THE Most Vital 'Government Created and Funded' Resource for the Missing
The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs) is the first national repository for missing persons and unidentified decedent records.
Okay, I am strangely both really excited about, yet really frustrated by this...
Excited because...my word! It's so clear! Finally, our government is truly doing something for the families of the missing! They have answered the many fervent pleas and as a direct result NamUs has been created!
We don't even have to spend additional time on fundraising efforts for it! It is government funded! (thus the .gov in NamUs.gov)
So...how and why in the world doesn't EVERY SINGLE CREDIBLE MISSING PERSONS AGENCY AND RESOURCE not have NamUs clearly displayed and included on their site, materials, etc.????!!!
If we truly care about one another, if we truly do have these hearts that break for the family members of the missing, if we truly want to bring them home...then...we should be sharing NamUs with those of the missing in the highest decibel manner possible! RIGHT?!
Because...what really is the point in having a billion albeit wonderful missing persons agencies if they aren't able to work together for the greater good?
That's one thing I so adore about Peace4 the Missing...the ability its members to be "one, sole agenda-free" by not putting self-promotion in the forefront...but rather consistently and strongly uniting together, to truly care and most effectively work towards the common goal we all share...to bring home the Missing...
