30 Years

In the last 30 years I have:

graduated high school
attended college
graduated college
married husband #1
bought a house
had a baby
moved across the country
moved again
married again
had another baby
worked many jobs
attended many funerals
divorced again
met THE one
bought more houses
traveled to numerous wonderful places
made wonderful friends
went to loads of parties
watched all the Super Bowls, the halftime shows and the commercials
experienced the internet, cell phones, 9/11, Obama's election, and American Idol

For the last 30 years, Cornelius Dupree has been in the Texas prison system; convicted of a crime he didn't commit.  Today, he was exonerated and declared an innocent man.  He was 19 when he entered jail, only a few years older than me in 1979.  (VERY interesting read here---)

How do you give back to this man all those years he lost?

Very thought provoking, JuJu...what a nice photo of him, BTW. AND: I had a dream with you in it last night! You had bright pink hair, and we were stuck in the back of a very big container truck...then we got out and some sort of shenanigans (I don't remember) ensued!

word: niarne

Would you rather go to Narnia or Niarne?

God, Ju, this sends shivers through me.
