The Whispers Get Louder

Waking up from my sleep. I step outside to check the
mail. I get a postcard of a missing child...the trend 
seems to never fail.

appalled. "Breaking news- child abducted at a busy 
shopping mall!"

They found a missing child dead, "Gone too soon," is

    This is a powerful and touching tribute to missing children. Kudos to you for shedding some more light on this troubling and sick problem that never goes away. I feel for the parents so much....but this is nothing compared to the horrors that the children themselves go through~Chris
