After Being Held/Tortured For A Year It's Up 2 Us 2 Show Kyle Not All People Are Bad

Once again we have monsters in our society that prey upon innocent children.

Kyle was held and tortured for more than a year by three adults. His story will break your heart. You can read all the details here.
http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=75839

I was trying to come up with something Websleuths could do for Kyle to help him. To let him know the world is not filled with the type of people he has been exposed to. To let Kyle know people from all over the world care about him.

Websleuths is unique in that we can bring people from all over the world together for a common cause.

And what better cause than to help this young man with his life ahead of him.

How many of you have felt alone only to find out people care for you. It is such a warm and wonderful feeling to know people do care.

That's why we are starting a thread for Kyle. I want all our members to post their special message to Kyle. Let him know he is loved, Let him know the world is not the world he has lived in. Let him know his life can be wonderful. Let him know that he has touched the hearts and souls of millions of people. Let him know he is in our thoughts and prayers.

DO NOT POST YOUR MESSAGE TO KYLE ON THIS THREAD. POST IT HERE,
http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...59#post3020259

I want this thread to be HUGE. If you are not a member and want to join so you can post on this thread click on the tab at the top that says "Register" and join. If you join and find out your email is "banned" please email wbsleuth@xmission.com and say you want to join to give Kyle a message and we will work it out.

My friends, we could buy Kyle all kinds of fun things, we could send him to Disneyland and tell him have fun and good luck, but imagine a notebook filled with messages of love and encouragement from people all over the world. He could keep this forever and hopefully it will give him strength in the trying days he has ahead of him.

In addition Websleuths will also give Kyle a nice gift to be announced later. Don't want to spoil the surprise for him.

Here is the thread in which to post your messages to Kyle.
http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...59#post3020259

There is to be NOTHING negative on this thread. We will delete it and give you a time out or ban you depending on the situation.

If you could please carry this message about Kyle's thread to other places on the Internet I would appreciate it. Put it on MySpace, FaceBook, other forums (if allowed) email your friends, anything you can do to get the word out about Kyle's encouragement and love thread.

You have a chance to make a difference in this young man's life. Yes, a difference. Your message to Kyle from your heart will make a difference. Please, do it now, do not put it off.

This will make a wonderful Christmas present for Kyle. Please post. (put in link again)

Tricia, this is a wonderful idea! I just watched an interview with Kyle's brother Austin on cbs13.com news. Maybe they'd be willing to help promote our (WS's) cause.

Tricia - I probably don't need to say this, but just in case. Maybe before printing out the messages for Kyle, the some of the siggy lines could be "moderated"? Many posters have statements referring to the Caylee Anthony case that may not be exactly appropriate for messages to Kyle. The siggys are totally appropriate in regards to Caylee, but maybe not for Kyle?

Thanks,

Salem

Yes, we can do this. I am glad you brought it up because this is what were going to do all along.

We can print the messages without the acutal signatures. I know Kyle would be confused by some of the things our members have in their siggy's.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I f donations will be accepted please let us know. I am disabled and no longer can work but I could donate some money to this deserving young man.

I suffered abuse as a child for many years - my heart was breaking the whole time I read the thread about Kyle. I was glad to read he went from 5'8" weighing 100 lbs to a big strapping 6'2" weighing 250 lbs WOW
No one will ever hurt him again...

Tricia you are a doll for putting this all together! Linda in MN

wow how horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot take it emotionally right now to read about his case but bookmarked the link for his case and will read it in a few days. i am so sad to see that in this day and age and all the tech. breakthroughs that we have that we are not allowed to microchip our kids! BUT, each and every person who is born has their finger/foot prints taken at birth, why can't all that info be added to the databases and THEN run prints for all the cold cases? Bet you ANYTHING there will be TONS of cases solved!!!!!!
