Although I’ve not met you personally, I feel like I know you because of Bob Perske’s relentless drive to tell everyone he knows about you and your story! The more I learned about the injustices you faced after being wrongfully convicted, and continue to face, the more passionate I became to educate others about your situation. Working at The Arc of the United States for the past 10 years has allowed me the opportunity to see stories like yours across the country, and although it does not dull the pain, I hope you realize you are not alone. Does it comfort you at all to know that many, many people, some you’ve never even met, are working non-stop until you are released? Please be encouraged and don’t lose hope! We will continue to fight the good fight until you are finally home!
