Good Friday

Ellis Unit One by Steve Earle

I think the S. Earle’s point of view of the executioner in this song hits home when talking about executions (i.e capital punishment).  Especially hits home on the remembrance of the day Jesus Christ was executed.

Good Friday had to happen in order to get the joy of Easter Sunday, but the account still drives a fist into the pit of your stomach, even after all these years and all the times I’ve heard the tale.

Pray for the imprisoned and condemned today. They need it.
