I ‘ve followed the live television broadcast of the Amanda Knox trail and, wonder about the whole story. There is always two sides to a story . For four years, Amanda Knox felt silenced. Italian prosecutors, who had accused her (and two accomplices) of murdering her roommate, called her the devil. The Italian press called her “angel faced killer.” Knox’s only rebuttals came during those brief moments of addressing the court. Even after Knox was acquitted in 2011 and allowed to return home to Seattle—after nearly four years in prison—she stayed voluntarily silent. Now, in Waiting to Be Heard, she is finally telling her side of the story.
A young woman’s soul-baring account of a nightmare turned real, of unimaginable horror and the miscarriage of justice that ensued, and, ultimately, of fortitude in the face of overwhelming adversity, Waiting to Be Heard is a memoir unlike any you have ever read. In November 2007, Amanda Knox was twenty years old and had been studying abroad in Perugia, Italy, for only a few weeks when her friend and roommate, a young English student named Meredith Kercher, was brutally murdered. The investigation made headlines around the world, and Amanda’s arrest placed her at the center of a media firestorm. Young, naïve, grieving at the horrifying death of her friend, and with little more than basic knowledge of the Italian language, she was subjected to harsh interrogations during which she struggled to understand the police and to make her own words understood. The subsequent trial exposed Amanda to international scrutiny and speculation, and she became a tabloid staple. In 2009, after an extremely controversial trial, she was wrongly convicted of murder. But in October 2011, after Amanda had spent four years in an Italian prison, and following a lengthy appeals process, the conviction was overturned. Amanda immediately flew home to the United States.

I recommend this book to all sci-fi fans. I couldn’t wait to read the book on aliens encounters. I am not usually a huge fan of science fiction, but I found this book intriguing. The story line was good and kept my interest. I enjoyed how the author writes, the language is descriptive and it has an engaging flow to it. The characters seem real and, I am very much looking forward to reading more of the writer books.

Know one is perfect, but let us all join together to create a cleaner world. The earth is important . What can we do to keep our earth clean ? Here is a poem written by a eight year old student for earth day.
By Veronica ~ 8 years old
We all litter every day in different ways.
If we keep littering our earth will be a big trash bag.
Let’s put out a call.
Most people don’t care.
My class would not dare !
Once my class put up a sign.
It said, “Please don’t litter. The Earth is mine.”.
Our landfills are overflowing.
Every day they are growing.
We see it making all kinds of motions.
We can try to stop this now, but how ?
Put your trash in the can !
