Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were abducted and held captive for up to ten years in a Cleveland house. Today they spoke out for the first time in a video made available to the public.
We are very happy they are doing so well. The public should be mindful that the healing and recovery process takes a lot of time and respectful of their request for privacy.
As we all continue to support Amanda, Gina and Michelle, we must keep hope alive for other missing children. In recent years, it’s been encouraging to see more recoveries of long-term missing children. There are more children out there, waiting to be rescued.
