I know the importance of making the most of today, and not dwelling on what could’ve been, but it’s something that I struggle with on a daily basis.
No matter all of the things I’ve forgotten, I still get some of the most random thoughts, and it takes me there. No one really plans to end up on death row, at least I haven’t met a single person who said that ending up on death row was a life goal and trust, I’ve met some interesting characters (interesting is one way to put it.)
I’m guilty of taking things, and people, for granted at some point in my life, and I’m sure we can all say that, not knowing I would find myself in this position.
Maybe it’s okay to dwell on the “what could’ve been”every now and again, as a reminder to appreciate what you have today.
From David and his friends on this blog, we wanted to address the subject of the victims and loved ones of people on Death Row directly.
In supporting David to create this blog, ourselves and David are very aware of hurting people affected by anything that has led to people being on Death Row. We worried about this and continue to be mindful of other people's suffering. We all have families and cannot imagine the suffering you have gone through and continue to go through.
Nothing that we publish is intended in any way to undermine this.
We simply want to draw attention to the injustices of the death penalty system as it stands, and we are doing this through the experiences of one person we know well.
Everyone suffers and we don't want one person's suffering to cancel out another.
We hope you understand.
