The man of Panama!
The United States had stepped in today, Journal. My husband, is gone. They had tried over and over to stop him. Manuel thought his power was limitless. My husband, my money, my home, it is all gone. It is time to go now. We are currently waiting for the foreign ministry to give us our safe conduct passage. Perhaps we could go to Cuba, or maybe the Dominican. I do not want to leave without him though. Journal you must understand! I'd go to the villages in the mountains and to the poorest areas of Panama to collect cent by cent the dollars my husband needs to pay for his defense. What is a women to do? Do i stay here and help my husband and risk death? I have three daughters, a son in law, and a new grand baby that I must put first. I have to. I just do not trust America's justice system! Journal, please, hear me out. I need help! Too much is happening too fast. I shall leave with my family, but I will remember my sweet husbands laughter, and the warmth i felt when I stroked my thumb across his cheek. My husband will return one day, and i shall wait for him. Justice will be served. Until then, I'm gone in search of a new unwilling life.
