there is something about missing teenagers, college aged students, etc that has always affected me. i have a portion of my website dedicated to a few of them. it breaks my heart. i feel so much pain for all these families and these people who have just vanished without a trace. i never ever hope to feel that kind of mental and emotional anguish.
jeffrey ben was one of the guys on my website. his remains were found and positively identified a few days ago (after being missing for 5 years). i'll be taking him off my site shortly and sadly, replacing him with someone else. i just found out that project jason (a website run by a mom of a missing guy) has a blog. and i've linked them in my blog links to the left. i like to bring this any sort of attention that i can, because you never know what can happen. you never know if someone might read this and know something, or see something, or get involved in a way that helps. for me, just getting the word out there is my doing of doing something. it doesn't seem like much, but it seems like the only thing i can do.
