Child abuse knows no age, race, sex, religion or socioeconomic status. Every child is vulnerable.
In 1998 over (3,195,000) children were reported for child abuse and neglect to child protective service
(CPS) agencies in the United States. These are the last stat reports on abuse Physical abuse represented
22% of confirmed cases, Sexual abuse 8%, Neglect 54%, Emotional maltreatment 4% and other forms of
maltreatment 12%. You may think of these as just number,but Behind each of these there is a story of
a real child hurt, a family torn apart, future relationships damaged. Do you know what is going on in
your neighborhood? I wanted to share a little story with you,today we had a couple arrested in our neighborhood
for the death of their seven month old daughter,the couple admitted that they kicked the baby down the
hall into her bedroom,because she had been up all night crying,and they could no longer stand the crying.
Unfortunately this is just one many children who are physically abused,verbally abused,and killed each
years. Every day you turn on your television you hear about another child who has been abused.Please
for the sake of all the children in the world,please help to stop child abuse,before it's too late.
