I'm sure everyone has heard Caylee Marie Anthony has been declared dead. I've been following this story on CNN for the past few months and I must say that it has truly touched me. I can't imagine how Caylee's grandparents are feeling at this time. Making it through this tragedy will be an enormous task. The fact that their daughter, Caylee's mom, is being held for her murder is a double blow.
I look at this little girl, and I have asked over and over how anyone could harm such a precious child. Any child for that matter. When I see pictures of this beautiful little girl my heart breaks. I squeeze Xavier, my grandson, so much more these days.
I know that in this country people are presumed innocent until proven guilty, but if Casey Anthony did murder this beautiful little girl, her own daughter, I wonder what would make her loose all sense of right or wrong. Motherhood is so sacred. I've thought about my own daughter and my grandson. I wonder what I would do or how I would feel if I received a phone call and someone told me that my daughter was being held for killing her son. I just can't get that far in my thinking. I could never fathom that someone I gave birth to could take her own child's life.
My thoughts and prayers are with this family this holiday season. I'm so looking forward to seeing my grandson Christmas morning. I feel so bad that they will never see Caylee Marie again. From one grandparent to another, I pray that they be given the strength, insight and endurance they will need to move forward. Would love to hear your thoughts on this child murder.
