To Those Who Took The Missing
To Those Who Took The Missing,
Christmas time, a season of giving for most, feels more like a season of grieving for the families of the missing. Some of these families will be hanging stockings or ornaments on a tree as a reminder of their missing loved one. These are sad reminders of what has been stolen from them.
What are you hanging on your tree? What gifts are you giving your loved ones?
The burden of what you know and what you have done can weigh even more heavily at this time of the year, despite your best efforts to put it out of your mind. Please, don’t let another Christmas season pass without giving these grieving families what they truly want for Christmas; Answers. They are yours to give.
A person once in the same circumstans as you is quoted as saying, ” I came in. I confessed. I was free.” The only way to possibly relieve this burden is to give your confession.
Today is the day to speak the truth. It’s time to go in and talk.
If you have any information about missing people in the province, give yourself some peace this Christmas season by anonymously unburdening yourself. You can do this by calling 1-800-222-8477. We won’t ask for your name and you won’t have to go to court.
