Love Lived on Death Row Film Screening—This film tells the true story of the four Syriani siblings who father was sentenced to die for the murder of their mother in 1990.  Orphaned and estranged, the Syriani children lived with hate, anger, and confusion as the man they could only refer to as “him” lived on North Carolina’s death row.  But in 2004, they collectively decided to visit him in prison, seeking answers so they could move on with their adult lives.  What transpired that day was a miracle of forgiveness followed by a journey of healing and a battle for his clemency.  The film’s portrait of a family torn apart by tragedy and reunited by another impending tragedy is a powerful examination of not only the healing process but also of the role capital punishment plays in serving justice.
