The last couple of days have been quite wonderful; I am so amazed by the number of comments from my fellow 2000 Bloggers. The experiment has accomplished its goal, not just the link love to totally screw with the folks at Technorati, but it has also shown how people from around the world can connect with, communicate, educate and entertain each other.
I have been lead to some absolutely fabulous blogs via comments received from my fellow 2000 Bloggers neighbors. My visits to those blogs have been further confirmation that people are people. Regardless of the difference in our packaging by gender, ethnicity and religious beliefs, we have so much in common. Prayerfully, the 2000 Bloggers experiment revolution will be the tipping point toward peaceful co-existence of people around the world.
Through Karoli’s blog odd time signatures, I surfed over to media coverage of the case of Julie Amero, a substitute teacher in Connecticut who was found guilty of four counts of risk of injury to a minor and sentenced to 40 years in prison. Now, I won’t re-hash the specifics of the case, click here for that, and then let me know what you think. The Amero Case is another shameful example of miscarriage of justice in the United States. Hmmm...Sometimes I feel as though I live in the Twilight Zone.
The unfortunate case of Julie Amero is also a reminder that situations are not always about race; sometimes there are just whack-@#% people in the world with power over the lives of others. It’s a shame; how can there be any justification for such madness?
There but for the grace of God go I.
