12-Year-Old Girl Writes Incredibly Powerful Letter About The Bali Nine
Jessica Larter is only 12-years-old, but has this message for the Indonesian President.
Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chen are set to be executed, and a year 7 student has penned a letter to Indonesian President Joko Widodo asking him to spare their lives.
In the powerful letter, Jessica says that the two men have been helping others turn away from drugs.
She also writes about how the perception of Indonesia would possibly be transformed by stopping the execution.
"This year in school we are also learning Indonesian. The first thing that came to our class’s heads when our teacher mentioned Bali was the death penalty. If you forgive these men for what happened in the past and focus on their future maybe the year 7 class of 2016 will hear Bali and think of its beautiful beaches, its gorgeous scenery and wonderful people," she writes.
Here's the full letter from Jessica to the Indonesian President.
