Editors introduction to Issue 2 of the newsletter

Greetings of Peace and Solidarity to you all.  Certainly one must begin this by giving sincere thanks to everyone who supported and contributed to our first issue of the P.U.R.E Report.  And though the production of this newsletter is still in a stage of infancy I am confident that with your continual support and contribution, we will achieve the growth and development that appeal to each of our readers. Now within the proceeding pages there are some very unique and rather compelling articles in which I believe you will find quite interesting. Indeed I am continuously amazed and inspired by all the skills and talent one has encountered behind the walls of Texas Death Row.  Now during the preparation of this particular issue, several news worthy things have occurred, For one Mr. Gayland Bradford received a stay of execution on October 7th, and his case has now been remanded back to the state level, so congratulations Mr.Bradford.  Sadly however, the State Sanctioned murder of Larry Wooton was carried out on October 21st, so our prayers goes out to his family and friends... and lets keep Cleave Foster and his loved ones in our Prayers as well. He has an execution date scheduled for January.  Now we certainly must give congratulations to Mr Anthony Graves who was released on October 27th after spending 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. His victory is indeed an exhilarating and inspirational experience for us all. So Anthony continue to stay strong and positive and what ever you do bro, try not to bite those fingers while enjoying those Bar B.Q ribs!  Now if you will allow me to share with you something I believe is truly extraordinary, and I will begin with a recent event that gives a good illustration on what I mean. On November 2nd the United States held the mid-term elections, where in the republican party obtained a very impressive victory.. Of course now lets bear in mind, this victory didn't occur because those in that party were such righteous representatives. This transpired because a particular power was utilized.. And simply put, their win was accomplished by the power of the people! And the issue at hand isn't about whether or not if you agree with the republican agenda or if you disagree with it, instead it's concerning the fact that people came together to achieve a common goal. So let's take a moment to ponder that phrase “The Power of the People” Infact speak that phrase out loud as you give contemplation..... The Power of the People.... The Power of the People... Can you envision how awesome this collective energy and un waving effort truly is?  Indeed each and everyone of us have the power to create unbelievable changes.. POSITIVE changes that can be beneficial to you as well as others. And it doesn't matter if you are Republican, Democrat, Tea Party supporter, Independent, Socialist or whatever your Political view may be. The Fact is: It is time to set aside our differences and strive together on a common ground to achieve a common goal.  Because the Power of the People can make a difference. And that difference can be made in any area of society, whether if its dealing with our political representatives, the fight against the death penalty, unfairness in the court system, Bigotry against gays and people of color, domestic violence or any where injustices may occur. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! The power of the people is truly extraordinary, so embrace that Power, Utilize that power, and endeavor earnestly to stop the division. Let's eradicate the disharmony of hate, and come together In a solidarity of love to make our society a better place in which we live.
