Food for thought (Eat this) by Carlton A. Turner October 20, 2006
* Here is a short article by Carlton Turner.- Rob “Food for Thought (Eat This)” by: Carlton A. Turner
Greetings! Allow me to be brief in expressing what I intend on addressing… On the date of October 23rd, 2006, I am initiating a ‘Hunger Strike.’ This will be done with the intentions of protesting the Death Penalty and the horrid conditions that Death Row prisoners endure daily. Sadly, I cannot predict when this Hunger Strike will end, but I intend to push it to the limit of my will. I refuse to eat any more garbage that TDCJ feeds here. I’m tired of accepting spoiled and undercooked food. I’m tired of the deprivation. Change must come! Protesting in many forms is my way of speaking out and standing up for Justice and Truth. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that amongst these are LIFE, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. – That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it….”- excerpt from “The Declaration of Independence”
How long will you let them to continue to destroy and pervert American ideals? The time for talking has passed. Time for action! We’ve been passive for way too long. Act now! I implore you to help us!
