    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."

    I wish there was more info.
    I was working Thursday morning someplace on the corner of Bloomfield ave (the day she went missing- but I think it was at 7:00 she was last seen?).
    Bloomfield ave. has a lot of traffic and a fair amount of pedestrian activity since it's a commercial avenue and a main road through to other towns. Hopefully someone spotted her or she was seen on security cameras near where she was last reported to have been.

    street view of where she was last reported. As you can see it's an active intersection.

    There are posters up for this missing woman at the PATH stations now. No more info on the posters other than what is already known. I didn't see the posters in Newark Penn station, but they were in the Journal Square PATH station. Right near that station is India Square which has a large East Asian and Middle Eastern population. There's lots of great Indian restaurants and grocery stores. I wonder if that means she's been known to travel there before? Maybe she's done shopping or socialized in Jersey City in the past.

    Her family and/or community is doing a very good job getting her missing posters on retail corners, in bus stops, and transit centers throughout Newark and the surrounding area.

    I wish there was more info available as to what places she frequented and what her interests outside the house were so that we could brainstorm some places she might have been last. Also, I'm seeing some articles that say she was last seen at 7:00 AM and some say 7:00 PM. It would be good to get clarification and find out whether she was dashing out to a bodega or going for a walk, etc.

    I just saw some flyers at the stop I get off at (in Harrison). They must have just put them up this weekend. I'm sadden that she has not yet been found. Anyone know of any current updates?
