A Personal Reflection on the Murder of Troy Davis

My sadness and anger last night was only rivaled by the nights Stan Tookie Williams was murdered by the state of California and the Afghanistan and Iraq wars started. I've been an activist for 11 years and these nights have been the hardest. The brutality, depravity, and senselessness of this system never cease to amaze me. Yet, hundreds of thousands of people were moved to action to save Troy Davis. Our only hope is to continue in Troy's foot steps and re-double our efforts in the fight for justice. We are all Troy Davis. We will never forget Troy Davis.
