it was twenty(five) years ago today

John Walsh & his wife are at the White House today to be present for when the President signs the Adam Walsh Bill into law. For those who don't know, John Walsh is the face of America's Most Wanted, and The Center for Missing and Exploited Children. His son, Adam was abducted 25 years ago from a shopping mall, and a few days later his severed head was found within miles of the area where he went missing. His body has yet to be found, and no one has been implicated in the case.

John Walsh dedicated his life to the prevention of such horrors occuring, and became an advocate for the child sex offender registry. The proposed Bill being signed into effect today, the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, legalizes a National Sex Offender registry.

Finally. It's a great step in the right direction.
