Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

A call to Vigil for Sean Kennedy

On Tuesday February 10, 2009 a candle lit vigil will be held on the steps of the State House (Gervais Street Side). This is a vigil to honor the memory of Sean Kennedy and support his family - but also a vigil for justice as his murderer is scheduled for a parole hearing

and is eligible for release.
So come out on Tuesday night, come to support and console his family, come if you believe that justice is needed for this tragic loss. Come if you value human life and dignity. Come if you find it repugnant and against the very dignity of our humanity that someone is allowed to commit such a crime based on bigotry and prejudice and yet held to a lesser account by a state because it doesn't recognize the virulance and damaging qualities of such bigotry and prejudice.
WHEN: Tuesday, February 10, 5:30 until 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: SC State House north side, at the intersection of Main St. and Gervais
Be there....

I wish I knew how this guy only got a five-year sentence. This is someone truly dangerous who does not need to be out on the streets anytime soon.
