He Made The Same Mistake Every One Of Us Would Have Made. And Now A Little Girl Is Gone.
Jamie DeWolf, storyteller, has a pretty personal one to share. It involves a child abduction and abuse case, but I urge you to listen all the way through. It's a hard listen, but an important one.
To keep informed on what is being done to protect children from abduction, please Like the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children on Facebook.
UPDATE: Jamie wrote the following on his facebook wall since we published this:
"Since the release of the story, I've talked to people who were on the search teams marching through the hills and reporters who interviewed the Wolf face to face, and heard parts of his sickening confession from his mouth. He was worse than you can imagine. Old neighbors have messaged me who still remember the little girl who was always walking by herself.
But more importantly, the 8 year old girl who escaped is named Midsi. 15 years later, she's grown up and now works for a missing children center and the Polly Klaas Foundation. Which is incredible. Someone posted this performance on her FB wall, and to be honest I was terrified it would be traumatizing to hear. She said, "I want to shake this man's hand...feeling blessed." Now I'm hoping to meet her all these years later in person. It's a heavy thing, but thank you to everyone for helping make that happen. Let's share this more, show it folks who haven't seen it, it matters."
