"They'll get over it. They'll grieve, they'll be sad, then they'll go on, unburdened by a mother who can't care for herself. Let me die, or I'll be really mad."
After last night's execution, I'd like to add one more order for after I'm dead. See? I am like Kate Gosselin -- moreso than not -- I'm trying to control people even in my death. Really, perhaps it's not control, but more like a compulsive planner-aheader.
Anyway, should I get murdered -- which is a fear of mine every time I leave the gym at night -- I'd like for the accused just to sit in jail. No death sentence, please. I just don't feel okay about killing someone just because they did it to me. And I imagine jail is a horrible place, so if they are guilty, it seems best to leave them there. If they aren't guilty, it seems best to give them the phone number for the Innocence Project and -- hopefully -- let justice prevail.
I'm not very good at saying things succinctly, so I'll end with a friend's facebook quote that sums up my thoughts nicely. He's the author of Unconventional Wisdom and the owner of a FB Page samely titled where he is very fond of telling the Truth as he knows it...
