"Yes sir. To Mr. Jerry Nutt, I just hope this brings some kind of peace to your family. I wish I could bring them back, but I can't. I hope my death brings peace; don't hang on to the hate. Momma, stay strong. Lord forgive me for my sins because here I come. Let's go, Warden."
— Jermaine Herron, just before he was executed on May 17, quoted in a must-read post by the Raving Atheist, "Last Words."
