A prison inmate on death row was asked for his last wish before being strapped to an electric chair. He asked for a pen and paper and wrote:-*
_If the law was fair, today you would be here with me waiting to die together in the electric chair. But since the law is so blind, I have been convicted for the crimes we committed together, Mum, remember how it started?
_Do you remember the day I stole my friends sweet, you didn’t punish me, you only said I was young, Mum remember when I used to steal dad’s money but you didn’t report me, remember at 15 when I stole our neighbours bicycle? I hid it in the garage. You saw me and kept quite and I was with you when I sold it to scrap.
_Mum the day I was suspended from school for smoking and dodging lessons dad wanted to punish me but you stopped him, remember very well that day you had bitter argument with dad because you supported me saying that the teachers were wrong, and when me and my friends broke into Jimmy’s shop – did you call the police? Remember I was hidden at home.
_Mum, you never guided me, I was just a child, a little young boy who needed your guidance but you loved me so much and never corrected me and now its your love that has made me to die a shameless death in this electric chair being convicted for the crimes we committed together…_
_Your loving son._✍
THOUHT OF THE DAY
*To all parents out there… here is a big lesson for us, let’s guide our children well, If your child does something wrong punish them, help them to choose well from good and bad, help them to learn, don’t love so much to the extent of spoiling children.*
