A sign reading "A child is born every 7 seconds... and every 10 seconds a child is abused. It shouldn't hurt to be a child," stands in the DeKalb County Courthouse on a blue wooden silhouette of a child. About 60 people gathered Thursday, April 24, 2014, for "Hands Around the Courthouse" to bring awareness to child abuse. April is Child Abuse Awareness month and the Family Service Agency, Safe Passage, and the Children's Advocacy Center of DeKalb County hosted the event.
