I don't feel angry at her, no honestly i still love her. I am worried thought, worried sick, she doesn't know how bad the world can be and she isn't prepared for what can happen when you aren't careful. I know I told her never again - but one day I am going to get her back, I will win her heart again and make her fall even deeper in love with me, and we will have the life we dreamed of.
Until then though I am going to enjoy myself and what I have right now. It is the perfect time, I am in the perfect place, and I am going to surround myself with new friends and new people who will bring out the best in me.
Keep an eye open if you follow this - I am going to be starting a few new blogs.

What I remember is we were basically in agreement that we don't think he should have gone free, (it came down to the difference between involuntary manslaughter and self defense.) I get that he had been security and had every legal right to carry a gun, but did he really need to follow Martin? I may only be 21 but to me the smart move would have been to call the local authorities and then follow from a huge distance. If Martin had actually broken in that would have been a different story and argument altogether. But since he didn't at the time and Zimmerman confronted him with a gun it should be his fault.
My friend tried to say that if you were facing someone who charged at you would you pull a gun if you had it? And of course my answer would be yes, (but only after I kicked the crap out of them and had them on the ground with my gun to keep them from moving.) Zimmerman pulled his weapon which caused Martin to be uneasy which in turn lead to Zimmerman killing him. The self defense was on the part of Martin facing a man with a gun, not Zimmerman facing a hostile person. Zimmerman may not have premeditated the killing of someone, but he damn sure had time to think about it while he followed a poor kid. My friend also says that even though he hates the verdict, he has to agree with it because he truly believes in "innocent until proven guilty", well man where was that for Martin?! There was NO evidence that he was breaking into house, NO evidence that he had malicious intent in the neighborhood, and people rally behind someone who took a life of an innocent kid because they don't think the evidence is enough to say he deserves to be in jail?
Shit, the country is beyond messed up if I'm only 21 and can see that, but judges and juries can't. Yes we are innocent until proven otherwise, but Zimmerman can't prove that he was in the right, and because he is the one standing he should have gone to jail for shooting someone. Self defense or not (I will admit I lost interest in the trial a while ago) he didn't have proof that Martin was committing B&E and so he never should have confronted him. If he was a rational person and not a friggin moron with a vendetta against someone who fit a profile an innocent young man would still be alive.
To be completely honest I don't have faith in our judicial system anymore, be it the judge or the jury who should have put their foot down, Zimmerman might be innocent, but he still followed and killed a young man, that would have been enough evidence for me that he needs to be locked up for a while, and (the best part) with his wife now leaving him and since we've all seen double jeopardy (can't charge him for the same crime) I bet he is laughing at the world cause he did it and no one is the wiser except his wife, who again, is leaving him, so
SUCKS TO SUCK ZIMMERMAN.

So I was reading the article that Kelly Lynch wrote and on the whole I agree. The parents (and the kids) are the ones really in the wrong here. If it had been me I would have sued every god damn one of those kids parents for damages. He has photo evidence, I'm sure there is DNA all over the house, man he could have gotten a new pool in his home, or started a charity, or gone to Europe! My parents raised me to be respectful of people.
-Always say please and thank you
-Be polite to the host and mindful that you are a guest
-Never show up empty handed
and other good things like that - but to break into someones home and destroy it, that is a disgrace. More and more I joke to my friends and parents about how I have "lost faith in this generation" and honestly there is no excuse for what they did and I really do feel that there is a gap between those starting college as freshmen right now and those in high school now. There seems to be this respect and understandings of life that are lost. Maybe that's because when I was growing up as a younger kid I was raised with solid values and didn't have all the temptations and distractions kids have now. This is not to say I didn't have my distractions; I watched TV (a lot) and read books, oh and when my family finally got a computer I used to check my email once a month and maybe if I was lucky I could go on an online game - depending on if I could connect to it. I also went outside to ride bikes, and played baseball and had adventures with a solid gang of friends, and camped in the woods to lay and watch the stars and shit like that.
now back to the issue; kids. If I had ever done something bad, yeah, like Lynch I would have been dragged to the persons door and I would have apologized and spent the rest of my foreseeable future working to help repair the damages, and if I finished early I would have been locked in some form of solitary doing praying to be forgiven and move past it.
While I agree with most of what Lynch says, she writes

Well, I have been 21 for 3 hours now, and so far all I have done is play battlefield 3, watch some of indiana jones, and have my girlfriend get a party at UCSB to sing me happy birthday. I am having trouble falling asleep. I should power down and try to rest.
