While my first graders were singing in their concert about saving the earth, a ripple went through the audience that the little boy that was kidnapped from my school last week was found and at home with his parents. Five days after he was taken, he is now home where he is supposed to be.
I don’t know how to describe the cloud that has been lifted from our school and community. It is overwhelming and amazing. As a little girl in my class said, “I have tears of joy in my heart thinking about him!”
I’m a bit of a pessimist (I prefer “realist”) but this day is always going to remind me of things turning out okay, even if they seem so far away at the time.
Thanks to all of you around the world that said a prayer for him. I know it made a difference.
Here is a link from one of the local papers if you want to read about it further:
