Going blue… Two-year-old Maddi Clark, daughter of Rodger and Amy Clark, was one of many in the crowd gathered on the courthouse lawn early last Friday morning to mark “Go Blue Day.” One hundred blue balloons were released, symbolizing the 191 reported victims of abuse and neglect in Medina County and to bring attention to Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month. It is important to note that this number is only the reported cases in our county, remembering that there are still children who suffer from abuse and neglect yet are undetected. We all have the responsibility to protect our children from harm. If you suspect the abuse or neglect of a child, it is your duty to report it immediately. Call the police, the 24-hour Family Violence Hotline, 800-252-5400 or Bluebonnet Children’s Advocacy Center, 830-426-8848, but for childrens’ sake, call someone and help save a child.
