The popularity and interest in the Casey Anthony case defies logic to some people. Have you noticed that?
Have you been asked “why do you care”, too? Or maybe you’ve asked yourself why. Maybe your husband or wife asked you, “So, why the obsession with this case?”
I have been asked.
Recently a good friend of mine – curious about my interest – pressed me for an answer. She said:
“With all the unrest in the world, all the turmoil, strife – all the heartache and misery that surrounds us each and every day – unemployment, the economy, the environment, not to mention the fact that every day so many children die or go missing in this country – why are you so interested in this case? Aren’t you just getting caught up in the media hype that you believe created this circus in the first place? You could be blogging about so many other things, why this case?”
It got me to thinking about what is really important to me. And I fully realized that somehow I have fit this case into my life – in an important space in my life.
There are many reasons why this case fascinates me. The first of which is I am obsessed about seeing justice for a little child that I don’t know but fell in love with just the same.
And I wonder how you would answer? Are you a little obsessed, too? Are we all a little obsessed?
I’d love to hear your thoughts on why we have to care. What intrigues you and keeps you interested in the case?
