Amanda Knox Come Home!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Amanda Knox was like any other kid. She grew up right had a roof over her head. She had a family that loved her and would do anything for her. Like most kids she graduated High School and went to college. In college she decided to study abroad in Italy. Most of us would love to study in a different country. Who wouldn’t, it would be a new area new life style. The best part was you could do it for four years then come home.

Like for most college Students College is fun. I know that most say the studying is too hard and challenging, don’t get me wrong the study is very hard. College is every kid’s dream for young men there are women all over. For the young ladies there are men all over. Let’s not forget the parting. Even the late night studying is fun because you can study with your friends and socialize with others.

Amanda Knox’s experience was a little different. Amanda Knox was convicted of a murder in 2009 along side her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito.  Now imagine being in a different country with no family and nobody, no mental support at all. To make it worst when she was tried in court and the cops had little to no evidence on her. She was convicted of murder and sentenced to a 26 year prison term.

This was a college student with no experience of the world going to a federal prison.  The worst part is the cops had nothing to put her in jail with they just did. Since Amanda Knox's trial was in a different country. Amanda Knox was out of luck because the United States couldn’t interfere. To make it worst her family couldn’t come see her because who can afford to fly to Italy to go see their daughter. Not to mention the strict rules the Italian prison she was in had for visitors.

Amanda had to stay in her cell 23 hours a day and got to go out in the yard for one hour a day. Now imagine how un healthy this was for her body no vitamin D no sun. What about her mental state being by herself 23 hours when she was use to being around a college full of students.  I could imagine that she was definitely a target for other inmates do to her tiny size and young age.

Amanda Knox got very lucky on October 2, 2011 when the Italian court decided to throw her murder conviction out and release her from prison. She finally got to see her family and return home. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like knowing you were coming home. The plane ride would feel like the first Christmas again. What about her family that has to be the best moment in their life.

When I look at Amanda Knox and what she went through. It not only makes me appreciate my life it also makes me see the big picture. Life is a gamble one day your winning and you’re on top and the next day you’re losing and on the bottom. Watching Amanda Knox case made me realize that life is short life can be good one day and the next you could be wishen you weren’t in it.  My advice is to live your life and be wise and enjoy it because you only get one and everything changes on a timely bases, you never know when that wrong turn can come.
