Child Abuse Like 1 Twitter Date Night With Books Follow June 7, 2017, 9:19 p.m. in Opinion Views: 560 Like us on facebook I have started writing short stories and snippets for Child Abuse and Animal Abuse to spread awareness. This is the first story I have written. Social Networking websites, personal blogs and websites like MyTrendingStories are the perfect platform where you can voice out your thoughts and try to make a difference in the society. Words hold power, greater than we can imagine. Keeping this belief in mind, I write on topics for their awareness so people know. Do you know? A report of child abuse is made every ten seconds. In one study, 80% of 21-year-olds who reported childhood abuse met the criteria for at least one psychological disorder. 1 out of 3 girls and 1 out of 5 boys will be sexually abused before they reach age 18. Let's do something to stop or atleast try to stop this horrible act. “Sarah! What happened?” Alina grabbed Sarah’s wrist and looked at her with eyes filled with concern. Sarah’s wrist was blue and swollen to a frightful size. Sarah winced but didn’t show the pain. After all, she was used to hiding her pain. One of the ‘perks’ of getting beaten every other night by her drunk uncle. “It’s nothing, Alina. Let go of my hand.” “‘Nothing’? You’ve got to be kidding me, you actually expect me to believe that?” “I told you it’s nothing. I just slipped in the bathroom and twisted my wrist badly. That’s all.” Oh how she wished if it were that simple. Sarah could sense that Alina wasn’t convinced but thankfully, she didn’t press her for details. Sarah walked away, covering her wrists with her sleeves that had somehow moved up her arm. She heaved a sigh of relief. The bruise was nothing compared to what she had hidden so perfectly under her uniform. Holding her bag tightly, she started walking towards her house, praying she wouldn’t find her uncle inside. Oh how she wished her uncle to disappear. Even if it was for a day.
