Lost Years

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

We cannot begin to imagine what it must be like for this girl. I dread to think about what horrors she has gone through over the eighteen years that she has been held captive.

I don’t know what family she has, but they must be experiencing a mixture of very powerful emotions as I am sure that they must have given up any hope of ever seeing her alive again.

For parents that still have a child missing after a long time this story is probably a beacon of hope in their terrible darkness. What it is like to have your child taken away from you is something that we cannot really understand and, if we are honest, none of us want to understand.

Let us hope that those who are responsible for taking away so many years of this girls’ life are brought to justice and that the punishment is as painful for them as it was for her.

I will ring you all but we have the Holland part of the tour sorted. If your having trouble finding a place their are a bunch of Amsterdam hostels on this page. Greg, Joan and me are staying in Hostel Annemarie.

Book early guys this time everyone is sorting out their own accomdation, do not expect me to do it. I don’t want to take the responsibility, the group just too big I won’t have any fun at all.
