I've already gone on about this October and the fact that I’m taking part in the Polished Man Campaign; painting one of my nails to represent the one child that dies every five minutes as a result of violence.
I thought I'd share some material from the past couple of years
And where last year's funding went.
The kids that die due to violence don't even get the 'chance' to grow up and get breast cancer, prostate cancer, or deal with suicide... and any of the myriad of other causes we get behind.
To me, helping protect kids from violence and abuse, particularly that caused by adults, seems to be closer to the 'source'. Almost as though this is where we should be starting, and working back from here.
