    your beliefs:

    easy, if you're comfortable knocking the outliers off the table, difficult, when you have to accept that there are always going to be outliers.

    My anti-death penalty beliefs (which I have held since I was 10 years old) have never been so put to the test in regards to a recent conviction in a crime so disgusting, I refuse to even mention it here.

    I am not an apologist for any of the circumstances that surround death penalty cases by any means, I simply believe that the system is fundamentally flawed and that it is simply the state taking revenge which undermines the basic tenet of a dispassionate legal system.

    I see a very beautiful planet that seems very inviting and peaceful. Unfortunately, it is not.…We're better than this. We must do better. Cmdr Scott Kelley
