Death Watch Journal for Kevin Varga - DAY 12

I was listening to a program on the radio trumpeting the technological advances of the last hundred years or so, I find it amazing that we as a society can reach around the world via the web yet fall back upon the barbarism of capital punishment to teach the killing is wrong. We do not slap a child to teach them that to hit is wrong do we? With all of our advancements there are some that the state feels are irredeemable, what does this say for us as a whole?

I am writing this journal for my own peace of mind but who knows what impact it will have on those who read it. I hope that I can convince even a single supporter of capital punishment to change his point of view. When it is no longer thought necessary to kill those we refuse to redeem that is when we as a society will become enlightened. Here is to enlightenment in my life time…
