Researchers found there were 12,232 reports of abuse or neglect between July 1, 2008, and June 30, 2009 – about 2,200 more than during the same time span from 2004 to 2005.

By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die.
