It's been a while

I've had so much running through my brain as to what to post but well, it never got posted everything seemed a little insignificant in all that was going on in our small community.
On Dec 22nd a little girl was kidnapped from her home 15 minutes from here. Victoria received a text message early Wednesday that one of her friends little sisters was kidnapped, for the next 3 days all we heard were helicopters hovering overhead, everywhere we went we saw the helicopters, we saw police searching fields, we heard reports on the TV, we heard and read that it was a registered repeat sex offender who had kidnapped her. I remember sitting here Christmas Eve and thinking we should be listening to Christmas songs not the drone of helicoters overhead.
Christmas morning 3,000 - 4,000 volunteers from our community went out searching for her, the sheriff asked everyone to search their properties, instead of opening gifts right away Marc and Victoria were out searching our property and the woods next to us. At 4pm Christmas day Sarah's body was found on a dirt road on the Maryland/ Delaware border.

I truly think the whole community went into mourning for this little girl and her family.
What happened to her was truly horrific and evil, no person let alone a child should ever go through what she went through and no sex offender should ever be let out of prison to roam the streets seeking out his next innocent victim.
I urge each and every one of you to go here and sign this petition
Find out who the registered sex offenders are in your community and educate your children, the friendliest looking person could be some evil person lurking within the kindly exterior.
Sarah, you truly touched this community, you will never be forgotten. R.I.P sweet girl
