    A Poem That Gives You Goosebumps...

    A drunk man in an Oldsmobile

    They said had run the light

    That caused the six-car pileup

    On Highway 9 that night.

    When broken bodies lay about

    "And blood was everywhere,"

    "The sirens screamed out eulogies,"

    For death was in the air.

    "A mother, trapped inside her car,"

    Was heard above the noise;

    Her plaintive plea near split the air:

    "Oh, God, please spare my boys!"

    She fought to loose her pinned hands;

    "She struggled to get free,"

    But mangled metal held her fast

    In grim captivity.

    Her frightened eyes then focused

    "On where the back seat once had been,"

    But all she saw was broken glass and

    Two children's seats crushed in.

    Her twins were nowhere to be seen;

    "She did not hear them cry, "

    "And then she prayed they'd been thrown free, "

    "Oh, God, don't let them die! "

    Then firemen came and cut her loose, "

    "But when they searched the back, "

    "They found therein no little boys, "

    But the seat belts were intact.

    They thought the woman had gone mad

    "And was traveling alone, "

    "But when they turned to question her, "

    They discovered she was gone.

    Policemen saw her running wild

    And screaming above the noise

    "In beseeching supplication, "

    Please help me find my boys!

    They're four years old and wear blue shirts;

    "Their jeans are blue to match.""

    "One cop spoke up, ""They're in my car, "

    And they don't have a scratch.

    They said their daddy put them there

    "And gave them each a cone, "

    Then told them both to wait for Mom

    To come and take them home.

    "I've searched the area high and low, "

    But I can't find their dad.

    "He must have fled the scene, "

    "I guess, and that is very bad."

    "The mother hugged the twins and said, "

    "While wiping at a tear, "

    "He could not flee the scene, you see, "

    "For he's been dead a year."

    "The cop just looked confused and asked, "

    "Now, how can that be true? "

    "The boys said, ""Mommy, Daddy came "

    "And left a kiss for you."" "

    He told us not to worry

    "And that you would be all right, "

    And then he put us in this car with

    "The pretty, flashing light. "

    "We wanted him to stay with us, "

    "Because we miss him so, "

    "But Mommy, he just hugged us tight"

    And said he had to go.

    He said someday we'd understand

    "And told us not to fuss, "

    "And he said to tell you, Mommy, "

    "He's watching over us."

    The mother knew without a doubt

    "That what they spoke was true, "

    "For she recalled their dad's last words, " " I will watch over you."

    The firemen's notes could not explain

    "The twisted, mangled car, "

    And how the three of them escaped

    Without a single scar.

    "But on the cop's report was scribed, "

    "In print so very fine, "

    An angel walked the beat tonight on Highway 9.

    A MUST Read......

    A Must Read for All.....
    Who have children or grandchildren


    After tossing her books on the sofa, she decided to
    grab a snack and get on-line . She logged on under
    her screen name ByAngel213. She checked her
    Buddy List and saw GoTo123 was on.
    She sent him an instant message:

    Hi. I'm glad you are on! I thought someone was following me home today. It was really weird!

    LOL You watch too much TV. Why would someone be following you? Don't you live in a safe neighborhood?

    Of course I do. LOL I guess it was my imagination cuz' I didn't see anybody when I looked out.

    Unless you gave your name out on-line. You haven't done that have you?

    Of course not. I'm not stupid you know.

    Did you have a softball game after school today?

    Yes and we won!!

    That's great! Who did you play?

    We played the Hornets. LOL. Their uniforms are so gross! They look like bees. LOL

    What is your team called?

    We are the Canton Cats. We have tiger paws on our uniforms. They are really cool.

    Did you pitch?

    No I play second base. I got to go. My homework has
    to be don e before my parents get home. I don't want
    them mad at me. Bye!

    Catch you later. Bye

    Meanwhile...GoTo123 went to the member menu
    and began to search for her profile. When it came up,
    he highlighted it and printed it out. He took out a pen
    and began to write down what he knew about Angel
    so far.

