The Journey of Hope is a group of murder victims' families, exonerees, and families of the executed that travel around a given state each year, spreading the good news of forgiveness and hope rather than revenge. Recently, the Journey has started its own blog. One of the main features of this blog is something called "Tuesday Focus" where a member of the journey is profiled and their story is briefly told. It's worth checking out, I know that I enjoy the quick tidbit of inspiration each week.
I'll be traveling with the journey in Virginia for about four days this October, and am really looking forward to the experience. From being able to work with some of Tennessee's own murder victims' families who oppose the death penalty, I know that these incredible stories of truly remarkable people can touch hearts and change minds in a way nothing else can.
