Pinwheel garden in local park to raise awareness about child abuse prevention

  • Flags at Kastman Park

Mongolian parents gathered en masse outside parliament on Saturday to demand tighter laws and preventative measures to combat child abuse following the recent rape of a minor.

"Just enough (wind) to make the wheels spin", said Child Haven executive director Jane Johnson. "Our safe school institute will train school administrators, teachers, nurses, counselors, and resource officer on how to report recognize and disclose child abuse, neglect, and human trafficking", Crime Stoppers CEO Rania Mankarious said. Joining Blankenship are, from left, Dale County Commissioners Frankie Wilson, Charles "Chic" Gary, Steve McKinnon and Chris Carroll. Abusing a child, for all obvious reasons, is a despicable act that results more times than not in the cycle of abuse continuing at the hands of those once abused.

And, they were quickly uprighted as community members and others gathered at Child Haven to commemorate National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

On average, five children in the United States die every day from abuse related injuries. If you are concerned about possible sexual abuse, ask questions.

As the saying goes, "no man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child".


- If your child tells you that he or she has been abused, stay calm, listen carefully and never blame the child.

Locally, the Children's Advocacy Center of Lowndes County provides services to children who have been in abusive environments.

Each pinwheel represented a child who has been abused and served by Child Haven and/or the Solano Courage Center in 2017.

"We actually begin preparations months in advance for this month's events", Wheat said. "A lot of child abuse cases arise from situations and conditions that can be preventable when community programs and systems work together".

The pinwheels are meant to symbolize a carefree childhood that everyone deserves.
