What is a parent’s worst nightmare? We’re all different, but I can personally say that more than death, a Caveman’s biggest fear is the loss of his child. You spend your whole life protecting, nourishing and making them fit for the world. The most unimaginable is that same world stealing them away from you.
Reading statistics on child kidnappings per year really got my blood flowing and it should get your insides fiery too. Did you know that the U.S. Department of Justice has reported “797,500 children younger than 18 were reported missing in a one-year period of time” (MissingKids.com). That’s over two thousand children a day. Two Thousand. I hope you’d agree with me when I say: That is unacceptable. I’d prefer not to talk about the demented stories of each kidnapping due to some of the graphic nature, but if you would like to read more on the subject, visit this link: MissingKids.com.
My question is: Why? How is your child’s safety not your top priority every day? Are you doing everything you can to at least keep them in your peripherals? Obviously, we put a lot of trust in each other in this society. We expect our teachers to guide, our officers to protect and our neighbors to keep a watchful eye on our property as we will theirs’.
But: Two thousand a day. If that doesn’t scream “THIS IS A FLAWED SYSTEM” I don’t know what does.
This life is a busy one, I know that as well as anyone and nobody expects parents to hold their child’s hand through everything they do in life, but you need to know that there are ways to protect them even when they’re out of sight. And there are ways to do it discreetly.
GPS and tracking devices are step one. Trackers can go everywhere from pant pockets to shoe laces to backpacks. They come in lots of different guises, from teddy bears to key chains to classic plastic or metal devices. The physical appearance of the tracker depends on you and your child’s age but truthfully, after reading those statistics I would’ve bought a 10 pound brick and dropped it in my kid’s bag if it meant their safety. Luckily 10 pound brick trackers have no place in today’s GPS technology. To find a GPS/Tracking Device that fits your needs, visit Home Security Store’s dedicated tracking page: http://www.homesecuritystore.com/c-127-gps-tracking.aspx.
There are lots of folks out there who think child GPS tracking devices are inhumane- a breach of natural rights if you will. I turn around and ask them this: Is it less humane to place a GPS device in a child’s back pack, or to watch them leave for school one day and never come home?
Forget unspoken rules of the collective well-being of all and putting your children’s lives in the trust of this society. You as well as I know that America’s once shared quiet brotherhood of common good and safety hardly exists anymore, if at all. Prepare, prepare, prepare! Two Thousand Children a day- don’t let your child be a statistic.
