 A message from Magi Bish:

Dear Friends,

It is that time of year again... The month of May is when we remember the missing children and those who are missing them.

This year's Massachusetts Missing Children's Day is Wednesday, May 29th, 11:00 to 1:00 at the State House in the Grand Stairway. Our theme this year is "Faith and Fortitude." We would have never sustained this journey without our faith and the courage 
and fortitude to wake each day. On Wednesday we will once again hug each other and share our stories, our grief, and the courage and fortitude. Hope is what we wrap our prayers around. This past week we all experienced hope, that after 10 long years. Families were reunited. We will celebrate their joy and pray for their strength. I hope to see you all there. Please share this e-mail with any one I may have missed. All are welcome. If you know anyone who has a missing child please let them know we welcome them. Please bring a story, a poem, to share.

 Magi
