It's been almost two weeks since the elevator footage of former Ravens running back Ray Rice blew up the Internet. And I can't stop thinking about it. There are many reasons why the Rices' domestic-abuse video troubles me, but selfishly, I'll admit that the entire thing makes me think most about my own children. My husband and I have two boys, twins. We also have a daughter.

For years, the Koontz family — Ron, Mary and their daughter, Kelsey — was a "pretty close-knit" group. Mary Koontz made "awesome sandwiches" for her husband and welcomed her daughter's friends into their "quiet suburban home," Kelsey, now 17, said in court Wednesday. "I could see the love between my parents," Kelsey Koontz said. "My childhood was fine. It was awesome." But in a few short years, she went on, the family's harmony dissolved into mistrust and recriminations, her parents separated, and Mary Koontz went to live in Florida.

Here's something that should make feminists smile -- a real, like-mother-like-daughter story. The scene: Light Street, outside a bank, downtown Baltimore. Take Our Daughters To Work Day. Cigarette break. A group of smartly dressed women are smoking. One of the women has her daughter with her. The daughter smokes, too.

I told her to think on it awhile.
