Casey Anthony

Here are my mom's thoughts on the Casey Anthony case. She is a very wise woman, and I believe she is right on.

"I, like everyone else, was grieved and sickened by the death of Caylee Anthony and the events surrounding her death. But, no matter what one may think of the Casey Anthony verdict, our justice system worked today as it was set-up to work. A verdict of "Not Guilty" was rendered by a jury of Ms. Anthony's peers due to the fact that there was still some reasonable doubt of her guilt as the murderer of her child. I, for one, thank God that these jurors abided by that standard rather than any personal or public prejudice over Casey Anthony. I am thankful that in this country there is still such a standard and that one is innocent until proven guilty--unlike many other "judicial systems" in this world where one is considered guilty until proven innocent; or where citizens are all viewed with suspicion and treated in kind by those holding legal authority; or where prejudice does decide innocence or guilt.

Ultimately, there will be justice for the death of little Caylee. There is a God who sees and knows all. Vengeance belongs to Him and He will repay. He is also not mocked-- for there is a reaping of what is sowed."
