After four years in prison, Amanda Knox is coming home after her conviction was overturned today on an appeal.
Our blog and EndNotes column deal with grief, loss, illness and suffering. Amanda has suffered through all of these life experiences - while locked up for a crime she did not commit in a country where she did not initially speak the language.
May her return to home be filled with healing and recovery of an innocence lost and time to pursue what every 24-year-old deserves to pursue: her dreams.
Sweet dreams, Amanda. Your courage, we witnessed from afar, has been remarkable; your family's determination and support, beyond inspiring. May the days ahead be filled with joyful reunions, sweet grass beneath your toes and peace. Seattle welcomes you home.
