*sigh*

I am so ready to be able to blog something good. It seems lately everything has been bad. I feel like a negative nelly:/

Today was another hearing for Ana. I was teary eyed in the beginning, because when she came in, she actually looked up, caught my eye and gave me a big smile. It was an Ana smile :*) That was different. This is the first time she has actually made eye contact. Before, she was so drugged or whatever, she just shuffled in like a zombie, not looking at anyone or anything.

The prosecution is thinking about filing "special circumstances" on her murder charge. Special circumstances means that if she is convicted, she could get life in prison without the possibility of parole, or the death penalty. The death penalty. I can't even comprehend it. She doesn't need to be killed or locked away for the rest of her life. She needs HELP.

{{hugs}} Shelly. I feel ill for you (and Ana) just thinking about the death penalty. I am sorry.

oh Shelly that just makes my blood run cold. I am so sorry, I cannot imagine it.

This is one reason I would never live in a country that had the death penalty. None of us ever know when we can be touched by such a tragedy.
