Tess J said:
I read it last evening, slept with it beside me, woke up this morning looking at this small book and its cover, and began thinking about the impact Dominique Green's life will have on me and on the many people who will read it. I believe it will be passed on person to person and he will touch our lives in the same way that he did to his fellow inmates, friends, the author, his supporters, and others including Desmont Tutu. When you've finished reading this, follow up with "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor Frankl. (This title is also available as a soundrecording)

In descriptive, poetic words, Cahill tells of Green’s chaotic and troubled life, which led to his participation in an armed robbery that had resulted in murder. Raised by abusive, drug addicted parents, Green was 18 years old in 1992 when he was charged with the fatal shooting of a truck driver outside a Houston, TX convenvience store. His court - appointed lawyers were both inexperienced and negligent. The jury which had no African Americans on it sentenced him to death. A thought provoking and heartbreaking look at a young African American man who turned his life around while serving 12 years on death row in Texas.

This is an inspirational book about the resilience of one young man who was a true leader. While in solitary confinement he positively influenced people on both the inside and outside of prison. Despite many reasons to be negative he maintained a positive attitude.
