Lest we forget: This Woman Deserves To Know Where Her Daughter Is!Topics: Natalee Holloway
I can't look at this image without reflecting upon the awful pain of a mother having her heart torn from her chest by the unthinkable possibility of her daughter having been murdered, or at the very least, gone without a trace - with an almost certain probability of never seeing her again! The heart-tugging memory of her daughter will never fade from her mind, and for the rest of her life, she will wonder what has happened to her child. The world may forget about Natalee, but her mother, and her father, will forever remember their daughter, the child and the life that they experienced for so many years - now gone.
To this regard, Scared Monkeys has a post up that addresses the fading coverage of the Natalee Holloway case, post Katrina, by the mainstream media. They write of the fading coverage and pledge to stay involved in covering the story. Dan at Riehl World View says essentially the same thing, writing that it's an issue and a story that he has no intention of dropping. Owing to the strong emotional pull of a parent in such agony as has been displayed by Beth Holloway, along with the thought of any parent having to endure the sudden and unexplaned disappearance of a child, I can't help but feel compeled to also continue following the case of Natalee's disappearance, and that of others who may suffer the same fate.
While many believe that the months of 24/7 coverage of her disappearance was supersaturation, a great many others can't get her off of their mind; I can only guess that most in the latter group have children of their own. Any parent can be thrust into the same position as Beth Holloway, and as with Natalee's parents, we would deserve to know what happened to our child.
Ian has a new Natalee Holloway forum up at Blogs For Natalee.
Related: Prime Minister Nelson Oduber, who has previously said Aruban authorities made mistakes in the early part of the Holloway investigation, added that he could appreciate the "dismay" of the missing teen's mother, and also that the case is not concluded. he pledges to continue to demand that the search for answers into what happened to Natalee will not cease.

I think posters should be made of this picture of Beth Holloway Twitty and they should be put up throughout Aruba, especially by the homes of Deepak and Satish and Joran Van der Sloot. Better yet, send some to be posted by Joran's new school.

I like your idea, Carol - no parent should ever have to go through such gut-wrenching, torment over where their "baby" is. And to any parent that looses a child, regardless of the child's age - that child is and always will be, their baby!
