It’s really hard to imagine what life is like right now for my friend and coworker, Colin Bower. His children were illegally abducted over a year ago, and transported to Egypt against Colin’s will and against the law. It’s been a year of working to get them back, and that’s far too long.
I’ve been acting as a solo dad for the last few days while my wife and son are away in Canada, and it’s been time really well spent. I’ve learned that trying to comb very long hair on an 8-year-old girl is a painful thing for both of us. I’ve learned that just because I fell asleep doesn’t mean that she did, and that she’s quite happy to watch documentary footage about the Titanic all night until I catch her hiding out in the bathroom with a little “cinema” of stuffed animals and the laptop.
Juxtapose those two things: I’m fortunate enough to be a dad to my young child, and Colin’s kids were illegally abducted and he hasn’t seen or heard from them in over a year.
There are people in the US government working to help this process along, but we need your help to keep this situation front and center. Given all the things on our government’s plate, you can imagine how important it is to keep up the voice until Colin’s kids are returned.
Please do Three Simple Things
1.) Please visit this Facebook page and send a letter to Secretary Hilary Clinton (It’s super easy to do.)
2.) Please tweet or share this link: http://bit.ly/noorramsay (which leads to the facebook page).
3.) Please keep Noor, Ramsay, and their Dad, Colin, in your thoughts and prayers.
And thank you.
