Very Sad Day

I heard on the news tonight that a young lady from our town was kidnapped while leaving work late Wednesday night, and was found dead today. Very tragic. They held a candlelight vigil at her place of work at 7pm tonight. We didn't go, didn't know the girl or family, but still my heart goes out to them.

Not much I can do to help this situation, but added an Amber Alert ticker to this blog to maybe help prevent further tragedies. We need something to alert the public when older teens and adults are abducted. In this situation, Amber alerts weren't done because the young lady was too old, she didn't fit the Amber alert parameters. I understand that there have to be protocols, guidelines, rules.. but sometimes those rules need to be put aside.

RIP Megan Holden.
