the shouting was done and a hand was about to be raised – I also knew exactly when to insert a small body between the fist and her face, a skill no child should ever have to learn.”
