The boy's eyes blinked open and slowly focused on the rat. When recognition finally registered, the startled boy sat up, pushed away the bags of garbage and stood up, trembling on shaky legs. Tripping through the garbage, head and heart pounding out painful reminders of life, the boy put as much distance between him and the rat as he could manage. People don't understand the impact that a simple act of kindness can have on someone's life. We have become a nation afraid to see ather in need and respond. In addition, young people are afraid to trust and believe in faith in God. In Lost and Found, author J.C. Lafler tells the story of a young boy who finds himself in a big city with memory and one to help him. Struggling to find food, water and shelter, and deal with unfamiliar and sometimes frightening surroundings, this child has to find a way to survive. As flashbacks and questions about the past begin to overwhelm him, he leans on the sanctuary of a church and the help of strangers to see him through. Lost and Found is one boy's story of finding his way back to faith, hope and love.
