Fla. Executes Female Serial Killer STARKE, Fla. (AP) - Serial killer Aileen Wuornos was executed Wednesday, more than a decade after she murdered six men along central Florida highways while working as a prostitute. Wuornos, 46, became the 10th woman executed in the United States since the death penalty resumed in 1976, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. She was pronounced dead from lethal injection at 9:47 a.m. in Florida State Prison near Starke. ``I'd just like to say I'm sailing with the Rock and I'll be back like Independence Day with Jesus, June 6, like the movie, big mothership and all. I'll be back,'' Wuornos said from the execution chamber. The Rock is a Biblical reference to Jesus. Gee - and here I thought it was that wrasslin' guy..
Jennifer aka The Working Mom said this: I've been having trouble sleeping the past few nights... maybe its because of our upcoming move. Or because of my job. or...??? Last night I was stuck thinking about Rachel. So much, that I had to really fight the urge to go in and wake her up just so I could hold her. (Figured she'd be kinda pissed at me if I did that) ;-) Right before we went to bed, I stumbled across a book my sister-in-law had made for her. It was a picture book - pictures of Rachel with everyone in our family... Each of my parents, Sam's parents, our siblings, her cousins, etc. The book is about 1 year old(?) and the pictures of Rachel... my heart dropped... she doesn't look anything like that anymore. I realized looking at her picture time is just zooming by me. I know you've probably heard the same story from many parents. But until you see how quickly these kids grow... You don't notice a day. or a week. but when you look at a picture... maybe it was taken only a month ago... and you realize your child has changed so much... it scares the hell out of you. It hits you over the head like a ton of bricks, every minute that has passed. And every minute means this child growing away from you. Your measure of time suddenly becomes so detailed... Every second... every instant... So fast. Her accomplishments amaze me. All the things she can do now. All the things she understands. Half the time I don't even know where or how she learned something. I'm in awe watching her grow... but the other half of me only wishes the days were longer... if only you could stop time...just for a little while... I can't wait to hug Moira when she gets off the bus today.
