Be Aware of Child Abuse
The Month of April
April is child abuse awareness month. I believe every day and month should be child abuse awareness.
If you suspect or know of child abuse it is your duty to report it!
Children are the future and cannot protect themselves. We must help them.
My views are very, very strong on this subject and I feel a need to get across to the world how important our children are.
I am rounding up pictures of children who have died due to abuse. The first will be my grandson Jonathan.
I am also putting every helpful link towards this epidemic. Please all stand up for the children!
These are just a few--I will leave the link where I got some of these.
We must protect the children. Don't be scared, if you suspect it report it!

- How to Report Child Abuse
If you suspect that a child is being abused or neglected, you should call your local Child Protective Services (CPS) agency or the CPS agency in the State in which the abuse occurred.
I really hope this hub will push some of you to help children. It matters not what state or country you are in; it is happening there too!
I am working on getting funding for a child abuse awareness billboard here in the town I live in.
It is becoming an epedimic. Children are having children and don't know how to raise them. Drugs are also a big culprit in all of this.
YOUR CHILDREN COME FIRST__THERE IS TIME TO KILL YOURSELF LATER. PROTECT YOUR CHILD.
I dedicate this hub to the memory of my precious grandson Jonathan. We love and miss you--I look forward to the day I see your precious face in heaven.
