life and death

Written by Sean

Recently my grandma Gerry passed away before I had a chance to find out what was really going on. A year ago my grandma Corine passed away, also without much forewarning. I really wish I could have been there to say goodbye to both of them, but sadly I never got the chance.

I hate that these people have taken so much from me. They didn’t just steal my freedom, they have stolen life from me.

I miss both of my grandmas. I remember the time my Grandma Gerry took me to watch the fireworks from Disneyland. I remember driving over there with her, just the two of us. She was so excited to show me the fireworks. It was getting darker as we drove over there but we still had to wait a little while before they began. Then my grandma was so happy to show me the fireworks. Its one of my only memories of her where it was just the two of us.

I don’t want my grandma to be gone. I don’t want to lose anything or anyone else. So much had already been taken from me. I feel so much loss. Why is it so painful. I just want the pain to stop. I cant stand being in this place, kept from all the people I know and love. I need to come 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.
