Tonight's SPECIAL GUEST is Kimberly Day of Every Child Matters, a coalition that seeks to end child abuse. Centered in Washington, DC, Kim coordinates for the Protect Our Kids Act & Petition, now before the House and Senate, which seeks to create a National Commission on Child Abuse Fatalities. 2,500 American children are killed every year as a result of child abuse and 80 percent of those killed are under the age of four. Almost half are under age one. Ms Day says, "All it takes is a minute of your time to click here and sign the petition asking your member of congress to support this act, then send a letter to your Congressmembers." Much more must be done. The rate of child abuse fatalities continues to rise. An overhaul of the nation’s child protection system is long overdue. The coalition’s goal is to help prompt such an overhaul. Please also see We Can Do Better - a 24 page PDF filled with satistics, and the Coalition Fact Sheet.
