I was browsing the Yahoo homepage, and noticed the article titled, "Jurors cried, felt sick after acquitting Anthony." Wow. To me that is the cries of a squelched conscious, actually many of them. It really angers me to hear how some thought that she was not innocent yet still voted to acquit her -- that doesn't make any sense to me. Be definition, if you're not innocent, you're guilty.
It's so upsetting to see what our nation has come to. And I apologize if I've also upset you, but it bothers me that we've somehow dissembled common sense to rework it into correct-sounding contradictions. Does everything have to be so simple where no thinking has to take place? In my working with adolescents, I know people want easy methods which will not require much thought or work, but imagine a world of those kinds of people. If you want to take a nation down, get rid of the intellectuals, the thinkers which cannot be easy swayed -- it's happened before.
Ugh. In addition to true justice not being achieved, perhaps monetary windfall will now come from interviews. What?!?
So I hug my two-year-old just a little bit more now and try to teach her to think, logically and independently. Case closed.
