With every cell of my being and with every fiber of my memory I oppose the death penalty in all forms. I do not believe any civilized society should be at the service of death. I don’t think it’s human to become an agent of the angel of death. — Elie Wiesel

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.
— Archbishop Desmond Tutu
