Statement of Gracia Fay Ellwood

"I knew David Griffin as my dissertation advisor at Claremont Graduate University, and thus have much first-hand knowledge that his is a mind of extraordinary power, discipline, and courage in dealing with unconventional evidence. I can testify that his voice deserves to be heard.  

We want to live in hope and look to the future. But if we look away from amassed evidence of past murder because the apparent perpetrators are still-powerful and prominent people, we set a precedent for a very bleak future when another crisis comes.

As George Orwell said, 'In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.' "
