Take Action Tuesday: stopping child abuse  

This week's Take Action Tuesday is inspired by this upsetting story. In Pennsylvania, a two-year-old girl died after being beaten with a video game controller by her mother's boyfriend. It wasn't the first time he had beaten her, but for some reason, the mother never did anything to stop it. Both of them have been charged and taken into custody.

This story killed me, especially after seeing a picture of the little girl. It makes me wonder how often this happens and how many children are abused each year. According to statistics, almost 900,000 in 2005 alone.

Help stop it:

What next?
