“No Time To Waste”.... Since May is the month of Mothers I thought it would be a wonderful way of introducing you to a remarkable Woman/Mother/Grandmother who is currently serving time in Prison.  During a stormy night in February of 1984, Bill Prewitt was murdered in his bed and his wife Patty Prewitt was yanked from that bed and attacked.  Due to shoddy rural police work and gender prejudice, Patty immediately became the only suspect.  Although during the four-day jury trial she was offered a plea agreement that would have freed her over 20 years ago, she refused to plead guilty, was sentenced to “Life with No Parole for 50 Years” and was forced to leave her five young children who grew up, created families of their own, but have remained very close to their mother whom they love and know is innocent. 


This is such a remarkable story that includes a professional actress named Elizabeth Ann Townsend, who studied and worked onstage and screen in New York City for a couple of decades.  Through interesting circumstances Elizabeth was handed a couple of Patty Prewitt’s poems and astonished by the depth and reality of the writing one thing lead to another.  Elizabeth is currently working on doing a play based on Patty’s remarkable life.


Join us for an interview with both of these women in our May blog talk radio show called “Pure Hope Show”.  As a mother and a grandmother myself I am amazed how these two women came together and are working to bring “Light to our World”.  I am always amazed at how strong women are and so it gives me great pleasure to introduce to you a remarkable story about strength, love, courage and beauty. 


Happy Women’s Month to us all!
