Execution Day for the DC Sniper

The DC Sniper, John Muhammad, is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection in Virginia tomorrow.  

I still remember the terror that gripped the area when this rampage was ongoing.  I had returned from my grandfather's funeral in Jamaica on the day the shootings began.  I lived less than 3 miles from one site and frequented many of the other sites targeted that day.  In the weeks that followed I remember feeling like a hostage in my home.  I was on maternity leave with my 3 month old daughter.  My husband didn't want us going for walks, or to the grocery store, not even to the mailbox.  The randomness of the attacks made them all the more terrifying.

I remember my feeling of relief when they were apprehended.  I immediately packed up the baby and headed out the door.  A sense of normalcy was restored to my world.

As the weeks followed I became disturbed as I learned more about the snipers.  John Muhammad appeared to me to be a deeply psychologically disturbed individual and his accomplice, Lee Malvo, was just a child.

Despite those 3 weeks of terror and the many lives they destroyed, I feel no joy in knowing that he is about to be executed.  It's hard for me to feel joy in the loss of any life - regardless of their acts.

I do hope that for the friends and families of the victims this provides some sense of relief and allows them the closure that they need to begin to heal.
