Unbelievable: The Casey Anthony Verdict

DPCaseyAnthony
Not guilty. 

Those two words sent the arms of every individual in this country up in the air in total disbelief. How can this be? Is this for real? Are we serious? 

Not sure. Yes. And unfortunately, yes.

The verdict of the recent Casey Anthony case is by far the most controversial since that of the OJ Simpson trial. And we all are very aware how that trial ended as well. 

However, the acquittal of Casey Anthony is one that not only causes us to question the validity of justice throughout our nation, but the current judicial system as a whole. While I do understand our constitutional right to due process, this case was as sure as sure can be when it came to the gut reaction. 

She did it.

I’ve yet to meet a person who thought otherwise. And I’m sure, you won’t either.

We can chalk this one up as another “we knew you did it, but we can’t prove it” situation. 

Casey Anthony walks God’s green earth a free woman today due to a prosecution that was unable to undoubtedly prove how Caylee Anthony died, and most importantly, link her death to Casey Anthony’s doing. 

However, the fact remains, a child is dead. And her death will never receive the justice it deserves.
Complete disbelief. 

This case allowed a person that heinously murdered a child to walk free. However, I can’t help but wonder to the contrary, a man that shot himself in a nightclub, and a man convicted of killing dogs each served two years in prison. 

Yes, this is true. 

Yes, this is real. 

Yes, and unfortunately, this is serious.

Unbelievable.

Turning 39 - One Last Go-Around in My 30s

I turn 39 today, and everything I read in regards to such a "milestone" is that it's dealing with the anxiety of turning 40. The big 4-0!  Yet, I sit here punching the keys completely unaware of fears, trepidations, and emotions towards the future. Instead, I find myself immersed in the present - in exactly that, 39. I also find myself slightly looking back on the road to get here - my final year in my 30s.  I look back on my thoughts on turning 30 ( Praying on a Cool Thirty ) and, ironically, I very much vibe and can feel the essence of where I was at the time. At the time, turning thirty meant a whoooooooooooole sort of different expectations and responsibilities. I am in that same place - a center of gratitude for the journey. My 30s have been a ride.  For me, I became a father, and I lost my father. I lost one of my best friends, yet, I gained another in my son - and then a second one just recently. I finished coursework on my second Masters degree, and I also watch

Trump Conviction: Hard to Describe This Time in History

You just have to shake your head at the reality of the situation.  A former President of the United States was just convicted - on several counts - of a crime.  It's the kind of thing, even in a post-Trump Presidency, where even strange things seem normalized, going too far is desensitized, and you ultimately laugh hysterically at the uber strangeness to suppress the sadness, that even this - THIS! - is still attention-grabbing.  It's no secret if you follow this site - I'm no Trump supporter. I understand why voters elected him in 2016 and struggle to understand why so many stay with him through it all for a 2024 campaign.  We've reach a new level where American voters will outright neglect crimes, and vote to elect a convicted felon as President of the United States. It's quite hard to describe this time in history.  Yet, here we are.  Several other quick thoughts:  I still wonder whether Trump wins or loses, how does the Republican party move on after Trump? I do
