    Here it is April 21, 2016, and I have heard very little about Child abuse awareness in the news nationally. I have exhausted myself spreading the news about April being child awareness against abuse. I tweet, FB, news sites and talk whenever I can. But you can bet 1 out of 3 people don’t even know that April is awareness against Child abuse.
    But 8 out 10 know that if a man chooses to dress like a woman he can use the woman’s, bathroom. What is wrong with protecting the children of this world. Has everyone gone crazy?
    I have been shouting on public media all month. I can’t even get editors to read my stuff or even respond to my emails. I am a survivor.
    Thank you, Fox 17 for sharing this article regarding April being Child awareness against abuse.
