During the many years I was bedridden/housebound I decided to try and do what I could for others. As I am opposed to the death
penalty I thought I should take a stand. I was in many papers as I fought for the lives of two men at Potosi. The governer
of that State refused the two men mercy, and it was only a few years after the executions that both he and his son were killed
in a plane crash.
After the executions I did not continue to campaign against captial punishment. I was traumatised by their executions, but
also felt I'd failed those who were victims of crime, or families of victims and had no one to support them.
