What in the world is going on? Too many little children of late are turning up missing and then discovered dead or perhaps never found again! Just today, the awful discovery and confirmed identification of the little girl in Florida is just so painful. It is so painful to hear, that yet another goes; fallen to an adult kidnapper! It is unreal.
Why does it seem that there is no reverence for the lives of people? What has happened to the innocence of life? Where are those days when people in general sat around and talked to each other? It would be a spectacular thing to return to those times. All is not lost, right?
Perhaps if we could get more people into churches or really paying it forward to next guy. How about even just the passing smile given to the person next to you on public transportation, or holding the door for the little old lady. How about fighting for those teens in the inner city of Chicago?
Today I heard Diena Thompson the mother of the little seven year old girl who was kidnapped, and now murdered take a stance. It was hard and painful to listen to the utter anguish of her pleas to bring her daughter home in the days prior to today. Now that the positive identification has been made, this mother has said they will find you and get you. She also told the person that they had better watch out! Watch out we’re coming we’re going to get you! I am glad that she is now angry-she has more than a right to be angry. Gosh I’m angry too!
Diena Thompson also stated that once the police do catch this sick predator, she hopes that the person or persons would be strung up! I agree.
What in the world is going on? What is also taking place in Florida? Are predator laws too lax there? But more full-circle comes the struggle for young adults and teens . They already have angst. They already may be feeling like rebelling. Whatever the reasoning behind this struggle, parents need to continue to be parents no matter what the age. We need to have eyes in back of our heads, we cannot leave tiny babes for one minute, and we need to get to know our teens and their friends. We as parents need to keep vigil no matter what!
Just my thoughts, just my opinions, and always in a conversationaltone.
