April is Child Abuse Awareness month and to honor child abuse victims, blue ribbons are currently being displayed all around our community. But, have you ever wondered what the meaning of the blue ribbon really is?
The Blue Ribbon Campaign began in Virginia in 1989 when a grandmother, Bonnie W. Finney, tied a blue ribbon to the antenna of her van “to make people wonder.” The story she told to inquisitive community members was a tragic story about the abuse of her grandchildren, which ultimately led to the brutal death of her grandson.
