Snowman

all these things 059

Sean drew me this snowman Christmas card in 2008. It is amazing to look at it right now and realize that was 6 years ago. I began writing him letters in 2007 and I have another drawing he made me that same year, it’s a palm tree at sunset. These early works are a reminder of how long we have been friends. How long Sean has been working and improving his artistic talent, I can really see it in his drawings. But it’s also a reminder of how long this innocent young guy has been locked away. How many holiday seasons he has missed out on. Away from family and friends, away from the natural beauty of the place he once called home.

 

 

About Sean & Emelia

In 2003 Sean O'Brien was wrongfully convicted in El Dorado County, CA and sentenced to Life Without Parole at the age of 16. We have been friends since grade school and are now married. Sean and I move forward together with the knowledge of his innocence, our faith in God, and hope that he will rightfully regain his freedom. Until then we embrace our journey wherever it may take us, cherishing each moment we have together and staying true to ourselves. This blog is about the past we share, our fight for freedom, life as it exists for us, and our path toward the future, whatever that may hold. Thank you for allowing us to be heard. God bless.
