I'm wearing a pin with the shape of a ribbon in bright blue.
No, it doesn't mean I've won a prize. It's the symbol of National Child Abuse Prevention Month and that's something I certainly care about.
I don't know why they chose the blue ribbon to represent fighting that reprehensible problem. Maybe the blue represents bruises? Or maybe they chose it because all the other colors have already been used for symbolic ribbons. (You can see my previous post about the ribbons here: http://onwordsblog.blogspot.com/2013/07/ribbons.html )
But, regardless of the color, I hope everyone who reads this post joins me in hoping to stop child abuse.
