Day 107: Tried To Help Find Missing Children

As my wife and I took our daughter for a walk yesterday, I saw a "Missing" poster on the ground. It was a picture of a young girl who had been missing for over 2 weeks. It really affected me because I started thinking about my daughter, and the fact that I would probably lose my mind if she was ever taken from me. I couldn't imagine having to go through the pain of having my daughter kidnapped or even worse outcomes that I would rather not think about/type. Over 2,000 children are reported missing every single day here in the United States, which is a staggering number to think about. I would hope that everyone around me, and even strangers would do whatever it takes to ensure that my daughter was returned to me safely. So today, for my random act of kindness, I am going to use this forum to try to spread the word on missing children here in Illinois. Please visit the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and see if you recognize any faces, share the link on your Facebook and Twitter, and try to do what you can to see that these children make it home safely. Social media can play a huge role in helping others, so let's see what we can do!
