Concrete, Steel, and Paint

I recently learned about this documentary and rushed home to look it up. All I could find was an amazing website and trailer. I watched the trailer and the film looks SO incredible! From what I understand about it, this group of prisoner works with a group of victims of crime to create a mural for the community. What a tough topic to take on! This shows the amazing power that art has to connect people and stimulate healing. I will be continuing to research how to see the full length of them film. It is truly inspiring to see people taking the initiative to start tackling these complex topics.

Troy Davis Story CNN (execution)

I think it is absolutely appaling that our Justice System can put a man to DEATH without concrete evidence. The fact that this happened and the Supreme Court wouldn't even re-open the case gives me absolutely no reason to trust that this system we have works. Please watch and educate yourself. This is a CNN report.
