Thursday marked a tragic sixth anniversary for the people of Saipan, the principal island of the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) where I lived during my high school years. Sometime between 6 and 6:30 a.m. May 25, 2011, Faloma and Maleina Luhk (pronounced “Luke”), ages 9 and 10, disappeared from the bus stop where they had been waiting to go to school. May 25 was a Wednesday that year on Saipan, a 44-square-mile island -- about 1/17th the size of Kershaw County -- in the middle of the western Pacific Ocean.
