With the recent string of children being abducted and killed it was mortifying to a lot of Philadelphians when it home on Monday when 7 year old Erica Pratt was taken from her own block. DUe to her own courageous efforts and the grace of God, she is back home now safe with family. Yesterday young Erica chewed through the duct tape that her abductors had around her wrist, then removed the tape from around her eyes. Erica then kicked open a door and broke a window screaming for help. Children on this block went and got the cops in the area and they freed Erica. When I heard the story i could do nothing but thank God that this girl was ok. I just had to thank God that we didn't have to lose another youngster in such a horrendous way. Thank God.
