In 1983, Congress declared April to be National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Since that time, communities across the country have taken the opportunity to raise awareness of issues surrounding child maltreatment and abuse through proclamations, ceremonies, educational forums, tributes, annual walks and candlelight vigils. April is a time to look back, to acknowledge the children who
