Before you get to the post of the day for today let's journey back to long ago yesterday and another touching post from Donjeta.
Donjeta is a jewel of a poster. You really should read all of her posts.
The winning post from yesterday comes from the Jhessye Shockley murder case. Jhessye's own mother killed her but her body has yet to be found. Killer mom has been found guilty.
In case Jhessye's siblings ever google Jhessye and find this thread, I'd like you to know that there is a bunch of strangers who never met Jhessye or any of you but who cared deeply about all that happened. Everyone here is so sorry that Jhessye could not grow up to be whatever she was destined to be. I'm sure it would have been something splendid, she was such an awesome child. The thought of her as a victim in a closet is unbearable, and it must be much more so for you who knew her and loved her. But I hope you can remember her as she was on a good day, dancing or laughing or hugging someone she loved and who loved her. Hold on to those memories, she was never just a victim.
In the sentencing hearing the defense attorney said that you children all love your mother. Maybe you do. But don't feel guilty that she is in prison for the rest of her life now. None of it is your fault. It was choices that she made. Jhessye didn't have to die in a closet, but she did, and that's why Jerice is going to die as an inmate. Don't blame yourselves. None of it is your fault.
It was said that your mother loves you and worked hard to unite the family. And maybe she does, and she did, but her love failed you. Her kind of love hurts, and kills. You are all safer loving each other while she is in prison and can't hurt anyone else.
At least physically. I know what happened to Jhessye and what happened to all of you earlier will continue to hurt you and haunt you for a long time. It has robbed a big chunk of your childhood and I'm truly sorry for that. I don't know where you are now but I hope it's a place where you are loved and kept safe and you can talk to people you trust. I pray you can get professional help if and when you need it. I hope you know that you deserve to be loved, and what Jerice taught you about family isn't the whole truth. Please don't think that you deserve to be abused because it's not true at all. That's what abusers want you to think but it's a lie.
At the sentencing hearing, the defense also said that Jerice was the victim of her own upbringing and her parenting was violent because that was the only thing that she knew. Please know that she said this only because it was her job to say whatever she thought could help Jerice. It is not a law of nature that abused children must become abusive parents. Many abused children are able to break the cycle of abuse and they decide to become all the better parents precisely because they were abused themselves, because they don't want to do the same mistakes their parents did.
Wherever you are, and whatever you do, I hope you know there are people who care, and nothing that happened was your fault. Jerice did a number of very bad decisions, but you deserve to be loved and to give love. These events stole a lot of the joy of your childhood but it doesn't define who you are. I hope you have Jhessye as a little butterfly angel looking over your shoulder, and a lot of magnificent people loving you and taking care of you because that's what you deserve. Your mother can't be there to take care of you now, but tender loving care is what you deserve. You are worth it. Don't ever forget it.
With love from a stranger who doesn't know any of you but who will always remember Jhessye with butterflies in her hair.
So, go forth and nominate the next post for the Websleuths Post of the Day

Inthedetails wins for Tuesday July 21st for this FANTASTIC post about the Duggar family:

A big "No Thank You" to the special program with the Duggars about child molestation. What is with these people? If they really want to do this as some sort of public service, let it be for awhile and do it later. Producing a show so soon after discovery of cover-up reeks of insincerity, not to mention insensitivity to the girls.
I'm guessing they will see this as part of their mission. But wise missionaries know that you don't always have to be PREACHING. In fact, wise missionaries don't preach.
Grrr.....what is with this family?!? (And I was a fan!)
