Quotes

...In the words of the Bible's 1st Corinthians 5:8: "Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth."
"Maybe they want to give a thing, not just money," she told The Atlantic. "It is a really nice moment in time, to see how people are reacting."
In an email message sent out by Amnesty, Robert King said: "Teenie believes me. She believes that the Angola 3 had nothing to do with her husband's murder. She believes that Albert Woodfox, Herman Wallace and I suffered years of cruel solitary confinement as innocent men...The state hasn't done justice by her, either. She's angry. We both are. Louisiana authorities are hell bent on blaming the wrong person. Well, I'm hell bent on setting him free."
"Most of these students are just coming into the world. I hope my story keeps them — keeps them on a moral path" he said
