Heads Or Tails #95

The theme/prompt for THIS week, June 16, is:

HEADS - Lost
*OR*
TAILS - Found

Make any kind of post using either theme/prompt. You can even use both.



Normally I try to write something with a humorous slant. Not this week.

On May 24 five year old Nevaeh Buchanan turned up missing from the city I live in.

The search for her was on all the local news channels. Fliers were on almost every telephone pole and in store windows.

Her body was found May 29 in my city.. near a riverbank.

This is a tragedy to be sure. But what really pisses me off (and I suspect a lot more people than me) is that her mother allowed two convicted sex offenders in her home. Around her precious young daughter.


Nevaeh is Heaven spelled backwards. I'm sure that's where this angel is now.

I once knew someone online whose baby died from crib death. This song was played at the funeral. I play it now for Nevaeh.




"If it's lonely where you are.. come back down. I won't tell 'em your name.."

so tragic. children need to be treasured and protected and it breaks my heart to hear of another precious kid abused.
her mother should be held accountable for being so irresponsible and ignorant skits.

Hey Barb... quite somber, but a good reminder. TY.

Your right, this is a total tradjedy, and I wish people would think about who they are letting in their homes...I am sorry she had such a short life..it should have been longer...

I continue to wonder why God allows some to have children when others who would love and value them are not able to conceive.

There is a special place in Hell for people who harm children, and the elderly or anyone who is vulnerable, and cannot protect themselves. How very sad, and tragic :(

Vicki said...

Horrible. I can't understand how anyone could do things like that to anyone, let alone a child. It makes my head and heart hurt to think about it.

Very sad indeed.
Was one of the offenders the suspect?
