Hook Example: Question/Startling Statistic

A speaker on domestic violence began this way:

“How many of you know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence? —I see about one third of the room.  Now, how many of you know someone who has had breast cancer?—That looks like everyone in the room.  Now I’d like to share some interesting statistics with you. One out of eight women will get breast cancer. But one out of four—twice as many—are victims of violence at the hands of a loved one. So, more than likely, every one of you knows someone who is or has been a victim.”
