Child Abuse

Children all around the world are being abused. 
A lot of people don’t know that abusing isn’t just hitting or yelling. It is sometimes killing children. More than five children die every day from child abuse, and 80% of the children that die from abuse are under four. This issue is very serious because people are taking their anger and frustration out on children. This causes pain and sorrow for those children. The children didn’t do anything wrong. They just wanted to be appreciated. This issue is important to me because I hear about children being abused and dying and I think about how horrible it is and if more people knew how serious this issue is maybe it could be stopped.

For my hexagon I drew a big blue ribbon in the middle that represents the prevention
of child abuse. I also drew a girl being abused with tears coming out of her
eyes. I did this to show the pain that the children go through. I also drew a
girl smiling with a pinwheel in her hand and a ribbon on her shirt to show that
you can prevent child abuse and help the kids who have to go through it
everyday. For my media I used marker, sharpie, and colored pencil.

I also did Child Abuse so I understand the blue ribbon and the blue ribbons around the whole hexagon were a great idea!

I liked that you depicted the child that is abused to bring awareness, but also, the child that is living the happy childhood without abuse.
