Alabama condemned him to death. He said he was headed for Higher Ground.
Beautifully expressed, Lee, as always. Shame on us as a people for refusing to rise above our desire for revenge. This is the second recent execution (or attempt) opposed by the victims' family members. It provides no benefit to the state. Why do we continue to allow it?
His generous spirit is a witness for us all. Add to that the forgiveness extended by the Epps family and we cannot be anything but ashamed of this backwater, brutal machinery called government.
Thank you, Lee, for your telling of this painful truth. May Jimi’s beautiful soul rest in everlasting peace. Something we are all denied as long as this continues.
Thank you for this fantastic work, Lee. I hope you are taking good care of yourself today.
Lee, do you know if those assisting were in fact EMTs and nurses?
