What a cool story. She must have been quite a woman. I hope she gets her statue.

It would be a wonderful way to rectify the woman's death. She was a healer and midwife, so she probably wasn't evil. Hopefully she gets the statue, that'd be a great tribute to the memory of all those who were unjustly killed so long ago.

Thats really great that someone is taking action to help the midwife, against the wrong doings in the past, but what is disturbing is that no one else seemed to take action before this time now, and how long ago did this occur...... in 1706

I do not think it is "a waste of time." :angry2: And nothing is to late for innocent person to be convicted of doing something wrong, when they are good people. *snarl* Its people like you that are ignorant and want to stay that way. Its like killing someone innocent and saying "It doesn't matter." The world may have great problems, but that does not mean there should be no respect for those who lived in the past. Also being convicted as a witch gives no right to be hurt. We are hum...

Clearing a name on a record is a good thing. Endless monuments to victims is victim worship which is unhealthy. It encourages people to want to be victims so that they can feel special and significant, that being a victim is more worthy than being a hero or discoverer.
