While I am in favor of the death penalty I am struck by the celebratory, even, macabre attitude conveyed by many. Such a shame. For those of you who are survivors of victims (and, therefore, victims yourselves), I encourage you to seek professional assistance with your emotions if they lead you to promote such a vindictive, celebration of death approach to coping. Best wishes in your ongoing struggles made so apparent by your comments here.
You come in here and chastise some for their emotions by posting a reply that is obviously an emotion outburst for you as well...touche' datroof. I say that after reading your second, much more reserved posting to Vikki here:QuoteWell said, Vicki. I am very sorry for the wait and pain you must deal with on a daily basis. I can't even imagine how that must make so much of life's joys difficult to continue to appreciate. My point was to say the comments of some are clearly an indication the emotions are still very raw for them. And that is a poison that will eat you up from the inside. I live in Indpls. and had a friend who lived close to the first killing in Speedway. So, I am familiar with the history that leads to today. I am, by no means, a proponent of the convicted man in this case. However, I am a proponent of healthy emotional and psychological living. Those who celebrate the most and make the most venomous comments are robbing themselves and their families by not dealing with those issues. Best wishes.
Please refrain from throwing those rocks from your glass house!
Not sure how my first posting was an emotional outburst. Or, for that matter, how I was chastising anybody. But, since you think it appropriate to attack me for expressing my opinion, you might want to look in the emotional mirror on that issue ICE.
