Take this note! Everyone has given the chance or will find the way to travel to the places they want to go. Maybe someday while travelling to someplace where no one knows your name will finally begin to meet your special someone. Isn’t it something you want to share stories to your friends and family?

Indeed a great style of a dress, I love how it was designed and perfect for a celebration.
A father is someone who holds you when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules and shines with pride when you succeed. That is my father! Yeah! Happy Father’s Day my dear papa! Thank you for everything! Love you so much, mwuah! ;-)

I miss ‘em.
What comes to your mind when you heard about death penalty? Well, all of us have different beliefs and an opinion regarding death penalty but what is the meaning of death penalty? Death penalty is also known as capital punishment. It is a method whereby a person is place to death by a government by means of punishment for an infringement. Death penalty was used for a long time and still other countries were doing the capital punishment. As you go on, you will understand why death penalty is a motionless issue among other people as well as the government.
Death penalty is a controversial subject nowadays and often people support it while others wish for it to stop. We cannot dictate what we want because every people have their different ideas about it. In most places that practice capital punishment today, the death penalty is reserved as punishment for premeditated murder, espionage, treason, or as part of military justice. In some countries sexual crimes, such as rape, adultery and sodomy, carry the death penalty, as do religious crimes such as apostasy. In many retentionist countries (countries that use the death penalty), drug trafficking is also a capital offense. In China, human trafficking and serious cases of corruption are also punished by the death penalty.
For me, I’m not in favor of capital punishment. Why? Because it is morally wrong and we don’t have the right to kill someone just because they do crimes. Death is a dreadful word. It takes serious matter to talk about it. It is an issue that involves justice, machinery, science and religion. For us Catholic, it is not acceptable to support death penalty. It is only God who can take our lives away. The government should be aware of their actions because capital punishment involves money and they need to spend more of it just to kill someone. I don’t think that it is such a good idea. I mean that the government is just wasting money for just killing a person and killing is an evil way of punishment.
According to Human Rights Commissioner John Sakulanda, “Zambia should move towards being a beacon for respect of fundamental rights of every human being.” (Africa News Service, 2004). I agree with Sakulanda’s statement; death penalty is a cold-blooded treatment for humans. Death is absolutely not the correct means of penalty for a guilty criminal offense.
Based on my excerpt research about human rights, I am truly in favor of what Mr. Sakulanda had said. Respect people as well as their human rights, we don’t have the authority to take anyone’s possession including their life. God gave every person the most precious gift of all – THE LIFE. It means that God will also be the one who can take it away. Everybody is familiar with the Ten Commandments of God and in the 6th commandment stated that “You shall not murder”, simple as that then why is it some government are still supporting it? Death penalty has been shattered by more than twenty countries except China, USA and Iran because it was considered as brutal and vicious punishment.
There is also a particular reason why death penalty is morally wrong. First, it disregards the religious ideas which can be a sin and sin is an action that ruins God’s will. Second, it is not the best idea to face or to deal the crimes. Third, it cannot decrease the rate of crimes when capital punishment is supported. Lastly, innocent people may be mistakenly convicted. They should feel pity for themselves. These criminal people should be verdict to jail for the time of their lives. Prison is not a free time and it is worse than death. A life sentence ought to make criminals regret and recognize what they did was wrong and try to change and be a better person.
Does capital punishment give increased protection in contradiction of being murder? I don’t think so. Dissimulation of capital punishment will not prevent commission of heinous crimes. It only reflects the false step of the government and the society to teach proper values to its citizens. Justice cannot be achieved by killing the criminal. We must appreciate life and in the same side, the government must not resort to imposing death penalty to find justice to the victim.
The decisions are still on our both hand, meaning do not make sins that can make our life be destroy. Put these on your mind; “We cannot make a mistake for another mistake.” Life is all about morality, constitutionality, and dignitary. The death penalty question is a hard one to answer. It’s a question of gray areas and specific situations and cases. But in the end, the quote still stays in my head: “Why do we kill people who are killing people to show that killing people is wrong?”
Remember this: “Capital punishment feeds the cycle of violence in society by pandering to a lust for revenge. It brutalized us and deadens our sensitivities to the precious nature of every single human life.” — Most Rev. David B. Thompson, Bishop of Charleston, S.C., December, 1998
