Bad Boys

Dear Oscar,

not a day goes by where I don’t think about you in some way, shape or form. Whether it’s a song I hear on the radio, a feed on twitter, a message of support in our groups, or when I chat to one of my ‘Oscar’ friends, my thoughts are with you – everyday!!

Man, I wish I could give you one of these bad boys!!

Love

Forgiveness is a decision

Estas palabras son para todos aquellos que expresan pensamientos y
sentimientos negativos hacia Oscar.
Ojalá les ayude a modificar la linea de sus pensamientos.

“El perdón es una decisión, no un sentimiento,
porque cuando perdonamos no sentimos más la ofensa,
no sentimos más rencor.
Perdona, que perdonando tendrás en paz tu alma y la tendrá el que te ofendió.”
~ Madre Teresa de Calcuta

Marcela en Patagonia

English Translation:
These are my words for all those people who express negative thoughts and feelings towards Oscar. I wish it’ll help them to change their minds:
“Forgiveness is a decision, not a feeling, because when we forgive we no longer feel the offense, we no longer feel resentment. Forgive, when forgiving your soul will find peace and will give you peace to your offender.” (Mother Teresa of Calcutta)

There Is Still love

Ozzie, I know that in this world we don’t see a lot of loving, care nor trust amongst each other. How I wish people could see you the way I do, our golden champ with his golden heart. I thank God each day for sending you into my life for now I am able to show you that there is still love, hope and most of all a precious future for you. Do not despair for your time to shine is almost upon you. Remember that he who kneels before God can stand before anyone.

I am (once again) speechless

My dear boy – my friend,

This time, I quite don’t know what to say to you – anything I say will sound so wrong and petty! I am (once again) speechless over how awful and cruel you have been treated. My heart is broken and I can’t find the pieces …..

I am worried about you, my son – how much more can you take? I know that you are a strong person – but even you must have a limit of what you can stand. I haven’t the right to ask you for anything, but please, I beg you not to give up! Try to find the light in the tunnel and start to walk towards it – don’t loose your faith in God! We are so many out here loving and caring for you, we believe in you and we believe in love. Try not to put any of your valuable energy on the “haters” – it will just drained you. Please focus on all the people who love and care for you instead. Love is an emotion that built up and strengthen, while hatred brakes down and destroy.

As I have said before, I feel so lost and empty after this last cruel decision not to release you (on the 21:th of August) – I feel so frustrated and can only imagine how you and your beautiful family must feel? Just breath for a while, breath in and out … in and out – it’s not easy, I know, but please try … in and out …..

I know I have no magic words to make you feel better right now. So I just continue to tell you how much you are loved. Not only by your wonderful family and true friends, but by thousands of us, your supporters. We support you for the kind and humble person you are – NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE THAT!!!

You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you my son!

Walk Through Fire

Dear Oscar

I write this letter with aching heart. For at this very moment my heart should be rejoicing at the thought of your first night at home, after 10 months of isolation and enforced separation from those you love. At this moment, my head should be filled with tender images of family giving prayerful thanks, a nourishing meal shared, and loving reunion. Instead, my heart is heavy, and my mind is wrestling with the cruel reality of yet more days and nights confined by prison walls. As my head grapples with this new low in an already shocking saga of man’s inhumanity to man, I am struck by the grave irony of a man’s rights being exploited by one who bears the word ‘Justice’ in his title, at the whim of the ill-informed and those who profess to represent the rights of the most vulnerable in society.

I really shouldn’t have been shocked. After all, recent chapters in the story of your life are similarly punctuated by examples of injustice, corruption, bias and abuse of power. But, shocked I was. And shocked I am glad to be. For the day I am no longer appalled by the depths to which some are prepared to stoop to further their own self-serving motives, and slake their perpetual thirst for revenge, is the day my heart has turned to stone, rendered incapable of the finer human emotions; sorrow, empathy, compassion, love and human kindness.

Oscar, nothing we say or write, can possibly express how sorry we are that you are faced with yet another obstacle to overcome. I and my fellow supporters are still staggering under the callousness of this new injustice, so we can only imagine how you and your loved ones feel about this brutal turn of events. But whilst you must be reeling, we hope and we pray that you will not be crushed. We hope and pray that you are afforded new reserves; of faith, hope, courage and resolve – the resolve to continue to seek for justice and the right to pursuit of healing, happiness, and a life rebuilt.

My boy, I so wish you could see the depth of belief in you, and feeling for you. I wish you could know just how personally we take each injustice. I wish your heart could absorb the strength and support of those who really do care, and I wish you could know just how loved you are. For these are good people motivated by sincerity and humanity, who recognise like qualities in you, and who put to shame the motivations of those who wrong you. Those who are driven by ego, power, jealousy, revenge and hatred. Those who are blind to their own inhumanity and truly to be pitied.

Over the last few days, we have experienced the full spectrum of emotions; outrage, disbelief, despair, frustration, helplessness, empathy, compassion, hope, resolve and love. We talked, we raged, we wept. But we also reminded ourselves that our anxieties are the least, and that by giving our fears credence we deny that God is in control. So now we will square our shoulders, we will take a long deep breath and we will absorb the by now familiar faith and quiet dignity of your family. We will remind ourselves that you have overcome so much in your lifetime, and that you have already travelled so far. You have a long road ahead of you yet, but you will never journey alone. You have the loyalty and love of your family, your friends and your global family of supporters who would walk through fire with you. But much more than that, dear boy you are the child of a great and merciful God, who loves you and has promised to never leave you.

Oscar, as hard as it may be, you will keep moving forward and your life will one day regain a sense of normality. We hope and pray that day will come soon; a day when justice prevails over injustice, when loss is replaced by acceptance, when loneliness is eclipsed by love, and when pain and anguish will be superseded by serenity and peace of mind, We long for the day when your spirit will soar once more, and new life affirming chapters will be added to the unfolding story of your life. A life full of love, happiness and peace of mind. A life worth living. A life rebuilt.

God bless you Oscar.

Reach the summit

I found this in a little Church in Wengen on the day Oscar’s release was thwarted before I knew about the details.
I also found a visitors book in the Church & wrote in it ‘Thinking of you Oscar from afar’
