Action, Fear and Faith

     I mailed my last blog, An Appeal to Law Enforcement, to the police chief in the Pennsylvania township where my son was killed.  I also summarized all the salient facts pointing to evidence his death was not a suicide. I submitted them to the same township's Crime Tips.  I asked for justice finally for Chris and asked that his case be re-examined.  I felt I owed one more try to Chris.
     Trying to deal with the anger I feel over the injustice of Chris' situation was giving me tremendous headaches.  Since doing the above, the headaches have improved.  If I get no response, I am no worse off.  At least I tried.  And in a sense, no response will support my suspicions about the political corruption existing in this town.  I have to admit, I feel somewhat fearful and apprehensive.   I am afraid if the politically connected father of the young woman involved is informed, he will try to retaliate against me.  Meanwhile, I will wait, hope and pray.
     I will pray to accept what is and focus on what is positive in my life.  You have to take steps to protect your health.  You are still allowed to live and enjoy life.  As such, I am trying to bask in the successes my books are having and my upcoming book signing event.  Trying to work on acceptance and integrate this with my present life is proving to be a struggle.  But, one I must get through.  I have faith I can do this and hope one day Chris will get justice.  If you think of it, pray for me.  I will pray for you daily.  God bless.

It is so frustrating that law enforcement tends to do what is most expedient for them, not for the victim. Political and personal connections affect their actions and truth, justice, and ethics are not part of the equation. These injustices add to the terrible burdens carried by the victims. Unfortunately I know this from personal experience.

I'll be thinking of you. I hope someone takes your letter seriously.

I have come to the conclusion that victims have few if any rights. The system has evolved into over-protecting the rights of suspects and the accused. Where there are no ethics, yes, victims suffer a lifetime. It is what it is. A friend of mine always says, "God sees everything." Better to have to suffer some punishment on earth than face Divine retribution unrepentant. If I protected someone who killed a person, I would feel nothing good could come to me in my life. Maybe it doesn't. I saw the woman involved with my son's situation on Facebook. She does not look good and has aged
beyond her years. Eventually, people have to face their own mortality and strange things happen to their guilty consciences. Thank you for thinking of me and your kind words.
