AND WAKE ME WITH THE MORNING LIGHT... by Nicky Mann
Child Abuse T-shirt Project

What Is It?

The Child Abuse T-shirt Project is an offline traveling memorial for children who have died due to abuse. Please help! It's simple! Just follow the directions below.
 
1. Choose a child from the list of available children... or, if you know of another child who died from abuse, you can choose to memorialize him instead.
 
2. Notify me with who you have chosen. I will delete the name from the list, to prevent multiple people from choosing the same child.
 
3. Buy a plain white T-shirt in the size that the child would have worn when he died. (For instance, if you choose a child who died at age 2, buy a 2T shirt. For a baby, you might buy a onesie.)
 
4. With fabric marker or paint, write the child's name, age, and possibly circumstances of death on the front of the T-shirt. (For instance, "Timmy Jones, age 2. My father beat me to death.")
 
5. Decorate the rest of the T-shirt any way you want.
 
6. Mail the T-shirt to me (I will e-mail you my address when you contact me). It will probably fit in a manilla envelope and shouldn't take more than 3 or 4 stamps.
 
7. I will collect the T-shirts, and display them at various churches and social service agencies in my area, on a clothesline.
 
8. If you would be interested in displaying the T-shirts in your area, let me know, and I will schedule a time to mail the T-shirts to you. After displaying them at various places in your area, you can mail them to the next person on the list.
 
9. This project will be ongoing, and will hopefully grow as more people get involved!
 
The purpose of this project is to show how widespread the problem of abuse is, to make more people realize that impulsive violence on children can be fatal, and to convince others to get involved in working to prevent child abuse. Please help!
 

Why have a child abuse memorial?

A few people have asked me this question, even accusing me of having a morbid obsession with children who have died from abuse. As a person with Asperger's Syndrome, I am prone to getting "stuck" on certain topics. But this particular topic is important to me. I have many reasons for creating both an online Child Abuse Memorial page, and an offline Child Abuse Memorial T-shirt Project. Here are just a few reasons.

 

1. TO PAY RESPECT TO THE CHILDREN WHO HAVE DIED. Just as soldiers who died at war and people who died from AIDS have memorials to honor them, it is important to immortalize the memories of little children who might otherwise be forgotten. No matter what your beliefs are about death... whether you feel the children have gone to Heaven, will be reincarnated, are in an eternal dream, or have simply ceased to exist at all... it is important to read these children's names, to speak their names aloud, to hear their stories.

 

2. TO RAISE THE AWARENESS OF PARENTS. There are some people in this world who are just evil, or maybe so deranged from mental illness or drug use that they no longer know what they're doing. These are the people who deliberately torture children, premeditate violence towards them, or murder them in cold blood. These people deserve to be in prison, and the best thing that could happen is for their children to be taken from them and protected from them as early as possible.

But most parents who abuse their children love their children and don’t really want to hurt them.

I once knew a woman, a young single mother living in a neighborhood made up largely of young single mothers and young male drug dealers, who saw the teenaged mother next door to her come home drunk and start to punch and kick her two-year-old son. The woman became outraged at the teenager, shouted at her, grabbed the child and took him to his grandmother’s house, and later called DCFS on the teenager for child abuse. It horrified her to watch a mother abuse a child.

Yet this same woman routinely slapped her own two-year-old daughter in the head or the face and beat her with a hanger or a belt… because the toddler pooped in her diaper or cried at bedtime.

The woman loved her child. She wanted the best for her child. She truly believed this was the best way to discipline a child. It was how her mother had raised her and her siblings. It was how her friends and relatives were raising their children.

What if that woman could see how many two-year-olds have been beaten TO DEATH for pooping in their diapers or crying at bedtime?

 

3. TO RAISE AWARENESS OF OTHERS IN THE COMMUNITY.

I heard of a school teacher who had a 6-year-old student casually mention to her that her father often punched her and her 8-year-old brother in the face. The concerned teacher reported this to the school social worker, and the social worker talked to the child privately to try to find out exactly what was going on in her home, and what the school could do to help and protect the family. Hearing that the teacher had spoke to the social worker about the situation, a classroom aide became angry. The aide argued that this was “family business”, and that what went on at home should stay at home. She felt that because the child’s parents were from Mexico, where she said the hitting of children was culturally accepted, to accuse these parents of abuse would be ethnocentric. And when you got right down to it, the aide went on, the child had behavior problems and probably sometimes “needed” to be hit.

This classroom aide’s words are probably echoed by countless neighbors, relatives and acquaintances of parents who abuse their children. It’s probable that, in most cases of severe abuse, someone knew what was happening, and chose not to report it.

To be fair, reporting abuse can be sort of traumatizing to a person who leads a calm, average life. A person may be anxious about calling a child abuse hotline or emergency number because they may have never had reason to call one before. They may not know what to expect. They may fear they are overreacting. They may be reluctant to set into motion an abuse investigation. They may worry that the abusive parents will find out who reported them and get angry. If the abuser is a family member of the person, the person may worry about upsetting the rest of the family members.

But what if that person knew that the child in question could easily be dead from child abuse… and that they, personally, could prevent that from happening by trying to get help for the child and the family?

 

These are just a few of the reasons I think it’s important to have a memorial such as this. I hope, and pray, these projects will make a difference.
