Humans are held hostage in many ways
economics, relationships, religious beliefs, politics, and mostly their emotions.

6 a.m. ... I woke up early ... pulled up the shade on a bright sunny morning then laid down again to relax and watch the ships as they slowly sail into New York Harbor or out to sea. It's a great way to start the day.
It was too early to return to my next port of call - my computer - so I decided to watch one of the five shows I recorded Monday night. As I looked at the list on my cable box, I immediately chose Hawaii Five-0 - an episode called "To Take Captive". After missing for 10 years, 17-year-old Amanda Morris is found dead, shot in the back, in a shallow grave. The investigation of her body reveals a disturbing fact: traces of a 6-year-old girl who was recently reported kidnapped.
Once again team Five-0 to the rescue as I wondered if our souls are being held captive in physical reality and when we would be set free. There is something about women being rescued that always touches my heart. It makes me wonder what I would do if captured, which is unlikely in this lifetime. Maybe it's an emotional throwback to the WWII Nazi timeline when I was a male physicist trying to escape with secret documents about time travel. I was captured and later killed in an explosion, the documents hidden in a canister somewhere on the east coast of the US.
7 a.m. ... It was time to get out of bed, do some stretches and watch the morning news before another busy day. As art imitates life ... and sometimes the other way around ... the first headline was about three women held hostage in Cleveland for over a decade who finally escaped their three male captors - one of them named Amanda.
One has to wonder why these women, and others held captive, didn't escape or weren't rescued by police who were warned by neighbors. Fear would be the answer and rules the program. More about their years in captivity will be revealed in the days ahead. Can you imagine what is going through the minds of other parents whose daughters are missing?
If you understand the nature of reality - this was all part of their programmed experiences. It also speaks to the concepts of "free will" and "god" - one who would allow things like this to happen. As we know, people are challenged and abusive which causes the dramas we play out. From there we go to healing and recovery. [As I typed this - very loud thunder - accompanied by a large bolt of lightning - momentarily diverted by attention - Tuesday's gorgeous spring day giving way to thunderstorms.]
The article below is about a psychic who worked on the case. I was never part of that investigation.
2013 Cleveland, Ohio, missing trio Wikipedia
Three young women from Cleveland, Ohio, Amanda Berry, Georgina "Gina" DeJesus, and Michelle Knight, had been missing for between nine and eleven years when they were found alive on May 6, 2013. They were freed from a house belonging to a man named Ariel Castro, one of the suspects in their disappearances, 3 miles (4.8 km) from where they had disappeared. A six-year-old daughter of Amanda Berry also escaped. Knight disappeared in 2002 at age 20, Berry in 2003 at age 17, and DeJesus in 2004 at age 14. The women had multiple pregnancies, at least five live births, and multiple miscarriages. Police said the women were sometimes kept in "chains and bondage". Ariel Castro and his two brothers, Pedro Castro and Onil Castro, were arrested on May 6, 2013, shortly after the women escaped.
'We should never give up hope': 5 other missing-child stories with happy endings MSNBC - May 7, 2013
Hundreds of thousands of children are reported missing each year according to The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children - although that figure includes vast numbers of kids who briefly run away, are abandoned or are taken by relatives. The center says a far smaller number, about 115 a year, are victims of stereotypical kidnapping, meaning they are abducted by a stranger or an acquaintance, taken far from home and held with the intent to keep them for good.
