April is Child Abuse Prevention and Sexual Abuse Awareness Month

A fellow blogger, Linda Garner, has written a wonderful post for this month of awareness.  I couldn't do a better write-up myself, so I will just provide a link to her page.  Linda makes one very important point in her write-up that I will take a moment to reiterate:  this type of abuse can only be prevented and eradicated if people educate themselves, open their eyes to truly see and speak out for those who are unable to speak for themselves.

Preventing Abuse Is Everyone's Job, By Linda Garner

May God bless all the "invisible" girls and boys and give them their wings so they can
fly away to safer ... better ... brighter days.
Perhaps after you have this discussion (in Linda's post) with your own children you can make a white pinwheel to place in your yard as a symbol of Light and Hope for a boy or girl in need of your light, prayers and wherever possible your voice.  The "Image Source" link above will take you to a page with detailed instructions for how to make your own pinwheel.
