Be sure to tune in and watch Marc Klaas tonight on Larry King Live!!!
It is already happening.
The world is judging Shawn Hornbeck.
Shawn is alive and we should be grateful.
Shawn is safe and we should wish him the best.
Shawn has suffered enough; he should not also suffer the barbs of our criticism and judgment.
Think about it.
Four years ago Shawn was small and vulnerable.
He was stolen by a psychopathic monster (my diagnosis, but you will see that it is true).
This bully without conscience used every trick at his command to beat down, intimidate and abuse Shawn into believing that he had to remain.
That poor boy: the things that must be going through his mind right now.
Shawn Hornbeck needs:
The love and understanding of his family;
The support of the community; large and small;
Intensive counseling... and a lot of time.
Shawn Hornbeck is alive... and right now that should be enough for all of us to celebrate.
What a difference a few hours can make.
Earlier today the prognosis was bleak for Ben Ownby.
Now he is safe at home as is Shawn Hornbeck who was kidnapped from the same general area over 4-years ago.
I thought that it was like the Super Bowl of child recoveries until I heard that Monica and Mercedes Pineda, two Texas Amber Alert victims were also recovered.
All of a sudden it is like the Super Bowl of child recoveries on steroids.
God Bless Ben Ownby, Shawn Hornbeck, Monica Pineda, Mercedes Pineda and Berry Bonds!!!
