In Memory of Kay Kim's Blogs

Dear, Mike Peterson, I Forgive You


 

Mike Peterson murdered my sister, Kay, on May 26, 2010.  He then killed himself.

Mike Peterson murdered my sister, Kay, on May 26, 2010. He then killed himself.

 

 

“To rise, first you must burn.” ― Hiba Fatima Ahmad

 

–Dear, Mike Peterson,

 

When you were alive, I never quite knew the day of your birthday. Kay typically informed me of the date, “Oh, did you know it’s Mike’s birthday today? I’m having cake and ice-cream later on; you’re all invited.”

 

I didn’t want to go, but I did. For Kay, the kids, Mom and Dad, because it was the right thing to do, because I thought you might have changed, because I so desperately wanted to love you and for you to love me back.

 

You sat at the kitchen table in silence, disconnected, discontented, inside your own dark world like a character out of one of Kafka’s books You sat taking bites of cake as if you were alone, as if you were isolated inside your own mind. Didn’t you know we were there, too, and your boys, and your gifts wrapped beautifully inside blue tissue paper, and Kay. Always Kay… trying to make everything better.

 

I remember staring at the multi colored balloons floating about the room thinking, ‘I should pop them, I should take out a pin right now and make them all explode, I should press one hard against your face for you to take notice, wakeup, stop eating your stupid cake for a moment to allow others inside your miserable, self-absorbed universe.

 

Did you ever care about anybody except yourself?

 

How long did you plan the murder before you decided to take Kay away for good?

 

Did you plan it from the beginning? Did you notice her walking around the Miller Hill Mall and declare, “I will kill that girl one day?” Or did you see those big brown, sweet eyes and recognize you’d be able to control, manipulate, & own her like a pet dog?

 

Why did you do it? Did you hate us that much? Was Kay ‘s life that insignificant? Did you utter a prayer, a benediction, ask for mercy before you pulled the trigger? Did you have any repentance or remorse or humanity inside your body?

 

Was it your intention to make us suffer every birthday, holiday, anniversary, the rest of our lives?

 

Sometimes the pain is so excruciating, it’s as if my heart has shed its skin and will never grow back the way it was.    No.      Never.

 

But in the midst of this darkness, I’ve come to the realization that you did not win, you did not destroy our family.

 

Because Kay rises from the ash every single day without you, in spite of you.

 

She rises like those vibrant balloons from your birthday party; a million voices lifting in air.

 

It’s the oddest thing, but I remember the date of your birthday now. Perhaps because I think of your mother on that day and wonder if she misses you, mourns you, wants you back inside her womb to begin again.  And I’m deeply, profoundly sad for her.

 

I wanted you to know I forgive you, and if you were in prison, I would have delivered this letter to you in person.

 

Yes.

 

I.    Forgive.    You.

    Forgiving is one thing but understanding is quite another, and you wonder how one man could absorb so much happiness so that it vanished from his own life and was drained out of those around him. How he managed to project himself in a manner that your sister felt drawn to marry him, however reluctantly, however disturbingly, is one of those things which I can never get my head round. Hugs

    Such a sad, twisted, damaged man. Who felt the need to share the sadness and the damage.
    And failed. Despite winning.
    Love that you can forgive him. Which is part of the reason he failed.

    Oh Kim
    This is huge… So huge that you can say those words. I cannot imagine really what it encompasses, what it means. Does it mean you release the hate. That it is replaced with some kind of pity?
    I can see in his one pitiful , spiteful , delusional and evil act just as you say… How Kay’s spirit ruses, and is never forgotten. The power of goodness that came out if his evil is difficult to fathom. But you, your family and the walk you have come thru, and the walk you must begin again every day is testimony of that goodness. You are amazing and I hope we meet in person one day.

    So terrible, so tragic. Forgiving is something so hard, so personal. It is such a gift and yet also terrible in its own right, especially when the person you forgive isn’t there to face you, to hear the words, to receive this great benediction and be brought to their knees by its weight.

    You are my every single day hero.

