Great stuff, Jim.
Having been away from home a few days, I missed the beginning. But, being back now – hence, not “killed in action” – I catch up and think this inspiration of yours is absolutely GREAT. I suggest all your contacts join in in a campaign where, now and again, the cases “still outstanding” should be brought into memory again, very much the way we are reminded of missing journalists (for instance Jean-Paul Kauffman in his time of captivity).
