I don’t know about you, but I am slowly coming out of the Casey Anthony trial nightmare and into the land of the living. I’m beginning to let the anger and the sadness go.
I also feel better after watching an interview of Jeff Ashton, that Kathi Belich, of WFTV, recently conducted. I encourage you to watch it.
Not only is Jeff Ashton a terrific lawyer, he’s a very, very nice person. He’s modest, kind and very respectful of the jury’s recent decision.
I don’t want to spoil your enjoyment of the interview, so I won’t reveal all of the gems he shares, though there is one item especially worth repeating here.
Toward the end of the video, Kathi asks Jeff Ashton, “What advise do you have for those of us who are so upset and sick over the outcome of this trial?” He tells Kathi that the best thing we can do is to turn our anger into some kind of positive action. Work for/support new laws, be an advocate for children, be a Big Brother or Big Sister, etc. Turn the anger energy into positive action.
Then he says, the best thing we can do going forward is to ignore Casey Anthony.
The best thing, he says, when Casey Antony gets out of jail, we should turn our collective backs on her and walk the other way.
This, says Jeff Ashton, will be the harshest punishment for Casey Anthony! Ignoring her will hurt her more than anything in the world.
I need to do the same – to stop writing and thinking of this case so much. Well, there are a couple more stories I want to write about it, but I don’t want to give Casey Anthony the satisfaction of this blog’s attention, so I’ll try to phase this case off this blog….
Of course, there will be things about the case that will pull me back…. I can’t help it!!!! But I’m going to try to turn to more positive and encouraging topics; focus on other news-worthy things that I enjoy writing about. (Can’t go cold-turkey off this case!)
Here is the wonderful video of the wonderful Jeff Ashton: http://www.wftv.com/video/28498264/index.html
