Readers, I know very few of you who visit this blog live in or anywhere near southern Indiana.
However, the internet has made a global community out of us: Druid, Pagan, Christian, or simple passer-by, we’re all drawn together by virtue of the written word. You are hearing my voice through the back-lit black text before you. I am a real person, and I am asking for real help.
A 20-year-old Indiana University student named Lauren Spierer has been missing for a week now, and local police seem to have no tangible leads. You may have no tips for the authorities, but you do have a voice. Tweet #FindLauren, repost this blog post, or visit our university news site or another local, less local, or national news site to learn how else you can help.
We’ve all been a friend, a parent, or a sibling, and we all know what it means to feel fear. Please help. Say a prayer, light a candle, do whatever feels right and best to you, but please help.
