Is 25 years a long time? I watching a live stream of an 18 year old named Samuel Vonachen who was sentenced to life in prison with parole in Hutchinson Kansas.

The attorney said he was eligible for parole within 25 years. Is 25 years a long time? Sam Vonachen will be 43 when he's eligible for parole so at least he won't be too old when he comes up for parole.

I live just around 30 miles from where that courthouse is and I've been in there getting my tags done and titles to my vehicle.

I watched the live stream as well. Yes 25 years is indeed a long time. At least to me it is. I was 4 years old 25 years ago. So he has a lengthy prison stay before he comes up for parole.

I wasn't even in kindergarten or could read or tell time 25 years ago and I was outside playing in sand and eating sand. lol

When Sam Vonachen comes up for parole I'll be 54 years old and my dad will be 95 if he lives that long.

My mom will be 87 if she lives that long too and I hope they do.
