Day 004: I’ve had so many questions

August 25, 2008 | Monday

MORNING HAS COME! I have been up all night. Reading. I randomly read chapters from the Bible. Through the years, I’ve had so many quesitons about existence and how things come about, both the physical and the metaphysical. Also am reading a fantasy novel. I don’t actually read novels much, and when I do, it’s of a certain type and unbelievable: dragons and wizards, queens and kings. Fantasy aside, I usually read to learn something. I thought that tomorrow was Labor Day so did not write, but should have!!

I have everybody to tell about where I’ve been moved. I have thought to let everyone know gradually, as I answer letters. Since I lost my privileges, my postage stamps are limited. Then there’s how to say it. I’ll know what to say.

It’s evening. I spoke to Maverick, who is next to me. His guilt has  come into  question,  however he stands days away from the death chamber. He remains hopeful about his chances for further legal review. Another man also accused of the crime for which Maverick is on Death Row has come forward with the truth. You’d think that would be enough to get review, but the truth of the matter is that technicalities in the law will get you killed just as actual guilt will.

A camera is mounted on the wall, and his days are to be monitored because he is two weeks away from execution.

    It’s so incredible : on your “Day 3”, I was wondering what kind of books you were reading. And on the fourth one, you gave a detailed answer!
    So, it’s easier to imagine the readings which are accompagnying you during your long and lonely hours.

    I’m sorry for your cell’s companion, Maverick. What he is living must be so difficult, too. At least, as per my personal opinion, he should have the right to a certain privacy.
    Share my friendly thoughts with him.
