"At Christmas time, my brother got lost among the crowds while we looked at lights. We were so worried because he has autism. We looked but we couldn’t find him. Then the workers looked and asked everyone to help. Finally he was found. Everyone being aware was what brought him back. That inspired me to use awareness as the key! Using our awareness to help police is what unlocks bringing missing children home. That is why I made a key of awareness unlocking the lock to the missing child with the child coming out of the lock into the safety of police."
