miss my family, friends and my home. It’s difficult to not be in Oly with everyone. However so many here have made me feel so welcome and it feels like home too.
I love Anchorage. I love the people. I never thought I would say that. Strangers have been so kind to me. Everywhere I run into locals who wish good for us, from the GCI employees, staff at restaurants, baristas, cashiers, and shoppers. The recognition is bazaar to me and feels unreal. When people are so kind, I just want to hug them and cry, but just like picking up strange babies, I know this is not socially acceptable as well. So I graciously thank them the best I can, typically I’m tongue tied.
I am hoping to have a little more freedom as time passes. It’s difficult at times for my third party, she is essentially on house arrest too. Strange, since no other case (we have found) has placed a third party on house arrest with the defendant. It’s punishing a citizen who watched the system fail, and stepped forward to help. Now, she is punished for getting involved in government affairs. She is a strong, smart woman who sees it clearly. She is not intimidated. I love that about her.
My daughter and I want to ride our bikes, venture out and explore the parks and downtown. After my Judge said I was even less of a flight risk than before, I am hoping that they will be more lenient, and lift some of the restrictive conditions; and not treat me as sentenced to house arrest, rather let me live as “innocent until proven guilty” while on bail. Goodnight to all of my angels
