Andrea Yates

That poor woman and her poor mother. DH is furious with Mr. Yates. DH blames him for this tragedy. DH is also furious with the legal system and the media for seemingly letting him off the hook. She should not have been alone with those children.

I wonder if the jury will sentence her to death. IMHO, that would be the merciful choice, but then I like to believe that the dark mother will gather Andrea in her arms and hold her until her pain is gone. Then I think of her mother and how I would do anything to help Chunguita live and how devastated I would be, how hard it would be to let Chunguita go. I don’t know how I could live with myself if I were Andrea Yates; I’m sure they would have to put me on constant suicide watch.

What a terrible tragedy! It breaks my heart.
