PLEASE!!!! SUPPORT AND CAMPAIGN TO "ABOLISH" "LIFE" AND "LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE FOR "JUVENILES"!!!
A MOTHER'S SENTENCING~~
In 10 days we will enter into our 16th year of living with life without parole. Never in my wildest dreams did I believe that we would still be enduring this nightmare. I entered into this so naive to think that justice would prevail. After all, isn't this right promised to all Americans......justice for all!
The frustration of not being able to do anything to save your own child is sometimes almost unbearable. You want to just run up and down the street screaming at the top of your lungs how unfair this is and will someone please do something! Then there are other times you slip into such a depression that you wonder how can I go on with this any longer. Of course, what keeps you going on is the fact that your son is depending on you to correct this horrible inequity. Just the thought of the month of February approaching makes you wish you could just sleep through the entire month and pretend it never happened. Oh, the hindsight......and you go over it and over it in your mind, of woulda's and shoulda's, torturing yourself with what you didn't do. The blame and guilt comes over you like a plaque because we didn't have the money to buy his justice.
There is no giving up and after all the depressed thoughts, despair, and disappointments have faded once more......you begin again and pray that one day soon you will see him walk through those prison gates and into the arms of the family that loves him.
