I was so hoping this was not true. Yesterday, in our news was a report about a child three to five years of age, that was found dead on the beach in Galveston, Texas. I thought, “How sad for the family”. But, so far no one has reported a missing child. So far this poor little boy has no parents to mourn him. If the parents can’t be found, his small body will not be buried for a long time, and will become the city of Galveston’s responsibility. How can this be? This was a small little boy, and if someone doesn’t claim him, he will end up being call a John Doe. How can someone not notice their child is missing? Generally, I never wish ill on anyone, but unless the parents are hurt and unconscious, I hope that if or when the authorities catch up to them they throw the preverbal book at them. There is no excuse that can explain why such a thing has happened to this or any child.
