Locals focus on child abuse prevention

April 1, 2014

This morning, a team Emerson Family Center Coordinator Elmarie Brooks will hang blue ribbons across downtown Starkville.

If people wonder why they are there, it will fulfill the original intent of The Blue Ribbon Campaign, begun in Virginia in 1989 when Bonnie W. Finney tied a blue ribbon to her van’s antenna “to make people wonder,” according to the campaign’s press materials. She was trying to raise awareness of child abuse after her grandchildren had suffered from it and her grandson had died from it. She chose blue because she never wanted to forget her grandchildren’s bruises.
