Pinwheels -- over one thousand of them -- are lining the lawn of the state Capitol to bring awareness to a sensitive issue in Hawaii.

The shiny blue and white pinwheels were installed by the Girl Scouts of Hawaii to bring attention to child abuse and neglect prevention in the islands.

The toys were installed as a part of the 11th annual Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii Pinwheels for Prevention event. The scouts hope the pinwheels will serve as a symbol of hope, and represent the happiness of children. 

The pinwheels will remain on the Capitol lawn for the month of April.
