Domestic Violence Awareness Earns Leadership Pin!

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and many Girl Scouts did their part to help with an annual candlelight service. Junior Girl Scout Troop 333 and other Girl Scouts made purple ribbons to earn their Leadership Pin that were passed out at a vigil the 20th of this month at Fort Decatur to commemorate victims of domestic violence as well as rejoice the lives of survivors. The girls also painted river rocks purple with words of encouragement on them for victims to hold in their hands while testifying in court.
