If  Adam Walsh were alive today, he would have just celebrated his 34th birthday.  If Adam Walsh were alive today, we might not have a national database to find missing and exploited children, we would probably not have heard of John Walsh, we would not have America's Most Wanted.  If Adam Walsh had lived, married, raised a family, went to college, lived a long a prosperous life, what would have happened to the rest of us?

The day that Adam Walsh was taken from his father, little did the man who harmed him know that he had awakened a sleeping tiger.  I've always viewed John Walsh as a gentle man, content to be a family man, to live in the shadows, raise his family and die an inobstrustive, common death.  Surely he would have been loved by his family, by Adam and his children, nit that wasn't to be.  Over the past 25 years, I have seen the passion, the determination, the lack of fear, the empathy as he as helped so many of us find our loved ones, find closure for our families.  And that is why I was so happy, bittersweet happiness, tears of joy and pain when there was finally closure for the Walsh family.

I would like to think that now Adam is looking down upon his father, as he always has during these 25 years and thought "Well, done Dad".
I hope and pray to God every night that I never have to suffer the way that he has suffered.  I couldn't do it.  I know that as strong as I'd like to think I am, that would have been my breaking point. We have five children, I couldn't bear losing one.
