printable version
Ron Carlson had his sister Deborah murdered in 1983. He first asked death penalty for the murderers, Karla Faye Tucker and Daniel Ryan Garret
 
He then wento into drug and alchool tunnel until when he found out that the only way to overcome all what happened was forgiving the murderers of her sister in 1990.
 
Ron forgave Karla and Dan and spent big part of his energies working to commute their death sentences into life senteces. Ron was invited by Karla to witness the execution as one of her representatives.
 
When he did so, he became the first known victim’s family member to witness an execution on behalf of the murderer.  “From anger to forgiveness” was his motto and way of life.
 
Ron was a living example that things can really change.  
 
Death Penalty can be abolished, like Ron won his anger.
