National Child Abuse Awareness Month

Dear Fellow Journalers,

April is National Child Abuse Awareness Month.

 

April is the month set aside to remind us all of the horrible and devastating effects of child abuse.

Few of us realize the terrible long-term effects that child abuse has. While we may be appalled when we see or hear about an act of child abuse on TV or in the newspaper, few realize that the act of abuse is only the beginning.

Did you know for instance that a whopping 88% of all psychopathic criminals have child abuse at the core of their problems? Non Abused children grow up with a view of the world that includes a healthy outlook that includes morals, social adjustment, and a belief that you must do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Abused children have this healthy outlook destroyed when they are either mentally, physically, or sexually abused. They look at the world as a place of punishment, and come to feel that it is “normal” for them to punish others in the same manner.

The only way to end this terrible cycle is for us to report child abuse wherever and whenever we see, or even suspect it. Only by removing a child from the hell of child abuse as quickly and early as possible can we help ensure that the child will receive treatment to counteract the long-term effects of the abuse they have suffered.

Please help insure a healthy, happy, well-adjusted childhood for ALL children. In so doing, YOU are also insuring a bright future for America itself, free from the devastating effects that we know child abuse causes.

END CHILD ABUSE TODAY! REPORT IT NOW! END THE SENSELESS DESTRUCTION OF HUMAN LIFE IT CAUSES! IT’S UP TO US ALL
