Why Did He Spend 35 Innocent Years?

Many Things Are Hard To Understand
Many Things Are Hard To Understand

James Bain spent 35 years in prison for a rape he did not commit. Can you even begin to imagine what kind of hell that must have been? New DNA evidence proves he has been innocent. For 35 years.

Yesterday’s Orlando Sentinel article tells a brief story and shares video of James.

Can we all be kind enough to pause today, and perhaps in the coming days as well, and pray for James and his Family. There is no way to make up 35 lost years.

Can you imagine? What would you do? What do you hope for James?

  1. Patty, a great hope for James. And, for all people.
    I hope that James’ story doesn’t get wasted and that God will use James’ story to inspire others with justice, compassion, forgiveness, and Love.
    Got your package yesterday. Thank you very much. 🙂
