I hear on the nightly news, almost every evening, that a young child has gone missing. The mothers cry and plead with the unknown abductor to bring their child back home safe.
Children go missing, it seems, on a daily basis. Then they are discovered dead a few days or later. Teams of rescue searchers comb the area where the child was last seen. This scene is almost a nightly event on the evening news. The parents should be blamed for not watching their children.
Let me tell a story of what had just happened in the Supermarket.Thank goodness I might have saved a child from being abducted. It is hard to believe that a young mother was annoyed at me because I warned her to watch her young child who was walking further and further away from her. Does anyone really believe that a crowded Supermarket is a safe place to be for a child?
I was pushing my shopping cart near the milk section Publix Supermarket. It crowded. People were just getting home from work and picking up something to eat for dinner.
I was about to turn to the right, when I noticed a young mother standing in front of me and looking at the shelf. In her arm was a young child of about eight months. Clinging to her dress was a little girl who looked to be about four years of age.Ãƒ’š In front of me, looking at the candy shelf, was her little boy of about three. He was walking slowly down the aisle alone, and soon the customers were in front of him. He was almost impossible to see at this point.
I feared the worse. I walked over to this young mother, who was looking the other say, to watch her child! She gave me a ‘mind your own business’ look and looked in the direction of her son.
She took her little finger and motioned for him to come back. He smiled and shook his head no and walked even further away in the opposite direction from where she was standing and almost out of sight.
Once again, I told her nicely to watch the child and that anyone can pick him up and walk out of the store with him. She gave me this “mind your own business” look and motioned to him, to come over to her. She never thought of walking towards him. He shook his head NO! as little children often do when they think they are being cute.
I had to walk away. I was frightened for the child. I was angry at the stupid young mother, who had the children clinging all over her and food in her hands. You would have thought that she would have least placed them in a shopping cart!
I finished shopping and was waiting in the check-out line!. I saw the mother standing and ready to pay. She had her baby in her arm, money in her hands and the little girl on her side. Once again her little boy was no where to be seen. She looked at me, and sent her little girl to find him and stay with him. That was not very clever. Would you agree?
Now some pervert could have easily abducted the two children instead of only the one.
