I’m posting this on my blog . I can’t ignore it.
I highly doubt that the President of Indonesia Joko Widodo will read this either but I just need to post this.
Two young men are likely to be put to death in the next week by a firing squad. I don’t have much to say except I hope it doesn’t happen. I hope there is a 11th hour save , I hope there is a change of mind.
These photos are those young men… as a Mother of a little boy I just can’t imagine the Mothers pain. No Mother raises their boy imagining that their lives will take this turn.
These Men were in the wrong no doubt about it. I would hope that even if I had a loved one that died from Heroin I could somehow have compassion for these men. Sometimes money does stupid things to people , makes them do stupid things..
Compassion and Peace is what is needed in this world. Where has it all gone ?
People that directly murder someone , destroy lives with their pedophilia and other horrific crimes are allowed to live but yet these young men are set to face a firing squad.
They were 21 and 23 at the time of their crime. I don’t know about you but I made stupid choices at that age. No I didn’t traffic drugs, I didn’t even do drugs but I made stupid choices because I was 21 and 23 .. things I would never do now …
Should they be punished YES – even 20 years in that hell hole of a jail would be a massive punishment (certainly way harder than our country !) But do they deserve Death by firing squad , by execution ? do their families deserve that ?
They do not
I am keeping everything crossed and saying a few silent prayers that these young men’s lives are spared.
I hope you will have some compassion too.
This is a Perth news story about these young men
I’m sorry its not food related or exciting or a giveaway but if you believe in this will you please share ? If you don’t then that’s ok you don’t have to .
I STAND FOR MERCY

I agree with everything you said. They were just kids when all this happened. Nobody should die because of a stupid choice made when they were that young. You’re right, we all did stupid things in our early 20s that we wouldn’t do now. I bet even Joko Widodo did things he wouldn’t want to see in print.
