National Child Abuse Awareness Month

The next time you're on Savannah's Victory Drive, you may notice something a little different. Check out the famous trees, and the new blue ribbons. The group Raising Our Children Kindly--ROCK--put the ribbons up to remind everyone April is National Child Abuse Awareness Month.

The color is a reminder of a harsh reality. "The color blue associated with child abuse because of the black and blue bruises of children that are abused," explained ROCK volunteer Colette Balder.

The project is part of the group's Blue Ribbon campaign. It kicks off Saturday morning at 10am at Grayson Stadium.
