Casey Anthony is free Sunday.
Before the verdict, angry people bought plane tickets to Orlando and camped out to hear the verdict. After the verdict, angry people chanted “justice for Caylee!” outside the courtroom. Angry people called radio shows and wrote blog posts about how they will boycott books or movies about Casey.
Cable news shows with clocks counting down Casey’s release date discuss how vile it will be if she makes money on TV from this alleged murder. Angry people plot to figure out where Casey Anthony will go upon release and how they can hurt her.
There is a lot of energy around this.
Could we use that energy to thank a case worker? Or pray for a child in danger? Or pray for this sweet baby?
Could we use that energy to give time and money to causes that help prevent child neglect? CASA. Family Promise. Dozens upon dozens of others.
Could we call our friends who are foster parents and ask what we can do today? Make their family dinner?
Caylee’s death is an unthinkable tragedy. We know Casey had something to do with it. And we are angry. Could we use that energy to do something about it? That is justice for Caylee.
