Storyline

A widow's forgiveness. A killer's remorse. Bond of Silence is the true life story of a shocking murder and the amazing bond that came from it. Katy and Bob live a perfect life in a small close knit town. He's a respected lawyer, a renowned tri-athlete. She just had twins. It is New Year's Eve. Teens converge on the house next door. Always the good neighbor, Bob goes to shut it down. A confrontation occurs. Then he's dead. No teen comes forward. The media pours in. Headlines scream. Katy hunts for answers. But no one talks. A bond of silence covers the town. The police do an undercover sting and someone's caught. Ryan, a popular kid, tries to be cool, but the burden of what he did that night is unbelievable. Ryan and his attorney want to plead not guilty, but then Katy and Ryan meet. Where Katy should be a grieving wife, she becomes a supportive mother. Rather than berating, she listens. Rather than accusing, she comforts. And Ryan tells her what happened. Step by step. When Ryan ... Written by anonymous

Bond of Silence-It's Still the Same Old Liberal Ending ***
23 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I realize that this was a true story, the liberal ending is just too much for one to comprehend.

Here was a town who grieved with a widow and her 2 sons after her husband was viciously murdered on New Year's Eve. Once the neighborhood kids, who witnessed this execution,refused to talk, changes took place. This is essentially a story of attitudes within a town. It was disgusting how people turned against the widow as their livelihoods were being adversely affected by all the negative publicity.

It is also a study of determination by the widow to see justice done. It was just nauseating to me to see that after what she went through, she was all forgiving to this monster of a young man, who was so drunk, that he kicked her husband to death. Yes, it is true that he showed deep remorse, but he was in with the click who tried to prevent the truth from coming out.

A very sad and emotionally troubling story, not only of a tragic murder of a leading town's person, but the utter disregard and dismay shown by town residents when their lives were soon caught up in all the resulting mayhem. Yes, we are taught to forgive, but how much can you stand. This animal ruined the woman's life and made her a widow way before her time for such an event. In addition, her two young children were deprived of their father. Where are the parents of these animals? They were ready to hire lawyers to protect their drunken violent scum of children. This is what teachers have to put up with in too many a school system. Imagine dealing with this garbage? They shoot horses, don't they?
