It all began in June of 2008. A child missing. A mother partying. A news media frenzy. All the ingredients present for the American public to sink their teeth into. The mother was charged with murder one, child abuse and murder two. Nancy Grace seized the story and started referring to the mother as “tot mom”. Later a body was found. Everyone was a scapegoat. The parents of the “tot mom” were even put through hell and who knows the part they played. The father (George Anthony) even left town, went to a hotel with the apparent intention of committing suicide. Just a ploy? Who knows what happened? Certainly not the American public, and those following from other countries as well…we only knew what was presented with the bias of the presenters. Yesterday, July 5, 2011, the “tot mom” was found not guilty of the murder and child abuse charges. Of course, no jury could find her not guilty of providing false information to law enforcement. So most likely she will walk later this week because of the time she has been in prison awaiting trial. The American public is outraged. “No justice for Caylee” they cry. The tot mom will most likely get a book deal, a movie deal, surround herself with only people that support her and live happily ever after with more money than most of us have, according to Nancy Grace and others. My facebook page filled up with cries of outrage and injustice. These are the times in our lives when it is so difficult to understand the workings of the Universe and God. I, too, was shocked over the verdict. Of course, I also understand what the media does to such cases and how a jury has to know “beyond reasonable doubt” that the facts presented prove the crime was committed.
When I went to bed last night, I thought of these things. Even if the tot mom did not kill her own baby, someone did or something happened…there is a dead baby. What lies beneath the surface that could make this all right? How can something like this happen with no consequences?
The answer I received was a verse from the Bible: Be not dismayed. God is not mocked. For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. This is a definitive explanation of the Law of Karma. The Universe is in Divine Order. RIP, baby Caylee. You gave your life for a purpose, even if that purpose is unknown to us.
