Tuesday afternoon, April 23rd, I did a live broadcast at Texas Gas for the Stand Against Child Abuse event. The turn-out was impressive.

The support shown by passersby via car horns was awesome! I also learned a startling statistic. There were 2656 reported cases of child abuse or neglect in the Two Rivers Region of Kentucky in 2012. That's most of Western Kentucky and does NOT include Louisville or Lexington.

Again, startling. That number needs to go away.

Events like Tuesday's Stand Against Child Abuse are a good way to get the word out. If you know of a situation in which a child is being abused or neglected, please call 1-877-KYSAFE1. That's 1-877-597-2331.

Here are some images from the Stand Against Child Abuse, including one featuring me and my cool new hat, courtesy of the Owensboro Twisters! Enjoy!
