Cardboard Kids Arrive At District Office

If you've come by the JISD District offices lately, you likely have seen a number of cardboard kids leading up to the front door.  In case you don't know, it's in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention month.  Dr. Ball received a number of wonderful creations in her office from around the district and wanted everyone visiting the offices to see them along the front walk. 


Last year, there were thousands of confirmed cases of child abuse in Bexar County. Here in San Antonio, Childsafe has provided these two-foot-tall cardboard forms for people to create their own unique cardboard kids. Each one represents the thousands of children that are abused or neglected by adults in our community.  The cute cardboard kids are meant to keep people aware so if they see something, say something. In the words of author Ely Wiesel, "Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."
