September 6, 2016, Prescott-
Once upon a time, in St. Cloud, a trio of boys went on an errand.
An unsettled, angry man went on an errand of his own.
Two boys made it home that night.
So did the man,
but not before he had made sure that the third boy
would only go home to his Lord.
Once upon a time, in Boulder, a little girl looked forward
to her seventh Christmas.
Someone, still unknown to us,
had other ideas.
She now spends her Christmases, and all her days,
at the right hand of her Lord.
Once upon a time, in Salt Lake City,
a young woman was imprisoned,
in plain sight.
Sharp-eyed people noted her burden,
and freed her.
Now, she has a husband who loves her dearly.
In these days, how many remain in “prison”,
or are interred, with no clue in the public mind,
as to “whodunnit”?
RIP, Jacob Wetterling.
RIP, JonBenet Ramsey.
Elizabeth, glad you’re still among us.
