I found a Winner!!!

It was so refreshing to read something of substance. This novel is so sad at times and uplifting. After you read Mr. Hinton daunting story, you can appreciate the simple things in life that we all just take for granted. This was truly one brave man who had to find a way to cope through the many years that he spent on death row. I found joy in reading about how he had to find a way to live on death row because he refused to give up. It was sad to hear about the horrible jail conditions that these prisons had to deal with on a daily basis. Being in jail is not a great experience but to be labeled and charged to live and survive on death row had to be the hardest. He writes about the condition in jail and how different inmates are treated from other inmates. I just cannot imagine how you can deal with residing in a cell where you can experience someone being put to death, the smells, terror and mistreatment of how you must look the other way to try to remain stable during these turbulent times?. Mr. Hinton saving grace was his love of God, his best friend Lester and his mom and of course Bryan Stevenson. While this story has elements of the movie, "Just Mercy", it was much more difficult and degrading and residing in another level. I wish they would make this into a good movie. I would love to meet this man and just listen to how he continues to live and try to forgive and forget and make a better life for himself. In the end, we must all come to grips with being thankful for what you got and how blessed you are to live a slice of humanity. I praise the work of the Equal Justice Initiative and Bryan Steveson and the work that they have done and continue to do. I issue a challenge for all of us to try to help those who are less fortunate. I contribute to their campaign and always try to keep ahead of their challenging work. God Bless you all!!!!!

Everyone should read!

I didn’t know things were THAT bad when it came to freeing an innocent man, and I feel responsible for never knowing. This book was incredible, and I want to buy a copy for everyone I know. I’ve already told my book club about it, and it might be a book that gets added to our future reads.
