After Daniel’s tragic disappearance from the Nambour Connection Road, Sunshine Coast, Queensland on December 7th 2003 his family have tirelessly campaigned, not just for the return of their son and brother, but for child safety in the wider community.
To this end they established the Daniel Morcombe Foundation. Their website says it best:
“All too often, children are the innocent victims in our sometimes cruel society. The events surrounding Daniel’s disappearance have strengthened a community in their resolve to ensure that this type of tragedy never occurs again.
But the Daniel Morcombe Foundation’s belief and vision is one that also incorporates a future where all children are provided with protection, education and support in their lives.”
The Morcombe family have always conducted themselves with class and dignity, whilst keeping the memory of their son alive and in our hearts and minds.
I cannot even really imagine their pain at this time.
I sincerely hope though, that the support, tears and hopes of the community carry them through the dark days ahead.
