Emotion, lack of sleep, long days in the rain, sun and cold and making new friends every single minute is something we all go through for 175 hours a year. This year was one we will never forget. You are someone we will never forget. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your life.
Being part of a child abuse prevention campaign means that you don't even have to know a thing about it. In fact, if you know nothing about what it feels like to be affected by child abuse, you have a lot of power. This is who has taken a stand. This is your challenge.
Tell someone. Speak up. That's what they say. It's easier said than done. When you're in that situation, it's not as simple. What if the person abusing finds out? Things could (and likely do) get worse. There is a way for anyone to report child abuse and keep the child safe.
Here are some pictures that I took from the first few days at Live For 175. There is a story behind most of these photos and I'm glad to share those. Cycle to Break the Cycle in Village at Meridian is happening right now.
