Grant, O Lord, that, while we here lament the departure of Thy servant, we may ever remember that we are most certainly to follow him. Give us grace to prepare for that last hour, by a good life, that we may not be surprised by a sudden death, but be ever watching when Thou shalt call, that so with James we may enter into eternal glory: Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Let us pray. To you, O God, the dead do not die, in death our life is changed, not ended. Hear our prayers and command the souls of our servants to dwell with Abraham and Sarah, your friends, and be raised at last on the great day of judgment. In your mercy cleanse them of any sin which they may have committed through human frailty. We ask this through Christ, our Risen Lord. Amen.

I never had the privilege of meeting James. But I count him as a wonderful friend ! I am a 76 year old retired Televison personality - from the LA / Orange County areas. James case is yet another OUTRAGE - that points to the sheer BRUTAL - MURDEROUS - LEGALISTIC LUNACY - that passes for TEXAS JUSTICE ! I shall always remember James Allridge as the wonderful - warm hearted - young man - I have come to love and respect. My prayers are with his Parents and family.

James is still dead, and my heart’s still broken. Coming here several times a week to post things makes me feel worse, not better. The only consolation I have for any of us is, to paraphrase a line from a movie, “A broken heart goes on beating.” Like you, some days I don’t know if that’s good or bad.

It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It is not a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled. But it is a calamity not to dream. It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideal, But it is a disaster to no ideal to capture. It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars. But it is a disgrace not to have stars to reach for. Not failure, but low aim is a sin. Dr Benjamin Elijah Mays 1894-1984

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings. Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun split clouds - and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of; wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hovering there I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air; Up, up the long delirious burning blue I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace, Where never lark nor even eagle flew; And while, with silent lifting mind I've trod The high, untrespassed sanctity of space Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

Into your hands, O Lord we humbly entrust our brother James. In this life you embraced him with your tender love; deliver him now from every evil and bid him enter eternal rest. The old order has passed away: welcome him then into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping nor pain, but the fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.

Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you; whatever we were to each other, that, we still are. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used, put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we shared together. Let my name ever be the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well.

"I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says "There, she is gone." "Gone where?" "Gone from my sight. That is all." She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as when she left my side and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at that moment when someone says "There, she is gone" there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout - "Here she comes!" by Henry Van Dyke

TIME does not bring relief; you all have lied Who told me time would ease me of my pain! I miss him in the weeping of the rain; I want him at the shrinking of the tide; The old snows melt from every mountain-side, And last year’s leaves are smoke in every lane; But last year’s bitter loving must remain Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide! There are a hundred places where I fear To go,—so with his memory they brim! And entering with relief some quiet place Where never fell his foot or shone his face I say, “There is no memory of him here!” And so stand stricken, so remembering him!

i still recall the taste of your tears
echoing your voice just like the ringing in my ears
my favorite dreams of you still wash ashore
scraping through my head 'till i don't want to sleep anymore

you always were the one to show me how
back then i couldn't do the things that i can do now
this thing is slowly taking me apart
grey would be the color if i had a heart

Loneliness and despair
Leaving me tired
Another day without you
Loneliness and despair
Leaving me tired

Gone forever
Eternally silenced
Remembered by each of us
Memories so very sweet
All we have left
Never forgotten
Sadly gone

Angels in heaven
Regard you highly
Encouraging your art

Now we gather our courage
Always remembering
Zoetrope of your life
Invigorating our imaginations!

If only we had thought

Love like a blanket
Over each of us
Violence smothered
Eternally

You tried to tell us
Understanding did not come easy
My soul has been damaged
My happiness is gone
You tried to tell us all

And no one listened
Sadly no one listened
Sadly no one listened

For each of us
Understanding has a price
Don't ever forget
Go not gently into that night
Eternally

Let us pray with confidence to God, who gives life to all things, that he will raise up this mortal body to the perfection and the company of the saints. May God give him a merciful judgment and forgive all his sins. May Christ, the Good Shepherd, lead him safely home to be at peace with God our Father. And may he be happy for ever with all the saints in the presence of the eternal King,"

« Previous Tip | Next Tip » When Tomorrow Starts Without Me When tomorrow starts without me, and I"m not there to see, If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me, I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today, While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me to; But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand Than an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand, And said my place was ready, in heaven far above, And that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye, For all life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die. I had to much to live for, so much yet to do, It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you. So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, For every tim

Perhaps you were sent to show us,
How love can overcome all.
300 dollars the price of your death.
41 years is not enough time.
Remembered forever, by all of us.

