Finding Our Sons

So many blog posts and articles have already been written about three teenagers who were snatched off the street on their way home from school in Israel last week. 

My goal isn't to repeat what has already been said but to enlighten those who are in the dark. For some reason, International Media has chosen to keep quiet about this atrocious act, as if it didn't happen at all. Is it because it wasn't in their own backyard or perhaps because we are of a different religion, nationality, and thousands of miles away? The truth is, they could be anyone of your sons, brothers or friends. They are just regular kids minding their own business who were suddenly, unwittingly and savagely thrust into a world of terror, with their family and friends suffering right along with them.

It seems like every man, woman and child in Israel is concerned about these boys to the point of obsession. It would be nice if others cared. We are all human beings, are we not?

Here is a bit about each of these kids who are now political pawns at the mercy of ruthless terrorists. If they remind you of your own kids, or of the boy next door, that is because they are just the same. Just kids! 

If you want to help bring these young men back to their family and friends, please contact your government to take action. 

Help them to be able to sleep in a warm, soft bed tonight instead of in a cold and dark dungeon.

Last but not least, please pray for their safe return and for the safety of all the soldiers trying to free them and rid the world of evil. They may be far away, but the evil lurks in every corridor of the world.
