Great idea to help a cause right here on this board! Please read on!
Think for a minute about everything that you did from 1977-1997. Now,
erase it all. ThatÕs 20 years gone Ð BOOM Ð just like that. IÕm only
21, so that would be a LIFETIME.
I saw a play that really moved me called ÒThe ExoneratedÓ. In short,
the play tells the TRUE stories of people who spent years on death row
before being found innocent and set free.
The play ran for years, but unfortunately, isnÕt running anymore. But I
just saw Court TV is doing a film-version of the same play with some
bigtime actors/actresses i.e. Danny Glover, Susan Sarandon, etc… It
airs on Jan.27th @ 9PM, but IÕd check their site to be sure if itÕs the
same in your time zone or whatever. www.courttv.com
IÕm hoping that I could collect more peopleÕs opinions here so I can
print and mail them to my Congressman and even my Governor. Letters
from actually people are powerful! HereÕs a link to another
documentary, which gave me the idea of how to get involved!
So if you have thoughts on the death penalty, please share them here.
Just imagine if it was you, or your friend, or family sitting innocent
on death row. FYI One of my favorite songs has the line, ÒIf youÕre not
going to make something better, than youÕre just IN THE WAY!Ó LetÕs
all make something better right now.
Thanks so much!