May your days be countless and beautiful.
Yearning for nothing.

Maybe someday we will all see the madness.
Abolish it once and for all.
Death penalty a scar on the face of the West.

So now that you have ascended above us.
Keep us in your heart, and your love.
1 of us so brave. So brave.
Let us learn from each other, and our mistakes.
Love washing over us now.
Zero room for hate.

In these days of trials and torment
There are so few angels left.

Please tell me it's not true
Useless killing perpetuated
Thoughtlessnes and hate
Sanctity of life brushed aside.

Tell me it's not true
He can't really be gone
Everything I ever believed in.

Look into yourself
Only we can make a difference
Thinking of others as ourselves
Injustice brushed aside
Onward we push
Never giving up.

Injustice brushed aside
Never giving up.

Tell me it's not true
He can't really be gone
Everything I ever believed in.

Beautiful soul
Artist until the end
Someone who will live forever
Keep our faith alive
Each and every day
Tell me how to go on.

I Am Not Dead Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow; I am diamond glints of snow; I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn's rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush; I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds encircled flight. I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there, I did not die. Source unknown

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi Lord, make us instruments of your peace. Where there is hatred let us sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is discord, union; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy. Grant that we may not so much seek To be consoled as to console; To be understood as to understand; To be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen

Out of darknes and into the light
Where are the songs that we used to sing?
Now I can hear the soft words you spoke
Ever the believer, ever the saint
Do not look away, I understand

Begin again, here and now
You have the choice, it is yours to make

Paths appear before us as we walk
How can we accept light if we deny truth?
Every day we have a choice to make
All of this weight, I cannot bear
Return to me on the wings of the morning

All of this I cannot bear
Now the darkness has shaded your face
Dancing with pain and fear

Deny this darkness, embrace the light
Open your arms to this Love
Come to me now, in peace and safety

God of Compassion You let your rain fall on the just and the unjust. Expand and deepen our hearts so that we may love as You love, even those among us who have caused the greatest pain by taking life. For there is in our land a great cry for vengeance as we fill up death row and kill the killers in the name of justice, in the name of peace. Jesus, our brother, you suffered execution at the hands of the state but you did not let hatred overcome you Help us to reach out to victims of violence so that our enduring love may help them heal. Holy Spirit of God, You strengthen us in the struggle for justice, Help us to work tirelessly for the abolition of state-sanctioned death and to renew our society in its very heart so that violence will be no more.

Someday we will heal our wounds
And others will not need to die
To make amends with a needle
Another wasted life
Now it the time for action
So others can live on
But first we must all learn
Understanding is the key
Time to listen
Time to speak
Preach of good thing
Listen not to evil
Unite as one we must
Go forth and make it so!

Everything we do, each and every day,
All our lives - it has meaning.
Though it's not always obvious,
Many people are watching.
You have to live each day,
As if the whole world sees what you do.
So why don't more people realize this?
So why do we continue to kill people for 'justice'?

Go from this place
Leap from the boughs
Always with a spring in your step
Despite a heavy heart

You are not alone
Only the trees can whisper your name this way
Underneath the light of the Autumn moon
'twixt the dawn and the fall of night
Remembering your sighs
Every moment etched in my mind

Difficult to think now that you're gone
Every thing is different
Anything I can think to say is drowned
Drowned in my regret

Dearest James; Everyone's heart goes out to your family and your friends. There is no way to un- do what has been done. Surely, there must be a way we as a people could come together with greater understanding and caring and then maybe, just maybe, we could somehow be a better people despite ourselves and those who preach hate.

James was a beautiful soul
Another poet whose art touched us
Making us pause to think
Every one of us would stop
Stop and think about our actions

Before your art I was afraid
Little by little I became brave
One day at a time
Wondering if you knew the gift you gave
Selflessly

Greater love is not known
Other voices crowd around
Another day another life
Time will spin out again
Some day we will all be free

On with our busy days.
On with our busy lives.
Knowing you are no longer here.
Every day is darker.
Dawn comes not as soon.
Onward we battle our demons.
Now one angel less.
Fighting for the freedom of others.
Injustice trampled underfoot.
Strong in the truth.
True to our cause
Injustice giving way to freedom.
Never to be caged again.

