Dear Editor, While I'm very ill with fever and was unable to attend the watch at the state Capitol to stop the execution of Reginald Blanton, I did call Gov. Rick Perry's office and tell him to stop the execution. I saw myself on my favorite show, Democracy Now, but I could not be happy with it because of his life and others that will be lost. I was in front of the state Capitol at our weekly anti-war protest with a 350.org sign last Friday. I was sick then and unable to sleep that night, but I still got up the next day and marched to end the death penalty and afterward joined Greenpeace's 350.org protest at UT. If it wasn't for a friend who helped me carry my signs, I wouldn't have made it. She got us a bicycle cart to take us to our bus stops afterward. (Thanks, Mona.) I see very few people (if any) except at protests, but I don't want to see or hear from my sister or brother-in-law as long as they support the death penalty. It's better to be alone even if I'm very sick. End the death penalty now!
