No rush to judgment

No rush to judgment

9-22-15

I’d like to hear an explanation

I’d like to hear a little truth

I’ve read the lies and speculation

I’d like to see a little proof

Before you condemn a man

Before you send him to his death

Before you destroy a man

Can you live with that?

I walked alongside the indicted

I’ve walked a mile in their shoes

I lived with weight on my shoulders

I’ve worn the target of the accused

Before you condemn a man

Before you send him to his death

Before you destroy a man

Can you live with that?