To the Allridge family and all those who supported and fought for James. You don't know me and never will and I am not even from your country, but I have followed the case a little and I am an avid believer in abolishing the death penalty. It seems to me James had become a good person who certainly had sometihng to offer society, even from a prison cell. My heart goes out to you all, particulary the family. Please know there are prayers said about you all tonight from as far aaway as Australia. I take my hat off to those of you or continue the fight. You will succeed. xx

Such as you are not given lightly
Unto the arms of death
So that he may carry you
At last to your eternal rest
Not for me do they cry

So often do I think on thee
Always with a smile
Rarely do I forget
As in times past I from time to time would
Now I hold my hand out
Down I tilt my head
Onward I must walk without the wind
Never again will I hear you speak
'twas but a whisper against the backdrop
Sometimes I listen too hard

Always will I stand
Never again will I falter

To the Allridge family, May God bless each and everyone of you. I believe with all my hearth that James and his brother are in Heaven. I had a sister who was murdered...your son should NOT have died! I pray our legal system changes...it's wrong! I am a native Texan and can't help but feel ashamed by our criminal system. There's NOT a doubt in my mind that James is dancing with Jesus right now and knowing my sister, I bet she's joining in!! :) The ones who my heart goes truly out and that is the victim's family...I thought they were Christians????? Guess not. I pray they dod NOT receive the Mercy that the State of Texas holds...which is NONE. Your son's artwork was truly a gift from God. You should be VERY proud of him. If there is EVER anything that I can do...run errands, fix dinner, etc...please let me know. I pray only God's very best comes your way. May God bless you with Love, Happiness, Healing, Love. With kindest regards, Linda Carlton

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. I'm following the path God has laid, you see I took his hand when I heard his call; I turned my back an left it all. If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joys- A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss... Oh, yes, these things I, too, will miss Be no burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow Perhaps my time seemed all too brief Don't lengthen it now with undue grief Lift up your hearts and peace to thee God wanted me now. He set me free. My heart goes out to James and his family.

Under the watchful eye of God

Roaming free and at peace

Every day surrounded by love

Rising and falling on the currents

Rising and falling on the currents of His Love

I am a student of one of james' and his big brothers' teachers,Mrs. Rue. And today we came into class and she told use that she was going to tell use the story of oher former student whom is on death row. Now I was about to do like my other 17 classmates and take that good old nap before lunch but something told me to listen. SO she told use and even though some of the students in my class were like "whatever they deserve what they get" I really couldn't agree with them.My heart is heavy because when she told us it felt like god made her tell me for a reason,but then she told us that he has untill 12:01 tonight i feel like i could have done something.honestly I know my little 17 year old opinon would not have made a big difference,but I just feel I could have done anything to help. But for James, I know you will probly never get to read this but i have to say it, My heart goes out to you and if they don't give you your appeal make sure you have you relationship with god where it needs

Most capital crimes are committed in the heat of the moment. Most capital crimes are committed during moments of great emotional stress or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, when logical thinking has been suspended. In such cases, violence is inflicted by persons heedless of the consequences to themselves as well as to others.... If, however, severe punishment can deter crime, then long-term imprisonment is severe enough to deter any rational person from committing a violent crime. The vast preponderance of the evidence shows that the death penalty is no more effective than imprisonment in deterring murder and that it may even be an incitement to criminal violence. Death-penalty states as a group do not have lower rates of criminal homicide than non-deathpenalty states....

Hello Phear - I'm from Schwitzerland. In our country we deal with murderes very well. We simply put them away for life, so they cannot do any harm agin, EVER! And at the same time we do not have to kill people...Very convenient, especially if they turn out to be innocent, later on. But the again, who cares if a few persons are excecuted by mistake, it is only 1 out of 7 on deathrow who turns out to be innocent, annyway. You don't get do you?

