Dozens of people gathered at the Lenoir County courthouse Wednesday morning to remember children suffering from child abuse.
It was all part of child abuse prevention month which runs all month long.
A flag was raised and more than 1,300 pictures of hands were displayed in the courthouse. Each hand represented a child killed from child abuse in our country.
Twenty-five children died last year in N.C. from abuse. That number is down from more than 30 in 2007.
