This week all of Wales has gathered together supporting the parents of poor little 5 year old April Jones.

April went missing Monday evening from just outside her home In Machynlleth,North Wales.

People arrived in their hundreds to scour the local countryside but as yet this beautiful little girl has not been found.


A man Mark Bridger was arrested on the suspicion of her abduction on Tuesday and is still in police custody; about an hour ago there was another press conference sharing the sad news that this same man has now been arrested on suspicion April's murder.

Those of you who are on facebook please leave messages of love and support for her family on following links.

Sweet pink ribbons

For our little Princess

Surrounded by love.





Sky News has almost constant coverage on this tragic and so heartbreaking time that has brought so many together.

The family have asked for everyone to wear a pink ribbon and to unite in support and love at the heartbreaking time.

I cannot think of anything else to say.

Thank you.

Eddy.


Each and every heart reaches out

From wherever we may be.

We send our love and compassion

Oh yes whoever we may be.

x

We say each heartfelt prayer

We do now all stand together.

Our hearts now joined as one

Together and wherever.

Oh, Eddy as a mother I just wanted to cry when I read this. Thank you for sharing, because I live in the US and never had even heard of the poor little missing girl until reading your article this morning. I have shared all over (to bring awareness to others about her story) and voted too.

Eddy, Thank you for letting me know that you wrote this. I am saddened, though, to read how this has ended.

I only became aware of April's disappearance by reading Paul Kurt's hopeful tribute to her on Triond yesterday. I immediately googled and discovered, at that time, that the suspect had been arrested just 20 minutes before I googled. The hope was expressed that her whereabouts would be learned from him, so I also was hopeful that this would have a happy ending.

Your tribute is so beautiful, Eddy! Its beauty is beyond words, which is perfect, because angels have a beauty that is beyond words. You have perfectly expressed that beauty, in words and in the thoughts and images which arise.

My prayers and thoughts are with April's family and loved ones, and with her in her new home as well.

There's just too many monsters in the world today. Bring back the days when the Frankenstein's and Dracula's on the screens were the most we had to worry about. If this is how civilization is advancing, we must regress. So sad and unnecessary.

It is so sad that this kind of thing happens to these little ones, i have said a prayer for her family asking God to help them cope with this .


stessily 4 years ago

Eddy, I read yesterday that April was born with cerebral palsy and suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, for which she needed to take medication daily to alleviate pain, and that her father felt particularly distressed about not being able to help in the search for her because he has a degenerative eye condition ~~~ all of this increases the poignancy of this situation, a situation which is unbearable to think about, even more unbearable to experience personally, and which never should happen.

William Butler Yeats wrote his poem, "The Stolen Child", out of his concern for children who disappear, and he emphasized the sadness which seems to be part of life in his refrain: "For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand."

Right now, the world is full of weeping, out of love for April, a child not allowed to grow up with her family, and for her loved ones, who must learn to live without her.

Your tribute is beautiful, Eddy; it shows how big your heart is --- but then your readers already know that.

Appreciatively, Stessily

I've been following this closely on the news and it really is heart breaking. I feel so much for April's family. I was touched by the way the community came together to search for her. I just wish she could be safe and in her Mother's arms. They have arrested Mark Bridger for murder but he obviously isn't talking. Desperately sad.

Eddy,

The poem by William Butler Yeats is "The Stolen Child". Here's a link to it on the Internet:

http://www.online-literature.com/yeats/816/

Also, Canada's Loreena McKennitt beautifully set this poem to music. Here's the link to the YouTube video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRAAfEK7dBM

I hope that April is found soon, so she may be returned to her family for their final farewell. (I have put in another prayer request with Unity.)

All my wishes go now for strength and love to April Jones' family and dear ones.

Kind regards, dear kind-hearted friend,

Stessily
