Sample Text (you will be able to edit it on the website):
........................................................
Governor Perry, Attorney General Abbott, President Bush, Senators and
Representatives, Houston Mayor White, Houston City Councilors, and Texas
Board of Pardons and Paroles:

On September 14, 2005, Frances Newton, AN INNOCENT WOMAN, is scheduled
to be executed by the state of Texas. If the jury had known the facts
that are presently known, they would not have found Frances guilty nor
given her the death sentence. The dubious motive, unrealistic timeline,
the police's refusal to follow important leads, and most of all, her
incompetent counsel, all point to the compelling evidence that proves
Frances Newton is innocent. She has been on death row for 18 years, and
you have already granted her a 120- day stay. But on the basis of new
evidence, Frances needs to finally have her day in court. We plead to
you in good conscience to STOP THE EXECUTION OF FRANCES NEWTON.

Sincerely,
