The right to a new life

Posted4/4/2019 1:00 AM

I am disappointed in the city of Aurora wanting Thomas Kokoraleis removed from the Wayside Cross Ministries.

In my opinion, Thomas was involved in a horrible deed many years ago, was indicted, tried and sentenced. He served half of 70 years with good behavior. He chose to go to Wayside.


What I see is a man who has served his time and is asking for a second chance. I don't believe we are to judge him. What if he were your son, brother, husband or any other relative would Aurora residents feel the same way then? Let's let his judgment be given by the one who has that power and help him get on with a new life.
