2withspirit.com… I expected this blog, from the title alone, to be in regards to 2 people; a couple maybe. And it is. Once the blog loaded the initial impression I got was that it was a woman writing. Mainly due to the layout of the blog itself and the cursive text. I didn’t know what to expect from the written text until I clicked on the “about” link.
I wasn’t far from wrong. The blog is actually about a woman, who has lost her husband to a high speed car chase by the police. It’s quite interesting reading. In so much as the author, in her blog, goes through all the raw emotions that are usually associated with sudden death of someone close, and it’s quite touching. The entries are well written, the writing is sometimes scattered and sometimes well thought out. But I put down the raw emotion behind the writing to the sometimes scattered entries.
I believe that the basis of this weblog is an outlet for the author, for her emotions, her thoughts as well as her crusade. She has achieved many good things through her persistence, her never ending belief and it is refreshing to see a person be able to make a difference, even when it means that the person is constantly challenged at her beliefs and, at times, thought she wasn’t making a difference.
The template that the author uses does compliment her writing style, it compliments the blog content. The links all work, except on the about page, where there is the link to listen to something. I couldn’t get that to work. I don’t know if that is because I use Opera as a browser or not.
I had a hard time writing this review, only because I believe that police are there to do a job and they did their job, unfortunately it resulted in a loss of life, but everyone makes choices, those left behind usually have to live with them. Also because the author has, with her crusade, pointed out some holes in the police department that should be straightened out. Overall, this blog I believe is sometimes different. It offers a different view of what we view of the “role” of police officers, even if it is the lack of role after the incident. Definitely a blog worth checking out. I do hope that the author finds the peace that she deserves. 2 With Spirit
