What About Us: Missing DC Girls

This article may step on a few toes, but this needs to be said… apparently everyone isn’t seeing the bigger picture in this situation. These girls are someones: daughter, sister, cousin and is MISSING as we speak. Why is this not getting the media attention that it deserves? Every time something like this happens they tend to sweep it under the rug and try to forget it, but this time they can’t do that. This needs to be brought to everyone’s attention, because mother’s can’t keep passing out flyers to find their child. A flyer can only do so much and reach so far without proper media, but in this case most of the media are turning down the story for some odd reason. Now lets say these were white girls I`m pretty sure there would be amber alerts in every state and all over the news interrupting our favorite shows just to inform us. I’m not trying to pull the race card, but let’s be honest this happens all the time.

A few celebrities have spoken out about this situation such as Chaka Khan, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Taraji P. Henson, but we need more of them to speak up about it. We should also call up a community meeting or start a Facebook page about it and go to your local news station and spread the word. These girls matter whether we know it or not and each girl meant something to someone. Imagine, your child is missing and being held hostage at an unknown location. See this from the parents  perspective and tell me how you’d feel ?  We need to get it together and fast! Every minute were not looking for them these girls are being taken somewhere else and farther away. So lets get to work and help find our girls.

Currently, 15-year-old Jacqueline Lassey, 13-year-old Yahshaiyah Enoch, 15-year-old Antwan Jordan, 15-year-old Juliana Otero, 15-year-old Dashann Trikia Wallace, 13-year-old Aniya McNeil, 15-year-old Dayanna White, 16-year-old Talisha Coles, and 15-year-old Morgan Richardson are all still missing.
