I have a friend, who I consider close, who always has something smart to say and todays post, above all her other ones of late, made me think, and I want you to think too. “Don’t laugh at me….”
On another note, a fellow blogger posted this entry in her post and I’ve copied & pasted it directly here in hope of passing it on.
I just got an email from a family associate about the daughter of someone they know. There is a local girl MISSING. Please look at the picture below, read the text, copy it, paste it into your own blog… let’s use the power of the blogging community for good.
Thanks in advance to everyone who takes two minutes to look at this photo and read the story.
It might save a life and a family.
Official Story: WTOP WASHINGTON – There is no evidence of foul play in the disappearance of two teenage girls missing since Jan. 19, Montgomery County Police say.
Police are looking for Rachel Samantha Smith, 16, of the 14000 block of Platinum Drive in Potomac, and Rachel Crites, 18, of the 600 block of Gate Stone Drive in Gaithersburg.
However, police are concerned about the mental state of Smith and Crites. Police and family members say they want the girls to know the concerns or problems they may be facing can be resolved.
An entry from Crites’ diary has her family particularly concerned, WRC-TV (Channel 4) reported Tuesday.
The entry read: “Wherever I end up laying, whether buried or cremated, I want to stay with my true love, buried next to her. This is my choice. I’m sorry.”
Detectives believe the girls may have traveled to Charleston, W.Va. on Jan. 19, but do not know if they are still in that area.
The girls were last seen on Jan. 19 before leaving to see a movie in Georgetown.
Smith is 5 feet 1 inches tall and weighs about 118 pounds. She has green eyes, and medium-length brown hair.
Police say she might be driving a dark blue 1997 Subaru Outback station wagon with Maryland license plate MBJ-485.
Rachel Crites is 5 feet 4 inches tall, and weighs about 110 pounds. She has brown eyes and brown medium-length hair.
