The day after an execution

We stumbled across this entry on the blog of Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty, NCADP's Alabama affiliate. Alabama had a (somewhat) rare execution last week:

The day after an execution is difficult. The mood last night at Holman was described as “somber”. Too many of their friends have died and they live with their own death staring them in the face. And for us out here who have lost someone we loved, have loved ones on death row or without even knowing anyone on death row are just plain revolted by state murder, this day is hard. Yesterday was hard and the days leading up to it were hard. We relive and our hearts break all over again.