Those who believe that deterrence justifies the execution of certain offenders bear the burden of proving that the death penalty is a deterrent. The overwhelming conclusion from years of deterrence studies is that the death penalty is, at best, no more of a deterrent than a sentence of life in prison. The Ehrlich studies have been widely discredited. In fact, some criminologists,maintain that the death penalty has the opposite effect: that is, society is brutalized by the use of the death penalty, and this increases the likelihood of more murder. Even most supporters of the death penalty now place little or no weight on deterrence as a serious justification for its continued use. States in the United States that do not employ the death penalty generally have lower murder rates than states that do. The same is true when the U.S. is compared to countries similar to it. The U.S., with the death penalty, has a higher murder rate than the countries of Europe or Canada, which do not use

The death penalty alone imposes an irrevocable sentence. Once an inmate is executed, nothing can be done to make amends if a mistake has been made. There is considerable evidence that many mistakes have been made in sentencing people to death. Since 1973, at least 88 people have been released from death row after evidence of their innocence emerged. During the same period of time, over 650 people have been executed. Thus, for every seven people executed, we have found one person on death row who never should have been convicted. These statistics represent an intolerable risk of executing the innocent. Don't you get it? - we end up being the murderes our self!

As a Houston resident, I'm appalled that Texas leads this nation in the number of executions. Previous entries have made note of the moral discrepency. At a protest, someone once yelled at me, "Murders get murdered." That terminology is very telling. If murders get murdered, then what does that make our government? Murders. "An eye for an eye leaves the world blind." Yes, America is a laughingstock on the international stage because of the "strong moral" stance we TRY to take on the world scene while allowing torture, hate and murder to go on at home and participating in it abroad.

I dont get it. The amaricans preaching about stupid sayings like "an eye for an eye". The notion of an eye for an eye, or a life for a life, is a simplistic one which the western society has never endorsed. We do not allow torturing the torturer, or raping the rapist. Taking the life of a murderer is a similarly disproportionate punishment, especially in light of the fact that the U.S. executes only a small percentage of those convicted of murder, and these defendants are typically not the worst offenders but merely the ones with the fewest resources to defend themselves. WAKE THE FUCK UP RETARDS!!!!! THE REST OF THE WORLD IS LAUGHING BEHIND YOUR BACK, DONT YOU GET IT?

Retribution is another word for revenge. Although our first instinct may be to inflict immediate pain on someone who wrongs us, the standards of a mature society demand a more measured response. The emotional impulse for revenge is not a sufficient justification for invoking a system of capital punishment, with all its accompanying problems and risks. Our laws and criminal justice system should lead us to higher principles that demonstrate a complete respect for life, even the life of a murderer. Encouraging our basest motives of revenge, which ends in another killing, extends the chain of violence. Allowing executions sanctions killing as a form of 'pay-back.'

No one is in anyway defending what James has done. He should be put away the rest of his life, no doubt.The thing I don't understand is how the amaricans can say that it's okay to take another persons life. Some one will actually have to kill James, pushing a button or injecting the poison. This primitive form of "refence" is only seen in contries like Afganistan, China and Irak. Put him away for life and he will never be able to harm anyone again. Everything else is not ponishment but ugly revence telling that the amaricans are no better than the murdere himself.

I beleive like George W. and the KJV of Bible, but in this particular situation of Brother and all, This is what I recomend to all the Prison officials and that is to allow Mr. Allridge to live out a sentence with no parole and sign papers that would not permit him to change his mind later to the death penalty when he got seriously ill from aids, cancer or anything, and to me this would be equal and more than a death penalty in this case but do not allow Parole later. Thanks Hope you get to live for a few more years. , been in jail a bunch of times but not prison, May God Forever Bless you and yours. Art Barnes Matthew 6:21

James hope that your last days on this earth will be good and warm!! I dont know what to say to make you feel good, but dont believe on what the others say!! Ask god what is right and wrong and I'll bet that you are going to get a second chance!! If you really want it and you have done everything to say sorry. What you get is not payback, but it just puts the goverment in the same place as you. Hope that you soon get enough money!! Enjoy what you got left and not what you have lost.

This message is on Danish. Hej. jeg har ondt af dig, det er ikke godt uanset at skulle miste sit liv, men set i bakspejlet har du jo selv taget livet fra et andet menneske, i danmark kalder vi det pay back. Det er jo det der sker - du besluttede at drbe et andet menneske, og nu er loven sdan at du m betale prisen. Jeg nsker for dig at du kan f en fair chance for at leve. (Det var mere end en chance du gav dit offer) - M Gud vre hos dig. krlig hilsen Ken.

