    Child Watch® Column: "Jasmine Lynn: No Hiding Place From Gun Violence"
    Nineteen-year-old Jasmine Lynn arrived at Atlanta's Spelman College, my alma mater, as a smart, dedicated student full of promise. She was a psychology major with a 3.8 grade point average who wanted to be a lawyer. Her friends knew her as "a beautiful, free spirited ball of energy [who] always had a smile on her face."

    Child Watch® Column: "Shooting Deaths of Children Rose for Second Straight Year"
    I'm deeply disturbed that after a decade of decline, the number of firearm deaths among children and youths has increased for the second year in a row. Our 2009 "Protect Children, Not Guns" report released in September reveals that almost nine children and teens die from gunfire every day—one child death every two hours and 45 minutes.

    Child Watch® Column: "National Child Abuse Prevention Month"
    April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month—a good time for us to look at the child abuse and neglect crisis in America. The statistics are shocking: A child is abused or neglected every 40 seconds. During 2007, an estimated 794,000 children were determined to be victims of child abuse or neglect, and almost 3.2 million children were subjects of abuse or neglect investigations.
