Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 3.29.17

Under the able leadership of our Chairman the Board has begun to take a closer look at our history. Over the past 28 years we have had leaders who could be the envy of any free world organization. And yes, we have stories to tell, amazing stories and we are determined to tell them. We want to tell them so that we do not forget our history and the men who are no longer with us and also so we might learn from them and be inspired. We are proud and grateful to our trailblazers and founding fathers.

To begin with a positive, we were delighted to see the AP article published today about Senator Hank Sanders. Lone lawmaker crusades against the death penalty in Alabama. There is absolutely no doubt that who Senator Hank Sanders is and what he does has made it possible for us not to give up hope over the years. He has encouraged us not just by words but by deeds. We are forever in his debt!

Project Hope is the voice of consciousness, our way of expressing our humanity which is like the scales of justice; that kind of balance, two points of view, from two sides. We pour out our thoughts to fill the pages to the rim with our sweet as well as our bitter feelings, thoughts, pains, shames, love and point of views.
