April is....

April is:

National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Foster2Forever has a great blog post about educating and being an advocate for children

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Activities and information for the 2011 year

National Autism Awareness Month

Activities and information

There are reasons months highlight different issues.  They promote awareness and hopefully enlightens the general public to misconceptions and truths.  I hope that all of my readers and the random ones that come by have some time to identify what their passions are (even if it's not highlighted in this month) and work to get information and education out to more people.  As we start April (and I'm not a fan of April Fool's jokes) I wanted to point out three of the themes that this month brings awareness to.
