Years ago, I would have considered marching into the District Attorney’s office and arguing…
What do you mean that my son doesn’t qualify for the “Diversion” program? Everybody’s kid at that party got “Diversion.“ So now he’s the only one that has to wait for a court appointed attorney to contact him, then he will have to stand before a judge, he’ll probably get a parole officer, and then to top it off…it will always be on his record. This is not right!
But today, my march is different.
The letter we received in the mail is just another step in this journey. Maybe this will get his attention.
Probably not, but maybe.
Dear Sweet M,
Society really does have rules you need to follow. As you continue to fight the system, you will need to prepare yourself for some excruciating lessons. It is hard for me to watch you go through this, but it will never change my feelings towards you, Sweet M – I love you, and I always will. Certainly, someday you will tire of this stubborn fight you seem to be having with the society. My prayer for you is that you will wave the flag soon. But in the meantime know that my hand is right there at the the top of this stupid hole you seem to be digging.
Love you, Mom
