Years ago, I had the misfortune of shaking hands with a man who now sits on death row. He was my friend's new boyfriend. Charming. Smooth. Easy to talk to. And had just gotten out of prison. Less than a year later, my friend was dead, and her daughter had been brutally attacked and left for dead. Fortunately, she survived and was able to testify against him.
Why am I writing about this now? Because Dateline just aired a report about his crimes called A Postcard from the Field, and while I didn't watch it, just knowing about the show brought back so many memories. Memories I wish I could erase.
I often wonder what could have been done differently, if anything could have prevented my friend's death at this monster's hands. I know I'll never have the answer to that.
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
