Bittersweet surrender, but free at last

Long, emotional day – up at 4:30 to drive to Jonesboro, home again at 4:30 this afternoon. Sent packing from the courtroom line after being told repeatedly that we’d made the admissions cut. Oh, well. At least we got to see them walking freely outside.

Can’t possibly imagine how Lorri and Damien, Jason and Jessie and all their families feel, not to mention the families of murdered little boys whose killers still run free thanks to cowardice and pomposity.

But it’s Jason Baldwin who breaks my heart. What a noble soul.

At least maybe now he’ll have a chance to cuddle a baby on a couch as I’m doing. That makes life, even with all the disappointments, ups and downs, worth it.

This Lolly is tired. Over and out.
