Andrew Brewer, 4, watches as supporters for Child Abuse Prevention Month pray for abused children at the Warren County Courthouse Thursday evening during a candlelight vigil. Andrew, who attended the event with his mother, Melissa Hearn, was one of more than 100 people who walked, or were strolled, from City Hall to the courthouse. “The candles are lit in hopes that an abused or neglected child will find a safe, secure and nurturing home,” said Child Abuse Prevention Center Director Shaheena Haque. She said 318 cases of child abuse were reported locally last year. (The Vicksburg Post/C. TODD SHERMAN)
