Pardon or respond, our dear governor! Please!


On March 4, 2015, I addressed you with my pardon request on behalf of my daughter. I had to do it by media after my many attempts to see you by visiting your office yielded no results. I understand how big the responsibilities are on your shoulders and that your time is precious and the community’s needs come first. You are a person of big heart and highest moral standards and work hard to lead our CNMI in the right direction. I admire you as governor. I believe in your thoughtfulness, professionalism and integrity.

My daughter Carmelita is still in prison and remains deprived of her five children. She has gotten no hope yet to join them in the near future. Each of my visits to her causes me a lot of pain because I cannot tell her anything negative or positive on the prospects of her getting freed. I am in the same trouble when I see my nephews’ asking eyes.
Definiteness is better than indefiniteness because indefiniteness is so torturous! I bow my grey head deeply and ask you for a decision on pardoning or not pardoning my daughter. Give us a definite response, please!

May Almighty God bless you! My family and I pray that you will be healthy and strong!
