My blog is a place where I share the things that make my life more enjoyable and more worth living…my children, fun things I do with them, etc. The posts I publish are the things I live for.
Often, life isn’t fair, and the most we can do is try to find joy in life. Many bloggers, Facebookers, Twitter-ers, etc are in an outrage about the Casey Anthony verdict and I don’t blame them…however, I cannot condemn the jurors or the judge for what they decided. This is how our justice system works. Whether it is broken or not, the focus is still on protecting the innocent above all.
Ever since I heard the verdict of Anthony’s trial, this quote keeps playing through my mind: “It is better that 10 guilty men should go free than 1 innocent man be wrongly convicted.” There was enough doubt with this case that Anthony could not be convicted.
And that is what I live for! I live for the hope that I will be protected, that my children and family will be protected should we ever be wrongly accused. I live for the hope that people around the world will learn from this horrible tragedy and hug their children a little closer, love them a little more. I live for the hope that children like Caylee Anthony and Christian Choate will be noticed, loved and protected in the future. This is what I live for!
