Mother Earth’s Cries
by Ameena Rafeek
Her Stories Contest – 3rd Place Winner
As the water flows,
Mother Earth cries for her land.
The greenery blows,
As Mother Earth sways and shakes.
Pools of tears below.
In comes the sunlight,
Peeking in through the mountains.
A new light, a glow.
Mother Earth’s teardrops,
They grow and nourish the Earth.
And her cries echo.
What Happened to the Larsons
On March 26, 2009, Brie and Michael Larson passed away due to unknown causes. Their bodies were never recovered. Their three daughters, Amara, Brynn, and Saige Larson, were put up for adoption and taken in by separate parents. On March 27, 2014, Amara, the eldest child, suffered another loss with the death of her adoptive parents. On March 28, 2017, the same thing happened to Brynn’s parents. And on March 29, 2020, the same thing occurred in Saige’s household. On March 30, 2020, all three girls disappeared, and their current whereabouts are unknown. What happened to the Larsons?
