Help find missing brothers from Land of Lincoln

--Updated March 30, 2009*

I vowed when I started this blog that everything I wrote would have a connection to Lincoln and I've always found one. Today, however, I think it's important to share something else from the daily news.

A little more than a week ago in Central Illinois, a father failed to return his sons to their mother after his weekend visitation. The father, Michael Connolly, and his sons, Duncan, 9, and Jack, 7, are still missing, and there is great concern about their safety. Law enforcement officials suggest that people preparing to go on spring break print fliers to distribute across the country during their travels.

Visitors to this blog live in all 50 states and almost 30 countries in five continents. Just think how you could help spread the word, too. If you'd like to print fliers to post in your area, you may download them from a link in an article in The Pantagraph, a Bloomington (Ill.) newspaper. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could help bring Duncan and Jack back home?

* The bodies of Duncan, Jack and their father were found March 29, 2009 in rural Putnam County (Ill.). My sympathy to their family. The comments feature is not available for this story. Please, just keep their loved ones in your prayers.
