A stuffed animal of Grover from Sesame Street sits in front of blue and silver pinwheels at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo.
Staff Sgt. Alexandra M. Longfellow, 509th Bomb Wing Public Affairs photojournalist, received Grover from a police officer on the night she was taken out of an abusive home.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
and the pinwheel is a symbol for
healthy starts for all children.
