Dead man walking
So I saw the play Thursday night and I found myself thinking of critiques we give each other in class. Some people were really very convincing and others I thought overdid it. However, overall I liked the play. Knowing it was a true story, I though it was interesting to see capital punishment from a side I've never really seen. I don't know anyone who has been on death row. I had a teacher in high school who had a friend who was murdered that said she was always against capital punishment until she lost her friend. I thought about that during the play and it kind of made it a little more surreal for me. It is a very interesting topic that we should think about more than we do.
