"My name is Shujaa Graham. I am a California death row survivor. I have always said that we need a government that would be so sensitive to the needs of the people that its every endeavor would be towards building peace and happiness and not preying on the misery of people. And that's really how the death penalty goes -- it preys upon people's fears.
After waking this morning, it was a heartwarming feeling to receive the news that Governor Newsom has declared a moratorium. Many thanks to the Governor for having the courage to do the right thing."
