    Oh yes, I heard about this, even JK Rowling (the author of the Harry Potter books) contributed to the cause..

    So, yeah, you call me sick all you want, I'm not the one ignoring the reality of the situation. I'd rather be a sick realist than an idealist who really needs to take off the rose-tinted glasses.
    I agree, if she weren't white or something I doubt this would become such a big deal.

    God forbid somebody actually cares about a small girls life..

    I can't see how colour comes into this but whatever.

    I hope shes found okay, as unlikely as its seeming at the moment...my thoughts are with the family who are suffering.

    I didn't; I said "English speaking". Unless, of course, this wasn't aimed at me.

    I aimed at en4neo because he said if the child was black no one would care.

    It's not like she's the only one missing in the world, there are tons of children missing and nobody's making such a big deal about them, they just show their pictures in amber alerts and all...what's up with that!?

    Don't any of you think that things like this could actually raise awareness of how many kids get kidnapped.

    Remember Damilola Taylor, Wiki link if you don't know

    His story raised the awareness of colored people being bullied and all that...

    Oh and yes, the press did write about it and *shock* he was black..
