The moon shines on the missing

I went out walking under the stars tonight, and I thought about Melissa, and all the other missing children of the world.
I wonder where you are. I wonder what you are doing. Are you cold, are you hungry, are you scared? Or, are you warm, are you well fed, and are you happy? But most of all I wonder, are you alive?
The moon is a symbol of hope to me. I can look up at it, and know that you can see it too. The sun and the moon are the two things all mankind share.
But the moon is escpecially touching. The moon is the light in a dark place. Just as the hope of finding you, is the light in dark circumstances.
Where ever you are in this world, we can look up at the moon, and know that those we love, those we miss, can see it too.
I hope some day you will all be found, Melissa McGuinn, Kyron Horman, Isabel Celis, Katherine Phillips, Ayla Reynolds. Until the day we have our answer to your fate, I will look up at the moon, and pray for you. Where ever you are in the world, I know you can see that bright light in the night, and I believe that light, will one day lead you home.

  1. Fantastic post! Often here at the Homeless Shelter we have mother/daughter clients that cause concern. Also as a former Passport Specialist I had several I reported, one was a missing child, four years older. I will continue to report if the situation does not look right. Blessing on these parents of missing children. I do not know how they survive. Mary W. Black, Flagstaff, AZ
