Dear Mothers...

On April 12, exactly one week from today, I will be sitting with my sister-from-another-mother, Marilyn Shankle-Grant. We will sit together that day as two mothers; two mothers brought together and bonded by two things: murder and love.

"Not What You Think" by Paul Storey, Texas Death Row Inmate #999538

A dear friend of mine who is incarcerated at the infamous Polunsky Unit, home of Texas’ Death Row, is the author of the second installment of ELLA’s New Voices series. I have known Paul now for two years and have visited often. Paul is a gentle giant and thoughtful soul whose worst mistake in life was not to stand up to his friend when he learned his plan for the day. Paul did not kill anyone. This is not a mistake he should die for.

ELLA Shares New Voices....

The ELLA Foundation is pleased to announce that we are turning over our blog to the inmates, inmates’ families, and victims of violent crime that we serve. A large part of what we do at ELLA is two-fold: we strive to educate the public on the horrible and often inhumane experiences of those in prison and to help those who have been affected by violent crime to find their voice and to use it to create good in the world again. What better way to achieve either goal than to let those ELLA embraces use our blog?
