As I woke Saturday morning, I turned on the Saturday morning news. As I wrote in my last blog, Saturday morning changed many lives here in the Denver metro area. Jessica Ridgeway was abducted.

On Friday, October 12th, 2012, Westminster Police along with the Arvada Police, the C.B.I, and the F.B.I., gave us the answers to our questions. Jessica Ridgeway was abducted not only by a cold blooded killer, but a very sick individual who is now revealed to us as a monster. Jessica’s body had been dismembered.

Wednesday was no different. We took Teddy one block over to his trainer, Patrice. It was a typical training session and when it was over, we picked up everything we needed for the week.

I get caught at a red light behind the one guy on the road doing the speed limit. I realize that my chances of catching up to the red truck, are fifty-fifty at best. The light changes and off we go, screaming down the road at thirty m.p.h. I see the red truck ahead in the distance.
I can get out of my van and pound on his window. This is where I’ll tell him to take my stuff back home. No, I can’t do that, the light isn’t long enough, and it is about to change. I don’t have enough time to do this, and I’m not willing to lose him after all my effort.

Now, I feel the intensity of the last few weeks rushing through my veins like water rushes through a hose. I feel the panic and injustice smacking me in the face, the way a racket smacks a tennis ball. I realize that I have emotionally reached my limit.
