This is a video my daughter helped work on and it made me cry so I thought I’d share it here. There are a lot of suffering kids—and thus, suffering parents—out there. As you watch it, kids who are missing from your area will show up on the screen. Maybe you’ve seen one of them, or even know one of them.
There are a lot of reasons children go missing; abduction, drugs, sex trafficking. I recently sat next to Amanda Berry at a dinner for NCMEC (National Center for Missing and Exploited Children). You might have heard of Amanda. She was abducted in 2014 and confined with two other girls in the basement of a man’s house. She was tied to a radiator and became pregnant with his child.
She gave birth to the child and homeschooled her as best she could, never seeing the light of day and sometimes going days without food.
After 10 years Amanda escaped with her daughter and the other 2 girls.
Today her daughter, Jocelyn, is twelve and goes to public school.
We talk about badass women.
