Kill In Our Names
By FedCURE member Rachel King. The compelling
stories of people who have lost family members to murder but are
opposed to the death penalty are contained in this poignant account
appropriately titled “Don’t Kill in Our Names.” Families of murder
victims are often ardent and very public supporters of the death
penalty. But the people whose stories appear in this book have chosen
instead to forgive their loved ones’ murderers, and many have developed
personal relationships with the killers and have even worked to
save their lives.
These families have formed a nationwide
group, Murder Victims’ Families for Reconciliation (MVFR) to oppose
the death penalty. Weaving third-person narrative with wrenching
first-hand accounts, King presents the stories of ten MVFR members.
Each is a heartrending tale of grief, soul searching and of the
challenge to choose forgiveness instead of revenge. Order your copy
