Thread Name: Obit: Myra Hindely
Subject: RE: Obit: Myra Hindely
I had never heard of her until this thread. I was a kid when it happened and we didn't get much international news. Now, on google, I've read more than enough.
I don't think it was a bad thing that she stayed in prison until she died; I certainly wouldn't have wanted her free.(The very thought of Charles Manson going free is horrifying!) However, I don't believe that it would be healthy for me or my family, if we counted one of us among her victims, to spend so much hate on her and wish great suffering to her with her every breath. It would keep us in a constant negative state of stress and, if we allowed it, she would have harmed our family, again, in the detrimental effects on our health. Just something to think about. I feel badly for the families that her death has obviously brought all of this to the forefront, again. It must be very hard for them.
