A letter from Average Joe

In this day and age of modern civilization doesn´t it seem funny, that the most powerful and technologically advanced nation in the world still has and feels the need to execute men and women ?
The same nation which imposes on other countries, what human rights should and should not be.
And is ready to go to war or impose sanctions on any country that does not take heed.
Perhaps its because the technology has out grown the human ability to grow both mentally - and consciously to match the 21st century.

It would be nice to believe that the Death Penalty was that simple of a mistake. Tat it was something flawed is in the intellect and could easily be corrected - by pointing out rationally the flaws !

But the truth is that Death Rows - the Death Penalty is the United States skeleton in the closet. Their dirty laundry. But, they no longer even try to hide it. They flaunt it. With the same arrogance, as much else they do - in dealing with the rest of the world. A case of do as we say not as we do. But slowly - surely opposition has risen - and the rest of the world has became aware of the Death Penalty. Groups have formed - people from all walks of life. Be they rich or poor - any race. Combining their voices in protest against a system which is not humane. And those voices are being heard.

Oh, the US still holds tight to their ways. Refusing to change. Keeping the Death Penalty in place. But, the voices of groups and individuals in opposition are causing concern. And the more voices that join in - the greater that concern will be. Till one day - they will realize - it´s not just a concern - it´s a real problem. And then, change will occur.

And while we await this change you should know - all who oppose and speak out against the Death Penalty ! You have already made a difference ! For the men and women who populate the many Death Rows across the USA. You have shown us there are people who care ! Which gives us hope and strength to flight onward ! To survive years of solitary - confined - existence.

do you want to know where I live ? So read the next part please ...
and feel free to ask what you need to know....
