The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

For Shasta

As the whole nation sighed with relief for a little girl found, we had all already fell in love with the beautiful smile in the many pictures we had sen for the nearly 7 weeks she was missing. As our hearts continue to go out to this brave little girl, many are wanting to offer their support. And it seems this desire is occurring all over the Nation. For those that wish to send support, gifts, or donate into one of the accounts set up to help this courageous girl, the following clip is for you.

"Groene said the mail lady brings an armful of mail and packages every day and that the only address is: Shasta in Coeur d'Alene.And that's where he would like people to send things."The post office people know where we live," said Groene, whose daughter will someday feel compelled to respond publicly to thank all those who are making her smile a little more every day.Monetary donations can be dropped off at any U.S. Bank branch or at Inland Northwest Bank, 955 Ironwood, 664-8747."

It is said in one report (here) that Duncan used a camcorder in his attacks, and recorder numerous attempts to murder the children, but failed after something the children said or done. In one apparent attempt to slay Dylan, the boy — who was bound and gagged and unable to wiggle little more than his hands — flashed the "I love you" sign to his sister. Having a brother myself, I can tell you nothing can replace the love a brother sheds on his little sister. And though we can not fill the gap she must now feel- I hope that all will be moved to show Shasta the love that we have come to have for the strong and brave, and beautiful little girl who has lost so much at such a young age. Whether it is by sending her letters of encouragement, gifts, or support for the long road she will have to recover from this tragic experience, or by writing our legislators and congressmen and DEMANDING that this be the last story of its kind.
