Y'all know I'm all about protecting kids...I write in my novels about issues that endanger our children such as child trafficking for prostitution in Deliver Us from Evil and gangs in Fear No Evil. Well, October 17-23rd is Safe Schools Week. Here's some info:
From Safe School Week : The week of October 17-23, 2010 is National Safe Schools Week (NSSW). According to the Centers for Disease Control, over 1 million students across America take a weapon to school each month, and over 1.3 million students are injured or threatened with a weapon each year.
National Safe Schools Week provides an opportunity to empower students to keep their schools safe by encouraging them to speak up against school violence.
Please check out their site for more information. Let's ALL get involved to keep our children safe!
