This month marks about ten years since Ross Ulbricht launched Silk Road. Sentenced to life in prison, he felt genuine hope of being pardoned by Trump. That didn't happen. A decade later, his family still works pretty tirelessly on his behalf which is kind of incredible to see.
The initial sadness and disappointment of not being granted clemency are fading. Life goes on. I’m doing my best to look at each moment as a gift, a unique experience to be embraced.

I know there’s a lot that’s been said about Ross and Silk Road and all that but what I’ll probably never forget is talking to his parents during and after the trial. Unimaginable.

Replying to @HowellONeill
Clarification: we (including Ross) were hoping for a commutation of sentence, not a pardon. • First-time offender • Case rife with corruption & misconduct • 2 LIFE + 40 years without parole • WIDESPREAD SUPPORT Learn more about Ross and his case at FreeRoss.org.
