Princeton holds15th Annual Children's Memorial Flag Day


Friday was Children's Memorial Flag Day and Mercer County celebrated in front of Princeton's Courthouse.

It is part of April's Child Abuse Prevention Month and the 15th annual nationwide celebration of children. The flag raising remembered the loss of children to abuse, overdose and domestic violence.

"If you see a child who is in an abusive situation, then yes people need to step up and make a call. But even before it reaches that point, there's support and things the community can do to help those families," said Beth Sizemore of Child Law Services.

The flag ceremony pointed forward to prevention of child abuse in the future.
