The Face of a Child

Written by Jacqueline Ennis

Have you looked intorepparttar face of a child?

The tragic occurrence surrounding little Shasta Groene and her family is indescribable!

What this child may have witnessed is not something any one and most assuredly a child of any age should have to witness.

This is not so much an article about what occurred but about what DIDN'T occur.

Shasta and registered sex offender in two states. Joseph Duncan enters a gas station convenient store along with 5 other people.

Apparently, there is such a mental and emotional grip on 8 year old Shasta Groene that she is released to freely walk aboutrepparttar 148942 store as alleged kidnapper Duncan calmly reads a paper.

It appears she was instructed before hand, not to speak or draw attention to herself. At one point she even drastically avoids bumping into an female shopper.

As she appears to look intorepparttar 148943 faces of other customers with folded arms she seem to scream out for HELP, in hope that someone will recognize her.

Sadly she goes unnoticed by everyone and all of her hopes are dashed as she and Duncan quietly leaverepparttar 148944 store and Shasta walks towardsrepparttar 148945 Jeep Cherokee, opensrepparttar 148946 door and climbs intorepparttar 148947 passenger seat with no visible instructions from Duncan her alleged kidnapper.

I am not looking to bring guilt uponrepparttar 148948 patrons orrepparttar 148949 employees who were inrepparttar 148950 store that Friday, for I must shamefully admit that I, myself likely would not have noticed Shasta's silent cries as well.

So busy are we with our lives and problems that we can not recognizesrepparttar 148951 silent cry of an 8 year old child!

Again I ask...

Have you looked intorepparttar 148952 face of a child?
