Many missing people are on my mind this week.
There was an incident up at Lake of the Woods several weeks ago…three teenage boys on a fishing trip drowned…the third boy has not been found. They want to find his body before the ice sets in…but they are not hopeful. ( Your older child takes off happy as a lark on a fishing trip with friends.)
There was a 18 year old girl from Starbuck that was missing earlier this week… she was found in a cornfield dead. (Your College Student disappears.)
Dennis Bank’s granddaughter is missing up in Bemidji, I heard Dog the Bounty Hunter was called in to help with the search. ( Your older daughter is missing.)
A person of interest in being questioned in the October 22, 1989 disappearance of Jacob Wetterling. Twenty six years those parents have been waiting for some news. I cannot begin to understand the depth of their sorrow for all these years. ( Your son was abducted while riding his bike with two other young boys near your home.)
Something else is missing.
Parents must be missing from the schools. Why in the world do we need Police Officers in the schools to handle “situations” with our children. Call the parents, have the kid expelled or require one parent to attend school with the child….bet that ruling would get some parents attention.
What am I missing?
I guess I am ready for a news break again…too depressing.