The USA is still in an experimental phase regarding becoming a civilization. The primitive laws and misunderstood ways of trying to control peoples moral by these reminds me of those of the middle east. But the difference is that the countries of the middle east have a real culture - the US dont. Its all based on Mickey Mouse, Cheersleaders, Hamburgers - and death penalty. I wish someday somebody would take its leaders under his wings and show them how things can be done the right way. God bless you my friend, he will embrace you in heaven. Jazzlpunk, a European

To the people on here that have to state there feelings, it shows me, the death penalty just causes so much hatred to the public, reading all your posts. Hatred gets you no where in life, forgiveness is the answer. I hope one day that you can find that forgiveness. Perhaps one day you all will need someone, and they will be like you are acting. There is so much hatred in your hearts, its a possibility, and I pray not. James, your artwork is magnificent, and from the heart and soul, and it shows that you are a true person inside.

Needless to say, it was a horrendous thing that James did, but I think he knows that. I hope that they turn over your sentence to Life, but because it is Texas, they probably won't. Who ever posted earlier using the term "nigger" is completely ignorant and therefore, his opinion is of less value. James, I hope the best for you as an artist. Granted, you killed someone, but pursuing your dream is really admirable when you're locked up behind bars. It shows the willpower you have to live. Secondly, suffering is always wrong, no matter if it encompasses one who has caused suffering or not. Having the death penalty in place is not a deterrent, and with studies it has been proven not to be. Therefore, this is not just an assumption I have made, it is a fact. Rehabilitation might not always work, but the attempt at doing so is a worthy cause and people should push forward to see it happen for more inmates. It is more expensive to execute an inmate as opposed to keeping him or her in jail for

I recently learned about Mr. Allridge's situation quite by accident. Since then, my sleep has been disturbed by nightmares about his upcoming execution. Two things which really bother me are 1) how many of you bring up the $300 issue and 2) Texas's commutation of Henry Lucas's death sentence. Personally, I would never get a good night's rest if I commuted Lucas's sentece and executed Allridge. As for the $300, your attitude makes me think you feel the crime would be less significant if Mr. Allridge robbed a bank rather than a convenience store. My prayers are with James and his loved ones, and of course with the loved ones of the deceased. To use an old expression: Two wrongs don't make a right.

James, may God give you His peace and comfort beyond all human understanding and may you remember that He is in control no matter what. I was undecided about the death penalty until I was recently summoned for jury duty. When I finally had to fill out a questionnarie and make up my own mind and stand on my own principals....I knew it was a terrible thing and that I had no right to take another human's life. If Jesus walked among us today on earth, He would certainly forgive you (as He already has if you have sincerely repented of your crime and asked Him to come into your life as your Lord and Savior). To have the "mind of Christ" is a hard thing but if one asks themselves "what would Jesus do," things would be a lot clearer. People would be able to forgive one another. I know it would be extremely hard to forgive such a crime but if one cannot forgive, it will only eat away at them until they are spiritually dead within. Remember, Jesus forgave the robber on the cross before

One of my favorite all time movies is, Shawshank Redemption. The movie beautifully portrays how corrupt and decayed the system is. Yet, I find the movie oddly inspiring, as it shows such hope and beauty within the inmates that are confined. The movie brings hope - in humanity itself. But keep in mind, James, if you do walk the final walk - and your heart is right with God, then the place you are going to will NOT be about confinement anymore. You will be as free as a dove. Nothing on this earth can be compared. You will be given a new body, a new name, you will neither be black or white, and your sins on earth will be FORGOTTEN! The lion will lay with the lamb and Jesus says he will wipe all tears from our eyes.

James, you appear to be a talented individual with great potential - I truly believe that there are "SOME" inmates that CAN be rehabilitated. As a person who's ALWAYS stood firmly in SUPPORT of the death penalty, I sometimes bump into other stories of inmates (like yourself) and find myself RE THINKING my stand on the death penalty. I truly believe that YOU can be rehabilitated and that perhaps you ARE a productive member of society. But I also feel that NOT everyone CAN be rehabilitated, nor should they. I read your story with interest about the girl and the (tiger?) who had lost her hand - your reference to inmates being treated like "animals" thus, ACTING like animals made a lot of sense. But you do have to admit that SOME inmates acted like animals BEFORE they were incarcerated - namely, for example, TED BUNDY. This man acted with total DISREGARD to human life, he serially had taken- SAVAGELY- NUMEROUS innocent lives - this was not a "heat of the moment" act in passionate ang

I think the only reasonable alternative to the death penalty would be for the convicted to: 1) spend life in prison, no parole 2) upkeep of the vitim(s) gravesite at least once a month. 3) write an apology letter to every surviving immediate family member, including spouse, children, and grandchildren, on Christmas, on Thanksgiving, on Mothers/Fathers Day (whichever applies) and on the victim(s) birthday(s), apologizing for keeping their loved one(s) from enjoying those special times with their families. But the bottom line is, STOP TREATING THESE MURDERING SCUM LIKE 'VICTIMS!' I know many people who had crappy childhoods, who didn't get the bike they wanted (or whatever lame excuse these creeps give) and these people turned out JUST FINE. It all comes down to making a choice: Do I want to spend the rest of my life behind bars, or do I want to contribute to the betterment of mankind?

