What a beautiful idea...Pinwheels for Prevention

How innocent... how powerful... a family evening in the park with some ice cream and bubbles turned into an evening of prevention awareness. We pulled up to the park with ice cream cones and bubbles ready to enjoy the sunshine. My mouth dropped. What an amazing view...thousands of pinwheels staked in the ground. There were no signs, no markers explaining why all of these wonderful pinwheels were being displayed. I finally saw a lady with a camera and asked her did she know what these were for...she said Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness. When I got home I did a little research…what an amazing idea!
A clip from the Hamilton County website:
"April 8, 2010 -- More than 5,300 colorful pinwheels will be planted at Burnet Woods Park at 3 p.m. Monday, April 12, in a dramatic attempt to draw attention to the horrific problem of child abuse. In Hamilton County, 5,353 reports of abuse and neglect to the 241-KIDS child abuse hotline were validated in 2009. Hamilton County joins all 88 Ohio counties participating in Pinwheels for Prevention as a kickoff to Child Abuse Prevention Month in April."


We just happened to witness the magic.
Praying for all the children that are abused and neglected all over the world!!
