IA - Abou Sheriff, 12, Des Moines, 9 May 2015
Authorities monitoring river banks for missing 12-year-old
Authorities searched the Des Moines River Saturday night for a boy who went underwater while swimming and did not reemerge. Des Moines firefighters responded to 600 Birdland Drive around 8 p.m. Saturday. They said four boys, ages 9-12, were swimming near the dock in the river.
Authorities said the missing boy, 12-year-old Abou Sheriff, went missing after jumping off the dock just east of the 6th Avenue bridge. One of the children asked someone to call 911 when he did not resurface.
The Des Moines Fire Department wet emergency team joined the search effort, and searched the water's surface north from Birdland Marina. Des Moines police took over from the fire department's search Saturday night.Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
"When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."
