Child Abuse Prevention Month Wraps Up

People in Greene County gathered Thursday evening to wrap up child abuse prevention month.

Singers from Greene County High School sang a hymn inspired by raising awareness for child abuse. Savannah Mooring and Ashlyn Doyle presented their award winning poem, angels in the sky.

Greene County Social Service Members say over 120-thousand children were reported being abused or neglected last year. Raising awareness and trying to help children is why director Christy Nash says this is close to her heart.

Nash says she hopes to save the lives of children. North Carolina reported 25 children died last year due to abuse or neglect by their parents of caregiver.

    This is great. As a survivor of abuse i feel raising awareness is a key issue in eliminating child abuse. Dealing with the abuse as a child is hard and even now being almost 30 I still have a hard time dealing with it. I can not begin to realize why someone would want to hurt a child. Its just not physical abuse that takes place but mental as well. I endured both as a child and would not wish it on anyone. People instead of hurting children look at them as a gift give them all the love and support you can and if you dont feel that it is possible then please look into adoption. Give these innocent children a chance to live their lives and grow up experiencing what children should.
