The Exonerated

Last Friday night, my wife and I saw a production of “The Exonerated” which consisted of five stories of people who sat on Death Row for crimes they did not commit. It was real. It was moving. And it renewed one’s belief in the strength of the human character under the most difficult of adversities. Present at the theatre was Juan Rivera who was sat on Death Row in Illinois for seventeen years and was tried three times for a crime someone else committed. His story alone is not only inspiring but urges everyone who hears it to stand up when a wrong is being done and scream to the roof top that it must be righted. 

The production runs on Friday and Saturday nights through May 5 at the Josephine Louis Theatre at Northwestern. It is a must see.
