DEAD MAN WALKING
"In sorting out my feelings and beliefs, there is, however, one piece of moral ground of which I am absolutely certain: if I were to be murdered I would not want my murderer executed. I would not want my death avenged. Especially by government — which can't be trusted to control its own bureaucrats or collect taxes equitably or fill a pothole, much less decide which of its citizens to kill."
Made famous by the 1995 Academy Award winning film of the same name starring Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon (who won for Best Actress), this copy is warmly (and appropriately) inscribed to fellow activist, Elise Goldman. Goldman was a prominent environmentalist in Maine and co-founder of the Lakes Environmental Association. A nice association between' two women advocates for human rights.
