    The 2 nd coming which all 3 Faith’s are waiting for, isn’t about forgiveness no more and about removing the evil from this world. Justice will be swift when it happens. God is great!

    Please focus on the situation at hand instead of turning this into a religious debate – no matter what you believe. I am just re-leaved that it didn’t end in any physical harm or death for this child. I also am thankful for the Amber Alert and concerned citizens who helped.

    Amber alerts work a good share of the time thank goodness. I saw the alert on TV before checking my cell phone. The sheer number of people it reaches and the details included really are key. This little girl and her parents are very fortunate.

    1st of all, we Thank God that she was found safe! Secondly, its a sad, sad, world we live in, because if we have something NICE, we have always got to be aware that someone else will want it (Volvo). That is why many of us drive junk heap cars, or move to the Suburbs and ‘hope’ no one will steal it.
