Amber Alerts

Just wanted to let everyone know about a service I heard about this morning. It’s every parent’s greatest fear to be in a crowded place, look down, and realize your child is missing. Many times, you’re lucky, and the little twerp has merely wandered off somewhere. So then once you place your fragile heart back into your chest, you really tell him (or her) off for doing that.

But there are times (and I pray it never happens to you or me) when a child hasn’t merely wandered off. When the parents frantically search for their child to no avail. As you know, in those cases, Amber Alerts are issued to try to help locate that missing child. The faster the alert goes out, the greater the chance of rescue.

To help spread the word even faster, there’s a new website you can go to, WirelessAmberAlerts.org that will send a text message to your cell phone any time an amber alert has been issued in your area.

All you have to do is go to the link, enter your cell #, answer a few questions, and you’re good to go. If there’s an emergency near you, you’ll be one of the first to find out.

I highly encourage you to check out this service. It could help save a child one day; maybe even one you know.

  1. Ok, first off thanks for the info on the text messeged Amber Alerts.

    Second off, that pic is too cute of you sleeping! I know with all the school and work you’ve gotta be pretty tired. Rest up, I know saturday is going to be tons of fun!

  2. Yeah, I like the new pic and layout as well. I don’t know that I’d exactly call it “cute,” but hey… Whatever floats your boat, Matt.
