Alphabe~Thursday "L" is for Loose Lips

Lord, set a watch upon my lips,
My tongue control today;
Help me evaluate each thought
And guard each word I say.
~Hess

I really have to work at this. Do you? We all know that loose lips can sink ships and now I have just witnessed what can happen when one remains silent. After watching the Casey Anthony trial for a month I just about bit my tongue and swallowed it upon hearing the verdict. I am in disbelief.


In memory of Caylee Marie Anthony

I was going to send you an email about this. I know most of Florida is horrified that Casey will not spend her life in the state prison.

I wonder if her parents know the truth about what really happened to their precious granddaughter, and what they really think of their worthless daughter.

La said...

Yes, I do need to work on this.

Oh Ames. I am just sick over this miscarriage of justice, too. We left our porch light on for her last night.

Reasonable doubt does not mean no doubt....

Jo said...

Love the quote; need to continually work on it myself.

I didn't watch the trial because it tore my heart out to think about the MONSTER mother...and the jury's verdict is a crushing blow. I'll never understand why justice and the law are really two different things.

That photo has haunted me for years now...

That poor darling child, who was a blessing sent to her family....

My first feeling was of disgust and shock at this verdict, that I had to go and pray inmediatelly, because hate was beginning to get a hold of me!! I'm a little afraid this is happening to many times already, with OJ, Michael Jackson and who knows...people might think you can get away with murder as long as there is no DNA! I feel heart broken for that gorgeous little toddler!! Sad, very sad. FABBY

Ah yes, my loose lips have gotten me into trouble more than a few times.

I haven't followed this at all but read about it after. It's so sad and she even looks so sad in the picture here. All we can hope for is that the woman gets what she deserves, one way or another.

Amanda said...

I can't believe it either. The last time I felt this way was with OJ Simpson.

Splendid Little Stars said...

of course I need to work on that! It's a matter of being conscious.
The Caylee/Casey saga is sad all around.

Gattina said...

I don't know this case, but apparently it must have been terrible !

Deb said...

It's tragic but she is in a safe place now. The whole thing makes me ill.

Jennifer Rizzo said...

I cant believe the verdict either..... It's tragic.
I have to check my tongue everyday!

Jingle said...

awesome quote,

there is always sadness in life, wow.

Jenny said...

When I feel passionately about something, it is hard to keep quiet. I've had to learn over the years to not blurt things out...there is often too high of a price to be paid for impetuousness!

Your memorial picture brought tears to my eyes.

Lovely post, Miss Ames. You are a gem.
