In 97 my dear friend #KennethFoster was sentenced to be killed even tho TX admitted he hadn't killed & didn't know a passenger in his car had killed. Perry stopped his execution w/ just hours to go but he's still in prison.

🚩 Click link. Say: #KennethFoster's death sentence was commuted by Gov Perry, but he's facing another now. His prison's overcrowded, putting him at high risk of Covid-19. He's served more time than murderers & he never killed. Please parole Mr Foster now.…

1. A message of #hope by #KennethFoster: "Today I saw a rainbow. I cannot remember ever seeing a rainbow during my time of incarceration, and really can’t remember where I was the last time I saw one. After a wild storm brewed for about 45 minutes,
2. then all fell calm, this rainbow set in the sky. Somewhere under the rainbow, I’m looking up trying to grasp a piece of that perfection. I’m reminded that there’s something greater outside of these white walls and shiny gray steel.
3. Even this arrogant beast I’m in the belly of must raise its eyes to this bow which bends over its towers- impenetrable by its machine guns and inhumane policies. Knowing there’s something more powerful allows me to never submit to something less than.

Like #NathanielWoods, my friend #KennethFoster was sentenced to be killed even tho he wasn't convicted of killing. He was already in the TX Death House when Rick Perry commuted his sentence. Kenneth will serve decades for a robbery at 18, but he is still alive. #RIPNateWoods
My friend #KennethFoster was sentenced to die even tho TX admitted he didn't kill anyone. His sentence was commuted to life. Court-appointed counsel failed to present compelling evidence of innocence for #TroyDavis (GA) & #NathanielWoods (AL). They were both killed.
TX guards moved #KennethFoster to the Death House earlier than planned. Because he wasn't convicted of killing, he protested his own killing by not walking to his unjust execution. I love Kenneth. His dignity inspires me. #DeathPenalty
