Child Abuse From A Teenagers Perspective

by Jessica
(Location Undisclosed)

I'm a high school student, writing a speech on child abuse and how we as a worldwide nation are blind-eyed to all of it. I'm sick and tired of the stories about child abuse. If a child is abused in any way, it does affect them. As a teenager, I see this happen. Not just to people my age, but little children that I walk passed on the way to school. I notice it every day, and that's why I want everyone to help me get behind any cause they can, that will, help bring the knowledge to people. It's unfair if we just sit there and watch it happen. As an informed generation, I think we should help. That's all there is to it. Don't point the blame...just try and fix it.

Right Behind You
by: Anonymous

I've also done a couple of speeches on child abuse ,most recently at a district individual speech contest. I plan on working for CPS when I get out of college. I hope maybe someday we can end this once and for all.
