Although I try to keep this blog as uplifting and inspirational as I possibly can, I guess when something is weighing heavily on my heart I must express that as well!
A verdict was recently reached and I can't say that I know anyone, that agreed with the jury's decision! How then, do these things happen? Like most, I have no answers, just feeling bewildered and indignant!
How much circumstantial evidence does it take to convict someone today? So reminiscent of past high profile trials and does that alone insure, a not guilty verdict. Experts are brought in to confuse issues and cause reasonable doubt. How many of us would be privy to these experts had it not been such a high profile case? Does it then come down to winning and fame? Have we all gone reasonably mad?
We must swallow the bitter pill of the jury's decision and move forward, like it or not.
I find consolation in the fact that this young woman must live within the confinement of her conscience and suffer the consequences of little footprints, forever imprinted upon her soul!
