Hello all of my wonderful neighbors in the blogosphere! I have been missing in action for somewhere around a month. I just havn't had the motivation for much of anything lately. I guess you could say I just hit a low point during this deployment. It is expected, I will have my ups and downs as the time goes on. What have I been up to during my month hiatus?
*Steps up on soapbox... taps mic and clears throat*
Well I was addicted to the Casey Anthony case, which ended today with a not guilty verdict on all charges except for providing false information to law enforcement officers times 4. Now I don't want to start a big ole confrontation on my blog for sharing my opinions, so take my opinions as just that, an emotional opinion. I mean no offense to anyone by my opinion. I am not even a mother yet, but I don't understand how a mother can go 31 days with her daughter missing and not report it. In my opinion I don't think if Cindy Anthony had not gone looking for Casey and pry the information about Caylee's "whereabouts" out of her, that Casey would have come forward on her own about Caylee's disappearance. I think this is where it gets to me that the Jury found her not guilty on all accounts when pertaining to Caylee. Not reporting that you 2 year old daughter has been missing for 31 days is child abuse to me. If Cindy hadn't been a caring grandmother and gone to pry the information out, who is to say that it wouldn't have been 6 months before someone else noticed the lack of Caylee being around? To me, that is CHILD ABUSE. Sure the Defense won the case today, but going and celebrating a block from the courthouse where you are shown on national television drinking and jumping around in jubilation, come on... really? There is a 2 year old little girl whose life was cut way short at the hands of someone, and that someone, we may never know who it was, why, how... I figured a little more tact would be used, but I guess I was wrong.
