GREETINGS!!!!! .................... ALLOW ME.....................|
Chance has never yet satisfied the hope of a suffering people. Action, Self-Reliance, The Vision of Self and the Future have been the only means by which the oppressed have seen and realized the light of their own Freedom. QUOTE by MARCUS GARVEY;
Understanding my legal crisis seen so very small when eyeing the overall crisis of the Death Penalty here in Texas. Where all Morals are set aside in Order to say to all,
DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS
My name is Kenneth Wayne Morris, an African American presently incarcerated on Texas Death Row.
For 9 1/2 years I have sat facing the many struggles one can find themselves facing in such a place. I have chosen to venture into this path of writing because I see the urgent need to voice my situation. I know many have an interest to write a person in my type of situation and I say please DO SO! Because many here like myself have no support outside these walls. And to face a Death Penalty sentence is dehumanizing and mentally degrading especially when faced alone living in Fear.
Texas has executed over 190 men and woman and from where I sit it looks as though it will never end. Mostly, it is the poor who get the Death Sentence. In sitting day after day I do my best to stay focused and strong I wonder about the chance I never had and a future I may never see. I wonder just what lays ahead for my 9 year old son I had to leave in the same environment that created the poverty of mind I once had, what about his Future?
Will he be subjected to his fathers pass? nothing is for sure, but I ask those of society to look where many will not and extend the compassion and understand the love and support to the many of us facing these Tribulations. I have been compelled to compose this missive with all hopes of it being shared with other people of society. I know a change is coming! But how may of us will be killed by Texas Killing Machine before that change comes?
Remember, help comes in many forms. I am one of many who need your help and I sincerely ask that you extend what's in your hearts and Support a person on DEATH ROW.
MAY GOD BLESS US ALL!
