Angels of the Disappeared, March 26, 2006

Angels of the Disappeared.........

Tonight, while catching up on some blog reading, I came across another one of those heartbreaking stories, that we hear all too often, about missing children. This time, it's a story of two young boys from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and it serves as a reminder to all of us not to take for granted the time we have with those most precious to us....our children. After doing a little more research on the story, I learned that these parents are going into the second week of not knowing the whereabouts of their children. And now the authorities think a crime may have been committed. It's a horrible story that desperately cries out for a happy ending. So, if you're in the Milwaukee area and you're reading this or if you happen to be traveling in the area....keep your eyes open and maybe you can be an Angel for the Disappeared.

"ANGELS OF THE DISAPPEARED" Rick Springfield

I send it out, a prayer tonite
To all the angels of the disappeared
May they sleep in your arms tonite
And may they know they're not forgotten here
And the angels of the disappeared
Are on a city corner or a downtown subway train
And the world is watching and waiting to say
Welcome home to you
Welcome home to you
The highways run, the cities glare
Looking for God's fingerprints somewhere
And every night the alarm is set
So you can remember what you can't forget
And the angels of the disappeared
Watch a southern highway and a midwestern trailer park
And a town is watching and waiting to say
Welcome home to you
Welcome home to you
God knows dreams come true
Welcome home to you
We take the precious thing and we break it apart
there's no such thing as an unchangeable heart
And the angels of the disappeared
are walking hand in hand with the vanished ones tonite
And a heart is watching and waiting to say
Welcome home to you
Welcome home to you
God knows dreams come true
Welcome home to you
And the angels of the disappeared
Oh they're busy tonite