    Her name: Shannon
    Birthday: Jan. 3, 1985
    Age: 13
    State where she lived: North Carolina

    Hobbies: softball, chorus, skating & going to the mall.
    Besides this information, he knew she lived in Canton
    because she had just told him. He knew she stayed by
    herself until 6:30 p.m. every afternoon until her parents
    came home from work. He knew she played softball on Thursday afternoons on the school team, and the team
    was named the Canton Cats.

    Her favorite number 7 was printed on her jersey.
    He knew she was in the eighth grade at the Canton
    Jr. High School. She had told him all this in the
    conversations they had on- line. He had enough
    information to find her now.

    Shannon didn't tell her parents about the incident on
    the way home from the ballpark that day. She didn't
    want them to make a scene & stop her from walking
    home from the softball games. Parents were always
    overreacting & hers were the worst. It made her wish
    she was not an only child. Maybe if she had brothers
    & sisters, her parents wouldn't be so overprotective.

    By Thursday, Shannon had forgotten about the footsteps
    following her. Her game was in full swing when suddenly
    she felt someone staring at her. It was then that the memory came back. She glanced up from her second base position to see a man watching her closely.

    He was leaning against the fence behind first base & he smiled when she looked at him. He didn't look scary and she quickly dismissed the sudden fear she had felt.

    After the game, he sat on a bleacher while she talked to the
    coach. She noticed his smile once again as she walked past
    him. He nodded & she smiled back. He noticed her name on
    the back of her shirt. He knew he had found her.

    Quietly, he walked a safe distance behind her. It was only a
    few blocks to Shannon 's home, & once he saw where she lived he quickly returned to the park to get his car .

    Now he had to wait. He decided to get a bite to eat until
    the time came to go to Shannon 's house. He drove to a
    fast food restaurant and sat there until time to make his move.

    Shannon was in her room later that evening when she
    heard voices in the living room.

    "Shannon, come here," her father called. He sounded upset
    & she could n't imagine why. She went into the room to see ! the man from the ballpark sitting on the sofa.

    "Sit down," her father began, "this man has just told us a most interesting story about you."

    Shannon sat back. How could he tell her parents anything?
    She had never seen him before today!

    "Do you know who I am, Shannon?" the man asked.

    "No," Shannon answered.

    "I am a police officer and your online friend, GoTo123."

    Shannon was stunned. "That's impossible! GoTo123 is a kid my age! He's 14. And he lives in Michigan !"

    The man smiled. "I know I told you all that! t, but it t wasn't true. You see, Shannon, there are people on-line who pretend to be kids; I was one of them. But while others do it to injure kids & hurt them, I belong to a group of parents who do it to protect kids from predators. I came here to find you to teach you how dangerous it is to talk to people on-line. You told me enough about yourself to make it easy for me to find you. You named the school you went to, the name of your ball team and the position you played. The number and name on your jersey just made finding you a breeze."

    Shannon was stunned. "You mean you don't live in Michigan?"

    He laughed. "No, I live in Raleigh. It made you feel safe to think I was so far away, didn't it?"

    She nodded.

    "I had a friend whose daughter was like you. Only she wasn't
    as lucky. The guy found her & murdered her while she was
    home alone. Kids are taught not to tell anyone when they are alone, yet they do it all the time on-line. The wrong people trick you into giving out information a little here and there on-line.
    Before you know it, you have told them enough for them to find you without even realizing you have done it. I hope you've learned a lesson from this and won't do it again. Tell others about this so they will be safe too?"

    "It's a promise!"

    That night Shannon and her Dad and Mom all knelt down
    together and thanked God for protecting Shannon from
    what could have been a tragic situation.


    Please send this to as many people as you can to teach them not to give any information about themselves

    This world we live in today is too dangerous to even give out
    your age, let alone anything else.

    Yeah - thanks, Kelly - I talk about this stuff to my eldest all the time but with the arrogance of youth, she thinks I worry too much. I will deffo make her read it - without any comment from me - so I hope it makes her think (and any other young person who reads it). If it saves just one kid, it's worth it, hey!

    I agree Isobel, There is far too many people out there praying on young girls.

    Lets hope this will open the kids eyes.
