BOOK: A Saint On Death Row by Thomas Cahill
AN EXCELLENT,WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL book about a black man who was placed on death row at the age of 18. but the beautiful part of his story is his grace through it all. his forgivness and willingness to help others in the system like him. the book really opens the eyes to flawed judiciary system, especially in Texas. it helped me to put a finger on EXACTLY how i feeel about capital punishment. i never thought about it. but now i know i dont agree with it, under NO cercumstances. i feel death is a luxery even for the most hideous of criminals.as a christian i dont even know if i am supposed to have the OPTION of being FOR capital punishment. but i do know NOW on MY OWN ( with no religious influence)that i dont agree with it.
