Remembering a lost child

A year ago today, Tori Stafford disappeared from her school in nearby Woodstock and was never seen alive again. Her body was found last July, and two suspects are slowly working their way through the justice system.

Eventually, some semblance of justice will be delivered and the monsters responsible for her murder will become rent-free guests of the Canadian penal system. But an 8-year-old girl will forever be lost, and no amount of so-called justice will ever reverse this inconceivable reality.

If you've got kids nearby, hold them a little tighter.

So sad that such a wonderful life is ended too soon.

Today my 4 year old daughter told me they talked about strangers in school...I think it was because of today. It's my year on my birthday I was searching all over for a missing child...we thought we'd find was too close to home. My heart goes out to the family today.

I will say a prayer for her parents tonight.

Justice will help, but it can never bring her back and it cannot heal the pain. I wish I could give her family hugs.
