July 21st-29th is Eric Volz Week

This week, right now is "Eric Volz Week," July 21st through the 29th, of 2007. The week that marks the beginning of the 9th month since Eric's arrest. His friends and family have asked that people gather and pray for him.
Please go to http://www.friendsofericvolz.com/ to read more about his story. In a nutshell, Eric was convicted of the murder of his x-girlfriend down in Nicaragua. But there is no legitimate evidence placing him anywhere near the crime scene, at the time of the murder. He is a 27 year old American who has been sentenced to 30 years in a Nicaraguan prison. The more I learn about him, the more I feel he was victim of a conspiracy.
He graduated University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Majoring in Latin American Cultural Studies. He studied, traveled, and was an avid adventurer. His future was bright, as he set out to pursue a career in photography and journalism. He was supposed to go to New York, but instead was invited to Nicaragua to put together a photography archive for that which would be the “El Puente Newspaper.”
He became the publisher of the Central American bilingual periodical, EP Magazine.
The magazine was a success; readers and advertisers saw potential in its image of “cultura libre – conscious living.” It wasn't long before, EP drew the attention of investors and major advertising entities, and became one of the leading bilingual publications in Central America.
I feel it is a shame that someone with so much to offer the world is rotting in prison for a crime he didn't commit. Most everyone is aware of how strongly I feel about this; I wear a "FREE ERIC VOLZ" button on my purse at all times. Please do your best to send positive thoughts his way this week. Visit his site: http://www.friendsofericvolz.com/ or find him on Myspace and remember: FREE ERIC VOLZ!
