The story has to do with a small not-for-profit organization that collects shoes from the community to assist people in Honduras who go without. They hold “shoe drives” and attempt to assist the unfortunate in Hondurus.
When the Anthony’s learned of the most recent shoe drive, driven by the not-for-profit group ChildrenofLove.org , they thought a nice gesture (and perhaps a bit of good publicity) would come from their donation of some of Caylee Anthony’s shoes.
Not so fast. The report of the Anthony’s determination to share the shoes came with its usual negative backlash from the community who saw the effort by the Anthony’s as yet another attempt for publicity and self-aggrandizement.
However, the Anthony’s were not swayed by the negative press. The Anthony’s donated shoes after all, but reportedly they were not Caylee’s. Rather the shoes the Antony’s donated were new soles. Not soles that had once borne Caylee’s soul.
New shoes were a better fit. The organization did not want to be associated with the Anthony’s. They didn’t want that kind of publicity. One cannot blame them.
Sad that the Anthony’s wear the soles of their worn out feet on their battered hearts for all to see and mock. I wish they would simply go quietly into that good night, allowing little Caylee’s soles and soul some rest for a bit.
