YOUR TURN: Attempted child abduction

Your Turn: Attempted Abduction in Dyersburg

This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from the Action News 5 Facebook page where parents are expressing concern over the story about an attempted abduction of a child in Dyersburg, Tennessee. Most of the comments were from people offering advice about how to keep your children safe. We chose this note from Sarah Burkett. In her words:

This is so frightening. My daughter doesn't ride the bus, but I'm always aware of where she is and what she's doing. And I will not only continue to be vigilant in knowing her whereabouts, but also stress for her to watch out for others whose parents may not be so vigilant. I'm so thankful this was only an attempt and we aren't reading about a missing young girl. This could have turned out very badly for this young lady. Praise God that is not the case.

That's Sarah Burkett's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210.
