Hello All,
I received this important message from a friend in my network yesterday, asking if I would please consider posting this heart-breaking, yet important information. If you have the opportunity, you may wish to hear this information on how to help stop crimes against children.

"A mile a minute - that is how fast your child can disappear." Haunting and truthful words posted on the website for the Klaas Kids Foundation.

On Friday, February 19th, Margaret McSweeney will interview Marc Klaas, father of Polly Klaas who was kidnapped and murdered in 1993. As a legacy to his daughter, Marc founded KlaasKids Foundation to help stop crimes against children. Please tune in to Kitchen Chat with Margaret McSweeney Friday at 11:00 am CST!

Here is an excerpt from Marc's journal that is posted online: "There is nothing that can prepare one for a murder trial. My family sits as the last few hours in Polly's life are dissected, analyzed, de-constructed, reconstructed, cross-referenced and compartmentalized. The constant assault on our sensibilities by horrible revelations that defy the principles of civilization seem overwhelming much of the time. It is impossible to withstand or rise above the continual dehumanizing facts that are revealed in a constant, monotonous stream of revelation. There is no room for anything but the processing of nightmarish information. The killer laughs throughout the video tape and I want to shout, yet I must sit unflinching and stone-faced for fear of causing a mistrial. Every day my family is drawn into the world of murder, mayhem, rape and deprivation and there is no way out." Learn about effective ways to keep your children safe from harm and find out what you can do to help stop crimes against kids.

Please tune in and call in with your questions for Marc this Friday 11-12 CST on Kitchen Chat.
