Child abuse is one of the worst things our world faces. Children are innocent, and to rip that innocence away from them is deplorable, and should be met with the full extent of the law. It is estimated that child protection agencies receive more than 3.6 million referrals which involve more than 6.6 million children (childhelp.org, 2016). Out of all of the industrialized countries that make up the Earth, the United States has one of the worst records regarding child abuse, an average of four to seven children a day are lost to abuse (childhelp.org, 2016).This is a major epidemic that needs to be stopped, though I am not sure how a nation would go about trying to address and resolve this issue, I do know that steps can be taken to help lessen the numbers. The majority of abuse cases are physical, with sexual abuse coming in a close second (childhelp.org, 2016). If we as a people continue to turn a blind eye to this problem it willcontinue to worsen, and get to the point where no child will be safe.
