Two Little Girls Need Our Help

My nights and days are tormented by the thought of these two little girls being abducted recently.  I keep racking my brain wondering what I can possibly do to help them from a distance.  A few minutes ago the thought flashed like fireworks through my head that I should post their pictures on my blog.  There is a $50,000 reward offered to anyone who can lead authorities to the girls.

We all have little girls in our families and in our neighborhoods.  We watch them innocently ride their bikes up and down the sidewalks and streets.  Nothing warms the heart more than a little girl's smile, and nothing pains the heart more than the thought of a little girl being taken away from her parents, being tortured, or worse.

These two little girls belong to all of us, because they are part of the American family.  Please keep your eyes on the lookout for them.  They could be anywhere, and they need our help.  We must pray, keep hope, and we must keep searching for them.

Dickey's Printing in Waterloo, Iowa, is selling T-shirts with the girls' faces and the tip-line number on the front.  The money raised will go toward the families and the search for Lyric and Elizabeth.  The shirts cost $15 for youth and adult sizes, $20 for adult sizes XXL-4X.  To order, call 319-234-1777, or email

"Childhood is the most beautiful of all life's seasons," and Elizabeth and Lyric have been wrongfully robbed of theirs.  Please, let us all keep searching for these sweet faces.  Thank you.
