That’s Lindy in the striped shirt, with Alice from PBS/POV, and Journey of Hope speakers Terri Steinberg (son Justin faced death penalty), Marietta Jeager (Daughter Susie was murdered) and SueZann Bosler (Father Rev. Billy Bosler was murdered and she was stabbed and left for dead in the same incident).
