please pray that they, don’t executed Derrick Charles on May 12, 2015. Give him another chance at life. He was young and foolish, broth up in a home of mental illness. What he done was wrong and he can’t change that. Giving him another chance at life can prove that people can change. He such a young man.

Please Help, Licho Escamilla, he doesn’t deserve to die. Who are we to judge and sentenced people to die. We are definitely NOT GOD to issue anyone to die.. Especially Licho Escamilla. He was young, people make mistakes when they are young. Please Help Licho, his childhood was not a good one, as many of these men have. I have attached Licho Escamillas’ Website.. Please help him.
