I feel the pain and dispare of this loss of this lovely child. No child should have to live a short life of such pain. I am giving you my opinion of the severity of the no danger statement. No, we do not want to live a life in fear for our children. I myself have studied child abduction for 17 years, in hopes I can make a difference, Just preventing just one life being lost or child missing is worth it all.. First of all a predator does not wear a sign saying guard your children. They are usually loaners, with not much comaradery, they need to keep their wants and needs private for fear of retaliation from others. There is no such thing as let your guard down. The federal gov.has estimated there are over 2,000 abductions per day in the U.S.A.. We do not hear about all of them, only the local, sometimes. That would account for tens of thousand of predators if they only did this at 4 or 5 per year each. It is time to work out a plan for keeping an extra 2 or 3 sets of eyes on our children. Don't be afraid to carry legal protection to avert this horrible act, designate play area's with 2-3 adults on guard. keep the children together. If you ever need to become a part of something important, become a hood watch for the children. thank you. Monitor 67
