Breaking the Silence...STOP CHILD ABUSE!
Disturbing Images of Abuse
Breaking the Silence: CHILD ABUSE in AMERICA
According to recent statistics on Child Abuse in America...over 3 million reports of child abuse are made every year in the United States; however, those reports can include multiple children. In 2007, approximately 5.8 million children were involved in an estimated 3.2 million child abuse reports and allegations.
After reading these startling statistics about child abuse, I couldn't imagine living in a civilized country that reports such atrocious information about some of it's most helpless citizens, and doing NOTHING about the problem. And so...hoping to encourage more awareness about violence against children in this country, I am sharing a video I produced on the subject. After viewing my video, please consider what you can do to make a difference in the life an abused child. From my research, I've learned that no amount of money or time is too little for such a worthy cause. For more information In addition to the resources listed in my video, you can call the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hot Line at 1-800-4-A-Child, or visit their website at: http://www.childhelp.org/2009/home
