Week Six

This week we’ve been working with very heavy subject matter. In addition to our normal files, we watched a documentary about a woman who was wrongfully convicted of arson in the case of a house fire which killed her three children. She spent years in prison for a fire she did not start, while mourning the loss of her children. Many years later, new evidence and testimony came to light and she was released. It was hard to hear this story; I can’t imagine how difficult it was for this woman to sit in prison for a crime she did not commit, meanwhile mourning the death of her children. She will be coming to talk to us tomorrow afternoon. I’m excited to hear her story, yet find it hard to listen to such a heart-breaking experience.
