The Roller Coaster Ride

The Roller Coaster Ride

The state of Georgia is set to execute Troy Davis in about 4 hours. He has had stays before
but this time it looks like only a miracle will save. My thoughts and prayers are with Troy at
this time, but even foremost is my prayers for Troy’s family.

I have met Troy’s family and been to their home. I have known his sister Martina since the
early nineties. Martina has given years of her life to save her brother’s life. She is an angel
sent from God to help Troy and the countless number of others through her volunteer work
with Amnesty International.
Martina has been dealing with cancer for a number of years but nonetheless has labored
gallantly for the cause of human rights.

What is wrong with the State of Georgia? To kill someone when there is such a great
question of innocence is immoral. What Martina and her family are going through is cruel
and unusual punishment. Georgia on my mind!! Georgia will receive a black eye throughout
the human rights world that no state, not even Texas, has seen before.

Wake up Georgia, you have 4 hours to come to your senses and bring this crazy roller coaster
ride to a proper ending.
