The final two chapters, written by family members of victims, go one step further, arguing that even when there is no doubt of guilt, the death penalty is wrong. Bud Welch, whose daughter died in the Oklahoma City bombing, writes of the evolution of his own healing from raw anger with its desperate need for retaliation to his conviction that executing those who have wronged us only fuels hate and thwarts healing. Similarly, Renny Cushing, whose father was senselessly and violently murdered, writes, "The idea that I would be healed, that any murder victim would be healed, by inflicting pain upon … the family of a murderer is nonsense. Life is not a zero-sum game. My pain does not get eased by inflicting pain on another."
