Yay for free food! Seriously. Twas a good day in that department. Yeah, I just feel like updating if you couldn't tell. Anyway, I don't have German on Friday cause the professor has the test planned for Monday and she thinks we're ready. Then, for filling out some stupid survey, I got free (real) ice cream at dinner. Then, if you went to Domino's and filled out some credit card thingy that as long as you don't call and activate, you won't have to worry about it, you got a free pizza. I am a happy college student right now!

Now it's time for me to go off on a very personal based rant that you may or may not agree with me on, so don't read this if you really don't want to. It's about the death penalty. Two big trials apparently ended today, and that actor got off and what's his name (I don't pay attention to these things, okay? The name's aren't important anyway) got sentenced to death. Frankly, I don't know if either of them were guilty or not. I'm sure the evidence made all of the difference, so there's nothing I can say. However, I really think that no matter what anybody does, and no matter how terrible it is, no one deserves to die. Nobody. The relatives of whoever died, as that is usually the case in these punishments, should know this! Why put another family through what they had to go through? Why stoop to the level of a cold-blooded killer and do the same thing? It's horrible! I think that life in a small cell without a chance to leave at all is much worse than being put out of your misery like that. The death penalty is wrong. Frankly, I don't think Timothy McVeigh should have been put to death, either. For one, it was what he wanted! Why give him what he wanted?! Being the sort of Christian that I am, I just can't believe that people go to Hell. I just can't. There was no point in Jesus coming if we still could. The only person I can think of who would have possibly not gone to Heaven is Hitler. They're not punishing these people at all by killing them! Life in jail is worse in my opinion. And what about the family of the accused? I don't care what they say or use, it's cruel and unusual punishment and dropping to the level of a person who kills others, and I just can't support that. Kudos to states like Iowa for not having one.

Any death penalty supporters out there may now express your opinions, although I doubt we will change the minds of the other.
