Child Abuse Prevention And Awareness Month

April is Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month. It is also Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Every month, for everyone, should be dedicated to child abuse and sexual assault awareness and prevention. The stats that I read tell me that women and children (male and female) are not given much value in our current or past societies.  Hopefully blogs like mine can help to change those values for future children and women.

I found a blog called AAUW Dialog that has an article called "10 Ways to Participate in Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Here is the link:

Here is a link that provides resources and 3 videos about being a voice for children who have no voice of their own.

I just found a website called Project Unbreakable, the beginning of healing through art, hosted by Grace Brown, photographer. Please check out her project which gives a link to a video explaining what she does and why.

With this article, I now have 349 posts on my blog with 102,737 views of my blog page over the past 4+ years. My blog will celebrate its fifth anniversary on June 1, 2010. I want to just take a minute to say Thank You to all of those who are supportive of my blog and me and actually take the time to read my articles as I publish them.

Daniel and I are off playing Civil War reenactor for the weekend in Pleasant Hill, Louisiana. Going to spend part of that time visiting with family too, while we are in north Louisiana. Have a glorious weekend.
Namaste. (means the Christ in me greets the Christ in you or something along those lines) Sending love and (((Hugs))) to you all.

Thanks for the links. I am always appreciative when I see bloggers using their space to raise awareness for these most significant issues. I, too, recently stumbled upon Project Unbreakable. It's very powerful.

Kimberly, you are very welcome. I am an incest survivor and spreading awareness of child abuse and the fact that you can heal is why I choose to write my blog.
