Don't travel to the U.K.; boycott these countries that sanction the release of serial killers. The Scottish government released the murderer of 180 U.S. citizens last week: the man who was, as the Scottish representative said in a statement, "justly convicted" of blowing up Pan Am flight 103. He was welcomed home as a "hero". Despite the pleas and the cries from the victim's families who represent those who cannot represent themselves, the Scottish government released this man as a "compassionate release". His cancer claims are dubious and uncertain. He seemed healthy as a horse as he stepped off the commercial jetliner that was sanctioned specially to take this murderer from Scotland to Libya. He was imprisoned for only EIGHT years: that amounts to approximately .0296 of a year for each person murdered (270 in total were killed). What COMPASSIONATE RELEASE did he show the 270 people he murdered; what COMPASSION RELEASE did he show to the victim's families who live with the pain and DEPRESSION from his actions? Experts believe that over 100 people aboard would have regained consciousness after the explosion to be conscious when the plan crashed into the ground. I won't travel to England again; this is just unconscionable.

During the funeral, I heard many people talk warmly about my...

Most days I can hold it together, at least in front of people at work. Today I...
