COLUMBUS OHIO -- An Ohio mom took to social media after a hospital employee made a comment that angered her. According to Merrit Smith's Facebook, her daughter was hit by a boy at school. The blow was so severe, according to her post, the little girl needed stitches. While registering her daughter for the hospital visit, she says the man behind the desk at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus told the girl, "I bet he likes you." Unwilling to let what Smith believes was a lapse in judgement on the hospital employee's part slide, she took to social media, taking a stance against domestic violence. Smith's post said in part: "In that moment, hurt and in a new place, worried about perhaps getting a shot or stitches you were a person we needed to help us and your words of comfort conveyed a message that someone who likes you might hurt you. No. I will not allow that message to be ok. I will not allow it to be louder than 'That's not how we show we like each other.'" The post struck a chord with many and has been shared thousands of times.
