I was going to post about my latest project but it seemed so inconsequential compared to a situation that’s been going on locally for four days. On Tuesday a man entered a school bus in an attempt to kidnap some children. When the bus driver tried to stop him, the kidnapper shot and killed him. A little boy, six years old, fainted and the kidnapper took him off the bus and entered his underground storm shelter with him. The news has reported the child has Asperger’s and ADHD. Can you imagine how frightened and scared this little boy is? His name is Ethan and I would ask that you send up a special prayer for his safe return to his family. The parents have been able to send him his medication and some coloring books and the authorities are speaking with the kidnapper and Ethan through a PVC pipe in the ground. Some people are leaving their porch lights on until Ethan is returned to his family.
No one knows what the motive is for the kidnapping or shooting. Please keep this family and little Ethan in your prayers.
