"My One Son"
by Deborah Smith
My son was murdered at the young age of 39. I received the devastating news from a phone call from Oklahoma, I live in Alabama. I did not get to tell my only child goodbye, and this haunts me to this day. April 20, 2014 will be three years. The man that shot my son in the head with a pistol only spent 8 months in jail. I am not a wealthy woman and could only do very little for my son who was not able to defend himself. The man who murdered my son did have money to back him. It was declared as "manslaughter" by the judge. Justice is not fair for someone that cannot defend themselves and they only went by the murder's story, which did changed 3 times in court !! Surely Karma is not the only choice of punishment while he lives freely on earth. I have lost my Mon and Dad, but the loss of "My One Son" shook my entire world and changed my life completely. Please do not have sympathy for me. That is not what I am wanting. I shall continue to grief in my own private world.
