Pinwheels for Prevention
Hundreds gathered at Navy Pier.
To mark the month, Prevent Child Abuse America (PCA) holds a national event where we gather with blue pinwheels in hand to honor those young victims and to pledge to prevent future victims. This year PCA held two national pinwheel events. The first was in New York City and the second was at Navy Pier in Chicago! After all, Prevent Child Abuse America was founded in Chicago in 1972.
I was invited to the Midwest pinwheel event where they gave me a truly lovely introduction that just about made me blush! We then heard from the PCA President and CEO Jim Hmurovich and then Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
I was able to speak with the Mayor and thank him for speaking up for children who need to be heard and helped.
Be the change!
Your Mrs. International
