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.
