OJ Simpson: An American Tragedy 20 Years Later

 It’s been 20 years since the infamous OJ Simpson murders of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. The horrific crime that was committed and displayed on national television left a mark on all of us in some way. I happened to have met OJ and Nicole a few years prior to those murders when I was invited by a Playmate to attend a birthday party for OJ at their Laguna beach house.

 I’ll never forget Nicole sitting on the beach playing with her small children and watching OJ be the life of the party with suspicious eyes. My girlfriend was friends with OJ’s bronco driving buddy, AC Cowlings and she informed me that OJ was notoriously cheating on his beautiful wife, thus explaining the watchful eye Nicole kept on him.

 I naively kept calling OJ Joe, as in Joe Namith because I had one too many margaritas and kept thinking he was the one that did those famous pantyhose commercials in the 1970s. It was apparent I had to lay down and sleep off those margaritas OJ had made for me and he told me that I was welcomed to go inside the house and do just that.

 I found a comfy spot in the kitchen that had a window seat that I could curl up on and just shut my eyes for a bit. When I woke up I found Nicole in the kitchen starring at me and I proceeded to rattle on about how strong those margaritas were that OJ made me and how much of a lightweight I was when it came to alcohol.

 She didn’t say a word and I somehow felt that she may have thought that I was involved with OJ and quickly got back to my friend outside. I have always been a very intuitive person and the energy I felt that day told me that there was a lot of insecurity and drama revolving around this couple, energy I had no interest in being around.

 Turns out my instincts were right. Like millions of Americans I watched this drama unfold before our eyes on television and kept seeing the suspicious eyes of Nicole looking at me in her kitchen that day. I felt so sad to know what she must have been feeling and how those feelings led to such a tragic end for her.

 I often wondered why my life crossed paths with such a person as OJ Simpson, what did it mean for me? What was I to learn from meeting such a person? I’ve always paid attention to such things, because I felt that I only had my intuition to guide me through life.  When we are aware of the energy around us good or bad, it will help you understand what direction you should go in life. I knew the energy wasn’t good around OJ and Nicole and never was around them again, but I still had a sad feeling about Nicole.

 When her life came to that horrific tragic end it had an effect on me just because of what I felt that day in her kitchen when I looked into her eyes. And now 20 years after that crime somehow justice has been served knowing OJ will never see the light of day outside of a jail cell.

 Due to his arrogance and lies, his karma caught up with him even though he was acquitted of those murders. He remains in a Nevada prison for theft of his own memorabilia, which he was dumb enough to try and steal from a sports dealer at gunpoint.

 It was exactly 13 years to the date he was acquitted of the murders. Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison with eligibility for parole in nine years and is incarcerated in Lovelock Correctional Center.

 This gave some solace to the Goldman family that was awarded millions in a civil suit, but could never collect from Simpson because he was always dodging them. However, nothing can bring back the lives of Nicole and Ron, but I think most people today are happier knowing OJ got what he deserved and it was even comical to know that he did it to himself.
