child abuse should be prevented EVERY month

*rated R for raw and realism (please read with caution, i am even surprised)


April is

Child Abuse Prevention Month.

How incredibly sad that we have to dedicate a month to reminding people to stop hurting children; a month to “raise awareness” to prevent the harm that occurs from abuse. Or maybe sadder is the true fact that we need more than one month of reminders.  Every day of every month should be a reminder to not hurt children; to not beat children, to not rape or molest children, to not verbally attack children.   STOP hurting them. Ask yourself:  how can people intentionally harm a child…and why?  Can this really happen?

It happens all the time…

Over 3 million reports of child abuse are made each year.

A report of child abuse is made every 10 seconds.

Almost 5 children die every single day as a result of child abuse.


Let me tell you what child abuse feels like…

I know that means you can't take my writing without my permission. If you do, something can happen.
Plus, that is just a real shitty thing to do -- take someone's thoughts -- so don't do it!

I am happy if you want to use my writing to help those involved in the foster care system, but please, leave a comment asking if it is ok and letting me know.
