If you add a black ribbon to the Blue you are also remembering the victim's who did not survive!

Sure Nancy blue is a color which also says "blue blue your heart is true". I will certainly use a blue ribbon for the sake of the children. Thanks Nancy for being such a fervent activist for the cause of child abuse. It's really sad especially after reading how one 7 year old girl had died because of the ill treatment and abuse from the step father and her own mother. It has touched me so much. Child abuse has definitely got to stop one way or the other. Thanks for the info. Noted!

Oh I forgot to mention that I do agree with Victoria in using the black ribbon as a mark for those who did not survive child abuse - like the girl I mentioned above. Thanks Victoria for your sending an ecard related to child abuse. It's really nice to know that so many of you are taking up the cause on child abuse. God bless you all.

Ivy -- such a heart! (I'm proud to know you.)

In fact, I am pleased to know so many others who understand the value of children, and the depth of our responsibility to protect them.

From article:
***More than 3 million children are victims of child abuse each year and almost 1.8 million children are reported missing each year, many of whom are abducted from their homes and front yards. Those are only the ones that are reported.

I can't think of a better month to GET INVOLVED!! It's time we make an active effort to support, and get involved in any group who cares for, and helps to promote the safety of our children.
