When I was writing my book, I asked Damien Echols if people who were supporting him from afar should feel a sense of victory if he ever were to get released. He told me that they absolutely should because they would have directly participated in the effort, even if all they did was buy a T-shirt or put a bumper sticker on their car.
Today, I celebrate his freedom after all these years.
Congrats to Damien and his wife, Lorri, to Jason and Jessie and to everyone else who hoped this day would happen.
Victory is ours to share!
