Troy Davis was killed today. Just a few short words from a few judges decided a man's permanent fate despite the serious doubts about his guilt. He could be my brother, my father, my husband-- my son. When will stories like this be 'once upon a time' and not here, now, in my own backyard? A painful reminder for me to do my part.
Rest in Peace Troy Davis. I hope you find it in the elusive hereafter. God knows you didn't find it here