    Kim, you are courageous and a much better person than I. I have prayed and prayed and prayed for years. I cannot yet forgive the monster and certainly will never forget my beautiful Italian friend Kay. Every day, I think about that afternoon when she was leaving work and I was on the phone. I wish that I could turn back time and get up and hug her again the way I planned. I think that first I have to forgive myself for “taking for granted” that she would be at work the next day and that I would hug her then. I have to forgive his brother Gary (who I lived next to for years ) with his drunken, obnoxious comments after his brother’s heinous act. I know that some day I’ll get to that point. I do pray for his parents as he had become his own “person”, if that’s what you could call him. Before I leave this Earth, I know that God will soften my heart and answer my prayers to forgive. I’m just not quite there yet.. xoxoxo

    You. forgive. him.

    I am in awe.

    I did not expect to see this post.

    I did not, ever, think this would be the place on which you would lay your pain…in the empty space between your pain and his. That you acknowledge him at all is a marvel.

    Much as you or your readers…your fans…would like it to be different, Kay would forgive him too. Love is a strange beast. We cling to those we shouldn’t, despite what others see clearly. We offer, as you have done, forgiveness to those who do not deserve it.

    I applaud you, friend, not only for what you have done, but for the path you had to travel in order to arrive at this exact spot.

    Perhaps your enormous gift-forgiveness to the unforgivable…FOR the unforgivable—has more power than you know. Surely it unclaws ugly, clamped fingers from your heart, but also it releases Kay from her own fingers, clamped around her own heart.

    You are brave…in a way that defies definition…and loving to a fault. I love you back, if simply for the fact that you do, every day, what I fear I could not. You rise above, even when you feel you can’t…even when you feel you haven’t.

    Hold tight, love…you have done it all right. You have relinquished his ability to control you and have, instead, reclaimed the space that belongs wholly to your love for Kay.

    Bravo my friend. I love you.

    I too forgave my abuser, not that he knows it, I don’t need him to. I was trapped with so much fear until I forgave – it instantly made me strong, instantly made me realise I had overcome all that I had endured.

To be able to forgive Kay’s murderer shows how open you are to God’s goodness, His Grace. Yes, I’d feel sorry for his mother and family, too, but didn’t they even suspect there was a problem?? As for Kim, indeed I know she’s smiling on you now and marveling at her sissy’s generous, loving spirit!

    Here is what I do know for sure. I was supposed to see this post on your blog. Some days I have to remember our God is a God of GRACE. And he imparts His GRACE and I need it.

    And I know you Dear Woman, is someone who God put in my life.

    Kim, it took me about 3 years to forgive him. I kept asking God to help me to
    forgive, and it took me that long to get rid of my hate and bitterness.
    God forgave me and died for me when I was still a sinner, so I can do
    the same for God and myself. It made me feel so much better, kind of
    like a new person.
    Thank you Kim for writing this blog, it was so inspiring for all of us.

    It wasn’t until I was in my thirties that I realized that forgiveness is more for you (the forgiver) than the person being forgiven. It allows you to breathe instead of suffocate, and I’m so glad you’ve done that, Kim. It’s interesting…as soon as I saw that photo, I thought about Mike’s mother. How once he was someone’s little boy, and how she must reconcile that little boy with who he became. I can’t even imagine.

      Dana,
      it is quite sad.
      I’ve often wondered what his mom says to people about
      her some becoming a murderer.
      I pray for his soul.

    You are so incredibly beautiful inside and out, and so much of a better person than I. I’m not sure I could ever forgive. He was obviously a very tortured man and I pity his mother…..but I still don’t know if I could open my heart wide enough to allow forgiveness in. This speaks volumes of your character—-you are strong and forgiving…something I tend to lack. Yes, you are far better than I. Love you, lady <3

      Dear, Marcia,
      this took 5 long years of
      overflowing w/ anger and hate.
      I’ve noticed in this blog post
      as I read it back that I didn’t utilize
      the word ‘Fuck’
      that was the first time!
      xxx LOVE to you.

    Such powerful words and the act of writing them so brave. Forgiveness is hard, but necessary. And trying to understand nearly impossible at times. All we can do is let go and move on, inch by agonizing inch.

      Sometimes one must just do it…I mean, forgive.
      …because I shall never understand the vicious acts of people in this world.

    No, he certainly did not win. You keep your sister’s memory alive with such a passion that you make everyone who reads you feel like they know her and your story. I have little doubt that you telling her story probably saved others. Good always wins over evil my friend. We are the good guys, and God has our backs.
    Love always, C

    I know it took days and months and years for you to get to this point. I applaud you for being able to forgive. You’ve just released his hold over you. Brava, my friend. xo
