Urgent! A Special Request For An Innocent Man Scheduled For Death, This Month, On September 21st

Troy Davis needs our help! 

"Hi Josh. I was wondering if you could post something about supporting Troy Davis and getting people to sign the petition against the state of Georgia putting him to death on 9/21. This makes me so sick! We've got to save him! I have posted it on both Ryan's and my page (on Facebook) if you'd like to copy and paste his picture and the website where people can go. Thank you so much! Hope you're doing well." Kelly Ferguson. 

I'd like to introduce you to Troy.

Take a look at his face. Kelly's a dear friend. Her brother's Ryan Ferguson. Most of you have noticed on here and elsewhere the fight I've put up for him. Ryan's a dear friend of mine, but this isn't about Ryan or me ... or is it? 

Look at his face. He's a man, a human being, a living and breathing life, God's creation. He's not just a story, a headline, a name, a number, a case file, an inmate, on death row. He's flesh and blood. He's God's creation. He's our brother, someone's son and a friend to others. Does he have kids? A wife? Please consider all of this. 

Innocence is innocence. Exonerating one of us is a victory for us all. Killing one of us is ... yeah. You guessed it. It's like killing us all. Please help us stop Troy's execution. 

Admittedly, I don't know as much about this case as Kelly, but if she believes him and supports him, so do I. It's that simple. I trust her ear, her heart and her character that much.  

Please. Go to the following link and voice your support for Troy. Thank you.
