Right up front, let’s establish that I have a long-running reputation as “Merry Sunshine” with a pair of rose-colored glasses permanently affixed to my face. So, if you read this article and feel I whizzed in your corn flakes, please bear in mind it’s a lot like broccoli. You may not like it, but it30

Throughout the Casey Anthony trial I strongly held the position being molested as a child is not an acceptable defense for murder. I did not take that position to help persecute or prosecute Casey. I heard from many other molestation victims who were just as offended as I had been at the use of that30

 Be sure to take the poll at the end of this post. This murder trial of Casey Anthony has become quite a convoluted mess, at the very least. I tend to be known for turning the prism around and trying to see every facet I can, so here I go. Some would say I’m playing30

NOTE: This is strictly the opinion of the writer and in no way asserts innocence or guilt on the part of the subject. Now that I have the disclaimer out of the way, I’d like to clearly state my opinion on the manner in which Casey Anthony’s team of lawyers has decided to play their30

The past three days have been quite rewarding and enlightening on my journey to bring awareness to the areas of domestic/intimate partner violence, child sex abuse and sexual assault.
