Day of the Disappeared

Reading the news, I saw that today is the Day of the Disappeared. Sounds like it might have to do with astounding magic tricks, but instead it is to draw attention to people who have seemed to simply vanish... unaccounted for as a result of armed conflict or internal violence. If you are interested, you can read more about it here: http:..www.icrc.org/Wed/Eng/siteeng0.nsf/htmlall/themissing?OpenDocument

Now, I promise to post something more fun in a bit...

I saw something about this earlier today as well. It must be rough for someone who knows a person who just vanished.

Evil-E: I imagine it is pretty awful. You know how "not knowing" is always the hardest part...
