Default ‘The state that neglected me as a kid is the same state that wants to kill

‘The state that neglected me as a kid is the same state that wants to kill me’

"The man in the white short sleeve jumpsuit sat in a 3-by-3-foot cage-like booth, waiting patiently for the clock to start ticking on his time to talk.

Then he picked up the phone in cubicle 34 and began to tell his story.

“My name is Gerald Marshall. I’m 37 years old. I spent about 10 years of my childhood in foster care.”

He’s spending the remainder of his life on Texas death row.

“The state that neglected me as a kid and allowed me to age out of its support,” he said, “is the same state that wants to kill me.”"

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
