"Forgive us for not coming to her rescue..."

Natashay Ward has been sentenced to three consecutive life terms for killing her three young children in 2005. Both the prosecution and defense in Ward’s sentencing agree she suffers from a mental illness – yet prison is her “treatment”.

According to Ward’s pastor:

"You and I would agree, I think, that a mother would not allow her children to starve to death while she reads the Bible and be normal at the same time. She was not thinking of her own reality, she's living in someone else's reality, which may not even be real…

On the level of forgiveness, she may need to forgive us. She may need to forgive us for not coming to her rescue in time.”
