Well told. I well remember the day Samantha was abducted. I remember watching her father’s pleas on the news at night, with my then 10 year-old daughter. I watched the news. I read the articles. I’ve seen the photo of Samantha and the newspaper and the eyelids. Somehow the detail of Keyes' own daughter sleeping in a room a few feet from where he left Samantha’s corpse, to party it up on a cruise ship while her family fell to pieces from the not knowing where THEIR little girl was, escaped me. I dont know what has to go wrong in a father’s mind to do what Israel Keyes did to Samantha Koenig, but I will pray for the child of that monster tonight.

I hope she is okay.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
