Ms. Dympna English organised a visit by Soar to Mulroy College in March this year and I found the experience extremely interesting and along with other students we found it rewarding.The school was then invited to attend Soar’s conference and Ms English organised the trip and accompanied me to Dublin along with Ms. Catherine Crawford to hear Kerry Max Cook’s story.Kerry was falsely imprisoned on death row for 22 years for a murder that he did not commit.He fought his innocence until the bitter end and was released from jail after his name was cleared. Kerry’s story really inspired me to keep going and to never lose hope. He has had to deal with the most horrific conditions and experiences imaginable. He told the story with so much emotion; it nearly brought me to tears.His story has shown me that people can get through anything, will power and a positive attitude means everything. I thoroughly enjoyed this eye opening, once-in-a-lifetime, experience and enjoyed the message of keeping positive at all times.   HOW A DEATH ROW PRISONER INSPIRED A MILFORD STUDENT was last modified: September 9th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
