Candlelight vigil to honor victims of crime, child abuse

A reminder - the annual candlelight vigil honoring victims of crime and child abuse is tomorrow (Thursday) at 6 p.m. in the Liberty Center at City Hall. This annual vigil honors victims of crime, their families and those who serve them. Liberty County District Attorney Logan Pickett said the special event also alerts the public to the realities of such crime while expressing hope for a less violent future. This local observance is part of a National Crime Victims’ Rights Week scheduled for April 7-13. This year’s national theme is “Honoring our Past - Creating Hope for the Future”. The annual vigil will also commemorate April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. D.A. Pickett said it is hoped that this vigil will impress upon everyone that all children are entitled to be loved, cared for, nurtured and secure. He emphasized that preventing child abuse is everyone’s responsibility. Again, Liberty County District Attorney Logan Pickett and County Attorney Matthew Poston invite anyone within the sound of our voice to join those from across America in commemorating National Crime Victim’s Rights Week and Child Abuse Prevention Month. That annual local candlelight vigil is tomorrow at 6 p.m. in the Liberty Center at City Hall. As part of the event, Bridgehaven Children’s Advocacy Center will have a large blue ribbon for people to sign and write inspirational messages. The ribbons will stay on display for the month of April.  For information on the Candlelight Vigil, call Victim Assistance Coordinator Tabitha Dyson, with the Liberty County District Attorney’s Office, at 936-336-4609.
