Christmas: Oh What Fun It Is To Have Child Abductors Make Threats
Now I must admit, I enjoy receiving letters, particularly from readers from all around the world who have contacted me about my various novels such as Chasing The Cyclone, Cloning Christ, and The Den of the Assassin, or my non-fiction historical works including In Their Own Words or The World Turned Upside Down.
On a near-daily basis I also receive at least one new email from a parent somewhere in the world thanking me for my and the I CARE Foundation's team's work in helping protect chid abduction.
So, as part of the course, and because of the increased activity of the foundation's success in helping others, par for the course is that on occasion I will receive 'Love Letters' from child kidnappers or would-be child abductors offering all sorts of pleasantries.
Today was one of those days when I received more lovely fan mail.
And so, I do try to write back to everyone who writes to me. So here is my message to my most recent admirer:
My Dear Secret Admirer,
Thank you for taking the time to write and offer some suggestions on things you are willing to do on my behalf. It is very thoughtful of you to keep me in mind. It is also very considerate of you to remind me of just how important my and the I CARE Foundation's work is, especially when it comes to standing up to monsters who make threats like you recently have. In being reminded of the lunatics that steal children - you included - I recommit myself to standing in the face of the heinous act of child kidnapping. And as I reemit myself, I know that there are more than simply a few good men who really care.
I hope you enjoy your day. As for me - I am going to go cower under my bed, worry about you, and move to Mars. Oh wait, instead I think I'm going to take a deep breath, and have a fruit salad ... one filled with oranges, apples, bananas, kiwi, peaches, plums, pears, grapes, melons, strawberries and the likes.
Thank you for reminding me that there are idiots and bullies in the world who must be stood up to.
So here I am ....
Oh one last thing ... I now know who you are. Enjoy the rest of the day.
