Dear Book Friends,
I usually don't write a lot outside of books, but earlier this week something happened in a community where I'm from. A 17 year-old honor student from Poway High School disappeared from the Rancho Bernardo Community Center. Someone is in custody right now on charges for rape and murder. But Chelsea King is still no where to be found.
I grew up in this area of San Diego. And I guess that's why this topic is hitting so close to home (If you remember the big fire in San Diego a couple years ago...this is the area that was hit pretty hard). I basically spent my childhood at this community center (brother's pop warner games, my basketball games/practices, brother and sister's baseball/softball games, nieces soccer games, and now my nephews play their sports there). The community center is right next to Lake Hodges and has some hiking trails around it. I pray and hope that Chelsea can be found. My thoughts and prayers go out to all her loved ones.
There is a lot going on in the world right now, but if you can add Chelsea King and her family to your thoughts and prayers...thank you.
Let's bring Chelsea back home!!!
