Wrongly convicted, the defendant waits for his sentence to be passed. Death by electrocution. For a crime he did not commit. The end of the road is near, and the last chance of being freed has passed. His appeal had been rejected. The evidence against him was stacked too high, the prosecutor’s case too thick.Continue reading “What is Truth?”
The bailiff procures the vote from the jury. The courtroom holds their breath. The prosecutor looks hopeful, while the defendant holds his face between his hands. “The jury finds the defendant… guilty.” And with a bang of the gavel, the defendant is taken away.

This past week I was told a story about Mount Everest. All of ya’ll willContinue reading “Climbing Everest”
