A pale blue dot.

Of the “pale blue dot,” astronomer Carl Sagan said:
 “That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar,’ every ‘supreme leader,’ every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there—on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”

Chris, You sound like a caring person and that you are doing what you can to help the family get answers about Amy's disappearance. I think you are brave. I wish I could help in some way. I think the person who calls herself "Me" has got some good analytic thinking going on. She sounds like a dog with a bone, and that's what is needed. You two should ban together and find Amy. Do it please.
