Missing Amber


I see her face everyday... and yet, no one has seen her in a year.  
I look for her when I'm driving through town. 
I search and wonder about her while I'm running. 
I pray for her daily.  
I've never met her but I miss her.  
My heart breaks for her family.
I'm talking about Amber Dubois. 
You may have seen her story on
 America's Most Wanted,
the National News,
or in People Magazine.
A year ago today, somebody took someone's little girl
right off the street.
A year ago today, somebody took one of our neighborhood girls
right off of the same street where I often run.
I didn't run that morning
but I sometimes wonder if I would have seen something
if I had.
So close to home.
Her missing fliers are posted on almost every pole in the neighborhood,
keeping her in our mind's eye
and in our hearts.
Dear God, please perform a miracle and bring Amber home safely 
to her parents, family, and friends.

Wow, Sara. I think about her a lot too. I guess I never realized how many other people do as well, esp. in her own neighborhood. I wish they could find some smidgen of truth so everyone could know what in the world happened to her. =(
