I recently wrote about the release of the West Memphis Three after serving time for a crime, sexually assaulting and killing three young boys, that they did not commit. I am equally distraught over (and inspired by) the story of Troy Davis and his supporters. While Davis’s death is tragic, the support and dedication shown by his diverse supporters gives me hope for the future of our country.
I sincerely hope that we are able to focus our attention and positive energy toward righting other social, cultural, political, and systemic injustices.
