Colleen LaRose aka Jihad Jane Facing Life Behind Bars

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

Colleen LaRose, 46, known as Jihad
Jane also Fatima LaRose was born on
American soil- living in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania- and charged with crimes
pointing to terrorism. The accusations
are plotting to kill Lars Vilks-
Swedish cartoonist, supporting
terrorists, possible identity theft
and making distorted statements.

Vilks' cartoon of the prophet Mohammed
with a dog's body stirred people up-
though he wasn't named as LaRose's mark.

Al-Qaida's response to the drawing was
to put a $100,000 reward on Vilks' head,
and 50% additional compensation if

It's reported Fatima LaRose commented on
You-Tube that she was open to helping
suffering Muslim people. She sent e-mails
to co-conspirators proposing to offer
herself as a martyr and to use her
American status to avoid exposure,
according to a Pennsylvania federal
court's indictment.

The indictment asserts that she tried
to recruit others, raise funds on the
Internet and gave false statements to
the FBI. The accusation refers to
LaRose consenting to wed a co-conspirator
who wanted to set-up-shop, live, in
Europe. He is the one who pushed her to
go to Sweden- find a Swedish man- and
silence him, reports said.

If she's found guilty, she's facing
life behind bars. She was given a
court date of May 3, 2010.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
