Heart and Teardrop
The "x" symbol placed between the heart and the teardrop connects them and shows the relationship between hope, love and help (the heart) and the pain and suffering of abuse (the teardrop). The "x" represents the scars of abuse, but also the efforts to eliminate violence and abuse.
