Sad anniversary

Twenty four year ago today, Jacob Wetterling was abducted at gunpoint in rural Minnesota by a masked man.  Jacob was eleven years old, and no trace of him has been found.  He would be 35 today, and his mom, who is on the board of the Center for Missing and Exploited Children, has asked that we leave our porch lights on to show we haven't forgotten.

The Boy™ was a year and a half old at the time, you can imagine how it affected me.  Turn on your porch light?
