SOUTHINGTON - A Connecticut woman's own personal story about domestic violence has the president's ear.
Casey Morley, a hair stylist in Southington, wrote an autobiography about being abused as a child and into adulthood.
Morley, 63, said she sent a letter and her book, "Crawling Out," to President Barack Obama about a year-and-a-half ago.
Monday, she got a response from the White House.
Morley said one of her favorite parts of the letter is Obama stated that addressing domestic violence is a priority, not only as president, but also as a father.
"It's bringing awareness because it's such a high level of endorsement," she said.
Morley plans to frame the president's letter and hang it on the wall for all to see, and for all to get the message.
