On September 11, 1995, 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce was kidnapped at gunpoint from his school bus stop, sodomized, and shot as he was trying to escape.  To free more children from the clutches of sexual predators, The Jimmy Ryce Center for Victims of Predatory Abduction was established in June of 1996, in honor of Jimmy's capacity to love unconditionally and his unquenched spirit in trying to get home even after hours of pain and humiliation.  Jimmy's legacy is reflected in the words from Isaiah carved on his  tombstone:  "a little child shall lead them."
