It is Christmas Eve. It is a time when most of us are happy and enjoying being with family and friends and the ones we love. For Sage Smith's family, this must be the most heartbreaking Christmas that could be ever imagined.
Today, my thoughts move away from my own sadness over my father's end of life. We all expect this time to come for our parents, but it is never easy. But I think of the helplessness and hopelessness of Sage's family not even knowing if their child is even alive let alone the catastrophic very real possibility that they will never see her again.
In our joy of the season today, please remember Sage and her family and please say a little prayer for her safe return and that her family find some solice and comfort in their profound agony of loss.
