Child abuse is more prevalent than all sources of cancer combined, heart disease, obesity, or any other well-funded health issue.
Yet, it continues to receive the least amount of funding & attention to prevent.
The truth - there is no pill that needs to be created, we're not trying to crack a code, or develop a tool, the solution has been the same since the beginning of mankind.
It takes people. People who care. People who will speak out and speak up for children. It takes a community that will not turn a blind eye when they suspect the worst, and invest in helping those less fortunate instead of relying on a government program to do what we, as a society, used to do on our own.
We live in bubbles - ignorant to how many children will be abused today - will die today from abuse. We live in denial that the people we love & trust have the potential to sexually abuse a child. Yet, it continues to happen, to the families that least expect it.
So, we ask you today to take this month as an opportunity to stand up against child abuse and stand up for every child's right to a safe, healthy, and happy childhood. We are part of the solution. We must give them a voice.
