A Better Understanding

Tesia was a great guest, calm, collected, sure of herself and to the point. She has a lot to say about what is going on in her life, with her husband and with the other men in the case.0924130749

In many ways Tesia has given us a better understanding of what went on regarding the IRP6 case. We had talked to the other ladies regarding their specific problems, with their husbands, their family life, and children, and how life had changed so much from their perspective. Tesia had the opportunity and willingness to share with us the whole story, from the beginning. What went on and how they lived through it at the time. She gave us an account of the facts and how they were being unveiled, the uncertainty and incredulity all mixed together, right in front of their eyes; how they could not believe what was being revealed, how their lives were being implicated in a situation that they didn’t comprehend, as it was not of their doing.

She talked about getting right in to the issues, getting documented and educated to be able to best help her husband and the other men. How the process took a long time to evolve, and how, in the last minute, right at sentencing, it finally downed on to her. He was going to be put away; her husband was really going to go to prison. A man that she believed in, and had decided to spend the rest of her life with, was going to go away for quite some time.

You could hear the impotence in her voice, but also the hope. She knows that he is innocent, and she is dedicating all her spare time to support him, along with other families and the blessing of her church.

She talked long and clear, never backing out on her word. Once an Air Force supporter and graduate, she talked openly about feeling let down, not trusting the institutions. Those institutions that were her inspiration and her life for such a long time, now stand shady, in the doubtful side of life, in the not so trusting part of her spirit.

She is courageous, and she stands for her believes, for her values and her love. She is a trusting woman that will never trust again in the American dream. Her life was shattered and she is out there, in the world, denouncing the perpetrators, the very same administration that took her life, her dream, her husband away. Injustice has changed her views but not her values. Tesia still stands for honesty and valor, for love and faith, and in her own words, those values are keeping her sanity and her hope alive.

Next week we will have the last show of our IRP6 series. Yolanda Walker will join us to talk to us about her son Kyle, and how the absence of his father and the stress surrounding his life at this time, has made his health brittle, to the point of being life threatening at times. We are anticipating a great show once again.
