Our friends Sal and Erica are prominent community members in their hometown of El Paso. El Paso shares a border with Juarez, Mexico- now the deadliest city in the world due to drug wars.
They just told Claus and me that they don't share much information on Facebook, particularly their childrens' photos, due to kidnapping and extortion risks. How it works: the drug guys look around for a target and research them online. This had an impact on me.
That night I awoke at 3 am from a nightmare. I shook Claus awake. "Honey, should I pull Olivia's photos off my blog?"
He sighed. "I'm pretty sure the Mexican drug cartels aren't reading the Honolulu Advertiser for parenting tips. I think we're OK."
