DescriptionA pinwheel suggests whimsy, child-like notions and that's why Prevent Child Abuse America uses it as the symbol for child abuse prevention. On Thursday, at the State Capitol, dozens of children and families plants pinwheels to raise awareness about child abuse. The theme of this year's event was 'The Power of One,' the idea that one small act can help stop child abuse or neglect. Governor Snyder proclaimed April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in Michigan. Last year the state says more than 30,000 children were victims of abuse or neglect.
