I want to tell people that family violence happens to anybody, no matter how nice your house is, no matter how intelligent you are.
Family violence is an entrenched epidemic that we've lived with since time began, so we've got a long way to go. But I do believe the tide is turned. It's no longer a subject that only occurs behind closed doors
What I want people to take from this is that it isn't simple. People judge you, people tell you what you should do. You do the best you can.
What we have to continue to remind ourselves is that violence is a choice.
Let's start calling family violence 'terrorism' and then maybe we will start to see that investment of funding applied to where it needs to be.
This is about saving children's lives. It is not about agencies and services protecting themselves.
Children have very little voice, and the coroner's inquest is about Luke's voice, and making sure Luke is heard and respected and honoured. I don't want him to have died in vain.
I never want anyone to be sitting where I'm sitting and to have lost their son, because I can never get Luke back.
Luke was a little boy in a growing body that felt pain and sadness and fear for his mum, and he always believed he would be safe with his dad.
What we want is to make sure that people don't go through what I'm going through ... and we have to understand that even since Luke's death, children have been killed.
