April 11, 2014 Amir’s lawyer finally learns about the December trial, conviction and sentencing. He immediately starts the appeals process.
It seems completely foreign to our sense of justice that this could happen, but I have long ago learned not to get angry about things like this. I have to see the positive in this, which I do. It all seems part of a dance, with each side taking the required steps until the dance is complete.

Except this isn’t a dance, it’s a family’s life and well-being. I can control the anger, but I just want it to be over.
