"Natalee has created a form for parents to initiate dialogue with their sons and daughters. "Throughout Natalee's disappearance we've learned we need to learn the infrastructure of country we're visiting."
That's just one of the tips provided by Beth Holloway Twitty's non-profit organization called "International Safe Travels Foundation."
Holloway says the movie "The Wizard of Oz" was Natalee's favorite. The famous phrase "you're not in Kansas anymore", spoken by the main character, Dorothy, was echoed in her speech given at the Sloan Convention Center.
She wants teens to understand that the protocol we have in the U.S. may not be the same in other countries.
"The dangers that can exist are right around the corner from where they are within the borders or not. It also shows them challenges they face if they find themselves victims of crime in a foreign country."
She explained her statement in her speech when she spoke of the Aruban law enforcement.
Holloway Twitty says she may never know what happened to her daughter last May.
But, she moves forward knowing her role as a mother in her daughter's disappearance is to help others.
Her non-profit website is designed to help and protect young adults before it's too late.
"What our intention is to hopefully partner with hospitality industries including hotels, wireless service providers and travel agencies."
