Jeffrey Havard Blog Update May 23, 2013by Jeffrey Havard on 05/21/13
Sorry it has been a while since I last blogged. I have had some personal and legal issues that have kept me busy.
I want to thank all of you for your support, comments and questions. It really means so much!
Mr. Blanchard, As a child, my favorite pitcher was Roger Clemons. That is what began my love of the Red Sox. Then they went to the World Series in 1986 but lost to the Mets, but the loss didn't matter because by then I was a full fledged member of the Red Sox Nation!
Mickey, Thank you for the kind words. Although the Red Sox are in a slump right now, I am confident of a strong comeback!
Kay, The Cardinals have always been one of my top teams, not before the Red Sox, but a favorite just the same. I also wanted to tell you that I heard about Sherry and am so sorry for your loss! I am told she was a wonderful person. And thank you very much for your kind offer!
Uncle Greg, I miss you all so very much and hope the day is soon when this wrong is righted and I will see you all. Love to everyone!
Randi, Thanks so much for the music!
I would like to make individual comments to everyone but to save this from becoming too long, I would like to share with you a little about my daily life and my hopes for the future.
I spend my days reading. I read everything from books on Psychology to Hunting/Fishing magazines.
I spend a great deal of time listening to music. We are allowed MP3 players here. I love all kinds of music, old and new. Led Zeppelin is my favorite band, but I like music from almost every genre. Putting on my headphones is a mental escape from the horror that I find myself in. It drowns out the noise (mostly) and I can just be away from here for a little while.
I also enjoy phone calls with loved ones and corresponding with several supporters.
I do my best to keep myself busy and mentally challenged.
If there is any sense of right in this world, I will someday walk out of here and I will never take anything for granted ever again. I would live every single day to its fullest.
My goal for the future is to speak out for others who remain wrongfully convicted. I would like to do this with a friend who was also wrongfully accused but fortunate enough to be acquitted. We would like to tell our stories to anyone that is interested in the state of our Judicial System. I think it is important work and I would like to be a part of it.
Other than that, I would just like to live a quiet life.
My sincere thanks to all of you who sent me messages, you have no idea how comforting it is to know I have you out there fighting for me.
I promise I will not be so slow in making my next entry!
I guess I will close this with the words of a friend - "Believe"!
