The crowd was silent and all staring at the woman as they realized there was no room for rebellion if you wanted to make it out alive. Even though all their faces were expressionless, I could see the hope in their eyes fade with each word the bald woman spoke. I really didn't think much of this, at the time I held the same opinion as most of the country: They know what they did, they did it on purpose, and they deserve to die by the hands of their own. Looking back on it however, it was heartbreaking. Even though all these people have no chance to make anything out of their lives, they still wanted to live. Life was the only thing they had left in the world and they couldn't even keep that. How could we do that to other human beings? Yes they have committed some of the most hated, disgusting acts that have ever been conceived, maybe they have taken the life of someone's child or a lover, maybe they have caused someone to suffer through terrible pain and have gained the hatred of society as a whole, but when we let that hatred get the best of us is when we become the monsters. The Execution was simply an act of rejection of what we can become being exposed by those who have become something we consider to be terrible and beyond our capacities. We simply don't want to accept the reality of what we could be, that is why the Execution continued for as long as it did. I wish that the world had realized this sooner, but the government suppressed these ideas and truths for its own gain. In retrospect, they were the real monsters.
