school teens, Asia's family was religious and the christian faith ran deep in the degree home Asia and O'Bryant as well as her parents were devoted to their weekly worship. This was essentially the social circle of the degree family as they spent much of their weekends at church or socializing with friends and family from their church. Asia was very involved in her church. She took her bible studies seriously and was said to have had a beautiful voice as she took part in the church's choir, Asia and your brother O'brien or responsible Children, their parents trusted them to come home from school and do what homework was necessary and perhaps fix themselves a snack. They would have been what was referred to as Latchkey kids. This is in no way a judgment. When I was a young child in the 90s, I would let myself into my home where my parents were at work and I would do my homework and make myself a stack. I would walk the dog and then my parents would come home. There was no need for a babysitter. So I completely understand the situation in the degree home as Harold and I quill over both working full time hours and they relied on their Children to get done what they needed to. This had never been an issue as these were kind and caring Children whose faith meant a great deal to them. They were purposefully not corrupted by outside influences such as the internet or too much television. Harold and Aquila felt safe knowing that their Children would return home as promised and have all their homework complete as this was reportedly part of their arrangement. The Children were sheltered in that they lived in a loving home without outside forces to corrupt them. As I just mentioned, they were in a bubble of school, the church and sports and at that at their age is this was possible They had no internet as I previously mentioned and sources say that the family didn't even own a computer. This was 2000. So it was safe to say that most homes had a computer and the internet by this point it may have been that will dial up kind. But we definitely had several computers and the Internet in 2000, as did most of my friends, Isha's parents also had tight restrictions around the T. V. They wanted their Children to nourish their minds to blossom and grow. They didn't want them to stagnate in front of the screen. This is admirable as these days. Most Children spend the majority of their lives in front of a screen. Asia and o brien had a different lifestyle. I remember my father kicking me out of bed at this age and telling me to go ride my bike on Weekends around eight a.m. This is what Asia's family reminds me of. Like Willis says that she hated to turn on the tv, particularly the news, since there was always some news of pedophile abducting a child. Perhaps her impressions of the news cycle prior to her daughter's disappearance was a creepy sort.
