Will you please read this, and pass along to everyone you know ?
Linda is trying so hard here to help a man who is not only innocent,
but also a victim.
For the past 5 years I've done prison reform work. I've helped
everyone I was ever asked to help. I've signed petitions, written
and made phone calls to prison officials; I've created web pages and
web sites for folks and helped others learn how to create their own;
and when I couldn't meet someone's need, I offered my shoulder to cry
on, an ear to vent to, and my prayers.
I'm not trying to "blow my own horn", here. I'm not trying to brag,
but I guess I am kind of trying to take most of you on a guilt trip,
because I've just been BEGGING several thousand people for whom I
will always do whatever I can, to sign a petition in support of
Executive Clemency for a good, decent and deserving man who has spent
22 years of a LWOP sentence for a crime he not only didn't commit,
BUT WAS A VICTIM OF!
I've been begging daily for 4 days and there are currently only 146
signatures on that petition.
Tomorrow, at 9:00 a.m. Central Time, John Moss' attorney, along with
a very good friend of his will be meeting with the governor's Legal
Aid to discuss John's clemency application. At that meeting, they
will be making the Legal Advisor aware of the existence of the
campaing to free John Moss AND this petition.
I am hoping and FERVENTLY PRAYING, that by the time the Governor of
Arkansas' staff looks at that petition they don't come to the
conclusion that not enough people to make a difference give a damn
what happens to John Moss.
I am BEGGING EACH AND EVERYONE WHO HASN'T DONE SO TO PLEASE, PLEASE,
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION!!!!
Please don't sign it more than once, but please ask your friends and
family to sign this petition and ask those of your friends and family
who don't have computers for permission to sign their names. You can
use your own email address for as many signatures as you want to - I
used mine to sign for myself, my husband and for John's mother,
Gloria. Also, if you're one of a couple who are both signing, PLEASE
do not sign once as John and Jane because that only counts as one
signature. Please each sign separately.
I promise that if I can ever do ANYTHING for any of you, I will be
there and do all I can, and I'm BEGGING YOU to sign this petition.
His web site can be accessed by either clicking where it says "Free
John Moss Campaign" in small letters near the very bottom of the
screen where you read the petition, or by clicking here
Thanks in advance for your help in this URGENT matter!
Peace and blessings,
