Many of my paintings, still lifes, landscapes, underwater scenes are meant to be eye candy. I sometimes feel that perhaps my style is too...

Please Help! write letters for David

My Dear Friends, I am once again filing for clemency, this time with Barack Obama, in hopes that the Democrats may look more favorably upon my release. once again, i am calling upon my friends to provide a brief letter of support and / or e-mail to: The President of the United States Mr. Barack Obama c/o United States Dept. of Justice Mr. Ronald L. Rodgers, Pardon Atty. 1425 New York Ave., N.W. Suite 11000 Washington, D.C. 20530 U.S.A. e-mail to Mr. Ronald L. Rodgers, Pardon Atty. USPardon.Attorney@usdoj.gov note that the capital letters in e-mail address are correct. I’m sure that all of us are different people and the world a different place than existed 18 years ago. i yearn to paint in the free air of the world. i have missed all of those meaningfull events that mark our lives , the graduations, marraiges, births deaths loves triumphs and struggles and wish only to spend my time amongst family and friends. this is a rare but not impossible undertaking. an old friend and cellie of mine named don clark was granted clemency by pres. clinton. i believe that my only chance for success is an overwhelming show of support from as many people as possible in order to stand out from the other applicants. i don"t have any movie stars or famous advocates which seems to be the easiest way that applicants succeed. i don’t believe that i am that special or deserving of your help, but none-the-less here i am hat in hand. the e-mails do not have to be long or involved, they should all specify, “i am writing to you concerning Henry David Potwin, 26525-077 who is at F.C.I. Ft. Worth,in Ft. Worth ,Texas. I request that he be granted clemency.” Talking points , for example: 1) the unnecessary harshness of his 25 year sentence 2) that he has paid his debt to society 3)has been incarcerated since 1994 4) is no threat to society 5)he is 60 years of age 6) he is sufficiently rehabilitated 7) he is an artist who has much to contribute and would be a valuable member of society 8) his 82 year old mother is in need of his assistance 9) he has the support of friends and family who would benefit from his release 10) he has been trouble free in his institution and has taught art to prisoners for many years earning the respect of inmates and staff 11)has friends and family willing to help him transition back into society. do not hesitate to announce your credentials, titles, memberships and awards. you are all important people.this attempt will be my swan song and i really do need a chorus of a thousand. please feel free to post this wherever it may do some good and if you have the time, visit my website at henrydavidpotwin.com thanks. i am in all ya’alls debt.
