Montgomery, AL

During today’s adventures, the thing that impacted me the most was the Equal Justice Initiative. Not only was the speaker and his story emotionally drawing but the center itself was intriguing. Just reading about the story of children being tried as adults in the American Court System was draining. As a female and a mother figure, I could not imagine someone wrongfully convicting my child and/or executing them. I let out emotions today that I had never felt before and ones that I did not know I could feel. In our country is it so common to see young black children called adults in the media and it saddening. Children are children and that needs to be understood.
