Forgiving the Unforgivable? Tonight we explore Gov. Kitzhaber's decision to temporarily halt executions in Oregon. We'll speak with Naseem Rakha, whose book The Crying Tree grew out of her experiences as a journalist covering Oregon's last executions, and her research speaking with both victims and Death Row inmates.

Also featured: A memorial in words and music to Martina Davis Correia, sister of Troy Davis who was recently executed in Georgia despite global outrage. Martina's personal struggles with breast cancer never detracted from her campaign to free her brother. Ten weeks after Troy's execution, Martina lost her battle with cancer.