I met James for the first time last Friday while in Livingston visiting a few close friends. The first thing I noticed about him was his mannerisms. He is an extremely gentle, respectful man. Tall (almost giant compared to me) soft spoken and very polite. Secondly there is this glow about him, I do believe he has found God (we debated politely about this for awhile-smile) and from our visit I walked away knowing that I just encountered a blessing. I will never forget him. Never.

hi James, I just read all the comments people made on your great site and it gave me a warm feeling, that humans care for other humans, since we all are brothers and sisters... I'm belgian and I have myself two prisoners who I write to. I just would like to say keep up the will to live, to go forwards and not ever lose hope, and above all keep drawing or painting, it gives you such a feeling of going further than "cellwalls"... I'm myself a painter.. keep up your spirits and God bless you!

I'm helping my 16-year old daughter collect research information for an essay paper she is writing. She is against the death penalty and is collecting data to support her premis. I can't think of a better argument supporting her premis than the tradgedy of James Allridge III, combined with national statistics on victims of the death penalty. I will sign James Allridge III petition.

You have proven yourself to be totally rehabilitated and, although I understand that you want your sentence to be changed to a life sentence, I think that after all these years, you have served your time, learnt a great deal from it and should be freed so that you can share your talent with the rest of the world as a free man.

Talented James and his friends are visionaries like Dostoyevsky. As a result of their death row hardships, they have recovered a "piece" which is on the whole missing in the American psyche. Humanity!!!If America regained that they wouldn't execute people nor would they have the crime problems, as they would have a more healthy caring society. Thanks for such an inspirational web site.

I write in disgust at America which tries to claim it is civilised yet lets hundreds sit on death row waiting for their time. It's terrible and uncivilised. Even for the guilty death is not right and in james's case he is probably just another black american who received an unfair trial because of his colour in front of a [probably] all white racist jury.

Have been writing to James for many years now, and visited him once at Ellis Unit in Huntsville. I am very impressed by his warmth and intelligence. It would be a terrible crime to execute him - he should be released back into society where he has much to contribute. His elder brother has already been executed for the same crime James is incarcerated for. Enough is enough, release James now.

The death penalty has always been used disproportionately against the poor, poor whites,the blacks, and other minorities. There is no redeeming value in killing as a form of punishment. It is not an effective deterrent. It undermines and destroys respect for human life. It appeals to our basest instincts. It is long past time that we abolish the death penalty in Texas and the nation and recommit ourselves to a more just and humane society. Myshel

That the State administers the death penalty hardly diminishes its brutality. It is, pure and simple, the killing of another human being. It is the grossest tit for tat. When the State say this or that human being is not worth saving, it cheapens the rest of us; it brutalizes the rest of us; and we become a more violent society.

Dear James! Now its over 4 years that Ive come to know someone on Texas Death-Row and since that time it always touches my heart when I hear or read something concerning the Death-Penalty, especially in Texas. And even you and the other inmates of Terrell may sometimes fell forgotten by the rest of the World - I want you to know that you are in the hearts of many people in the World who fight with all of you side by side against this barbaric system. DONT GIVE UP! Best wishes, Barbara

we have known of each other a while before we ever began to exchnage letters. I admire the talent, compassion and zest that James has. He is indeed a remarkable person - one who shows others that there is always a positive way forward, a way to share. People like James deeply enrich humanity. So thank you James for being you!

Dear James, May these few lines bring you all my support in your struggle that I do know is not so easy but your friends are by your sides and they won't let you down. Myself I am involved in the struggle against the death penalty and I've got friends there also in Terrell as in many other States overseas. One day things are going to change and more and more people as Europeans fight hand in hand with the american abolitionnists. Don't despair James and God bless you. Love, Veronique
