All of us secretly battle some dark secret behind closed doors. Be it depression, stress, anxiety, physical abuse or even a disease, when no one can see what they are, it makes people inconsiderate and difficult to help which is why some children across the USA were seen sporting a trend.  It was  that of a tiny heart on a child’s wrist.

The heart symbol on the wrist of a child was the brainchild of one mother who started the trend which soon became viral. It wasn’t just an important message conveyed through her son; it meant protecting the lives of many children.

Liz Petrone’s son suffered from anxiety and one day she posted on facebook a photo of her son’s wrist with the heart symbol drawn on it. Liz is a journalist and a mom of four who also runs her own website lizpetrone.com.
