This guy [link] is about to go to prison for an act he doesn't recall. 14-20 months for a crime committed while intoxicated and heartbroken and absolutely not thinking clearly.
I won't make excuses for what he did, but I will say he desn't seem like the type of guy who deserves prison. There's a lot to be read in his posts, both on the surface and between the lines. His post from earlier today Car wreck, abandonment, and 9/11 [link] was particularly striking to me. He discusses, among other things, the moment before impact during a car wreck - and you can't miss the metaphor.
I don't know the guy - but in some ways I can empathize, my husband went to prison a few years back for something he did while heartbroken and obviously not thinking clearly... and yeah, it's all about that moment before...
