BLACK & MISSING

Proverbs 29:18 says: Where there is no vision, the people perish. This post today is about vision. I read an article in People Magazine yesterday that moved me beyond words. One of the things that was reiterated in the article is that there are angels right in our midst. No, they don’t always fly around with wings but they function with the heart of God, right where they are.
Before I get too far ahead of myself, let me tell you what I’m talking about. In the February 2, 2013 People magazine, Nicole Weisensee Egan eloquently writes an article about the Black & Missing Foundation. This Foundation is the vision of sisters-in-law Derrica and Natalie Wilson. Their vision is to see to it that the police pay attention when people of color disappear. After witnessing main stream media ignore the black and missing in case after case, the Wilson sisters began their Foundation in 2008.
Derrica is a former cop and Natalie is a communications specialist. Together, they use their skills to work with the police, the media, and the families on a number of missing-persons cases. Yesterday, I reached out to Natalie @ http://www.bamfi.org. She provided me the following profiles of missing persons. Please take a look at them and say something if you know something.
