For a Parent, it should never be
one of THEM times

As always… well, most days.. I looked at our stats.

Today I came across something that I didn’t recognize, and I came very close to shutting the computer down right then and there.

It was just a feeling that part of me wishes I would have heeded… (Jacob) However, THAT is not the man that is sitting here.

My mind has already seen Frank when we were little boys, our Father, our GrandMother, and her two sisters who are our Aunts… in flash-backs probably fifty times already, since looking up the post I didn’t recognize… and I have Thanked Our Dear Mighty GOD already for Our Father, Our GrandMother, and Our Aunts. (Jacob)

From the time we were little boys, if Our Father was not with us, Our GrandMother and her older and younger Sisters, who are Our Aunts, would NOT let us be around any older boys or men by ourselves, and that includes our uncles on that side of the family, except for Uncle Frank who was Our Aunt Ida’s husband.  This is Our UnCivilized side. (Jacob)

You might wonder why I included the last paragraph in this, while it should be quiet obvious, I don’t mind enlightening everyone, since so many want to keep this a dark secret.

A major percentage of the Children we grew up with were victims of sexual abuse.  I hope no one of you jump to the conclusion that I have no proof of this fact.  In 1969, Vincent De Francis published the results of his study of sexual abuse of children, and in it he stated that the findings strongly point to the probability of an enormous national incidence many times larger than the reported incidence of physical abuse of children.  I found this in “Child Protection History In America” from the ABA.

At this time I will say that the numbers that are listed say that in 1990, 27% of the abused Children was physically abused, which would mean that between 50 – 75% of the abused Children was sexually abused. HOWEVER, I am more than glad to point out that none of these numbers can be trusted, since these state that about 5 Children die per day due to abuse, although that number is above 10, and most probably as high as 13, and most probably 15 Children a day die from abuse. *Government Accountability Office

It’s One Of THEM Times

Notorious Houston serial killer up for parole

A mother and father from Pasadena drove to an office building in Angleton Thursday for a closed-door parole hearing on one of Houston’s most notorious killers.

Their son, a 13 year-old boy named Stanton Dreymala, may not be remembered by many people in the Houston area, but what happened to him is seared in the collective memory of a generation of Houstonians. He was one of at least 28 boys and young men lured to a horrifying death in what became known as the Houston mass murders.  “He was just a normal 13 year-old,” said his mother, Elaine Dreymala.  “He went to school, he rode his bike, he mowed lawns for his spending money.”

Between 1971 and 1973, a man named Dean Corrl recruited two teenaged accomplices – David Brooks and Elmer Wayne Henley – to entice other youngsters to his homes, where they were drugged, raped and sexually tortured – sometimes for days – before they were murdered.  Some of the terrified victims were forced to write notes telling their mothers they were leaving town shortly before they were killed.

The Last Kid on the Block

Texas Monthly magazine – April 1976

Elmer Wayne Henley Jr. received six life sentences in 1974, suffice it to say he’ll likely never be released from prison.

Per the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Henley is currently incarcerated in the Mark W. Michael Unit in Tennessee Colony, Texas.

Henley was most recently denied parole in 2015 and will be eligible for his next parole review in 2025.

TIPS FOR PARENTS: PREVENTING ABDUCTION

Teaching children about abduction safety is important, but the ultimate responsibility lies with trusted adults.  Use the tips below to help you learn more about abduction and how to better protect your child.

LEARN THE FACTS

Many abduction attempts:

  • Involve a suspect driving a vehicle.
  • Occur when the child is traveling to or away from school.
  • Occur between 2 p.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Involve girls and children between the ages of 10 – 14.

The top five methods used during abduction attempts are:

  • Offering a ride.
  • Offering candy or sweets.
  • Asking questions.
  • Offering money.
  • Offering, looking for or showing an animal.

TAKE ACTION

  • Know the routes your children take, especially to and from school.  Practice walking the routes with them so you can point out places they should avoid or where they can go for help.
  • Talk to your child’s school or day care facility about its pickup policy.  Be clear that no one should pick up your child without your permission.  Ask to be contacted immediately if someone else tries to pick up your child.
  • Use role-playing scenarios to help children learn how to recognize and respond to risky situations.  For example, have children practice yelling, kicking, pulling away or otherwise attracting attention when grabbed or approached by someone they do not know.
  • Teach your child about the methods would be abductors use. Have your child practice responding to the tricks by saying “no,” walking away and telling a trusted adult immediately.
  • Prepare children to act when you are not with them.  They should know their full names, home addresses and telephone numbers, and how to dial 911.
  • Keep a child identification kit, which includes a recent color photo of your child and descriptive details such as age, height and weight.  For more information about creating a kit visit www.missingkids.com/ChildID

If your child is missing, contact your local law-enforcement agency immediately.  Then make a report to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® at 1-800-THE-LOST® (1-800-843-5678)

NATIONAL MISSING CHILDREN’S DAY

New “Forget-Me-Not” stamp

I just received this email, and want to share it with Our Circle.  Due to the date, I felt this should be shared immediately, so all of you could take advantage of the release of this beautiful stamp.

Together We Can Help Stamp Out Missing Child Cases

Dear Friend,

National Missing Children’s Day — May 25 — is taking on added meaning this year thanks to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s long-standing partners, Valassis and the U.S. Postal Service.

They’re helping us get the word out about our commitment to reunite missing children with their families by issuing a new “Forget-Me-Not” stamp featuring the phrase “Help Find Missing Children.”

Designed by Ethel Kessler, this striking stamp features a photograph by Harald Biebel showing a small bouquet of forget-me-nots with a lone flower off to the side to represent the child who has been separated from their loved ones and needs our help.

This special stamp will be issued on May 18 as part of the U.S. Postal Service’s Forever series which provides First-Class postage in perpetuity. And it reminds us that we will never forget and never stop searching for any missing child.

Sadly, there are new cases of missing children every day. These children and their families are counting on us. And we know the support and hope we provide simply wouldn’t be possible without friends like you who contribute so generously to our cause.

I urge you to join me in applauding the U.S. Postal Service for their ongoing efforts to help us assist law enforcement in searching for missing children. I also hope you will accept my deepest gratitude for your personal commitment to reuniting missing children with their families.

Sincerely,
Robert Lowery, Jr.
Vice President, Missing Children Division
