A little girl named Sandra Cantu disappeared about a week ago from her home, not 50 miles from where I live. Yesterday they found her body, stuffed in a suitcase and dumped in an irrigation pond.
I knew that if they hadn't found her within 48 hours, she would most likely not be found alive.
Every day the newscasts out here started out with clips of the people gathered around her home, praying for her safe return and begging the kidnapper to bring her home. Her fliers were posted all over my "neighborhood" in hopes that she would be found.
Of course I never prayed about it. I never said anything about it to anyone else, for fear of having to keep my trap shut about the harsh realities fo the situation.
When things like this happen, and you're waiting for the outcome, what do you do? What do you say?
