Troy Davis died at 11:08 p.m. Eastern time, Sept. 21, 2011.

On the day before his state-sponsored murder, he had this to say:

"The struggle for justice doesn't end with me. This struggle is for all the Troy Davises who came before me and all the ones who will come after me. I'm in good spirits and I'm prayerful and at peace. But I will not stop fighting until I've taken my last breath."

According to media witnesses, Davis maintained his innocence until the end, telling the family of the off-duty officer he was convicted of killing that he was innocent. His last words were: "For those about to take my life, may God have mercy on your souls; may God bless your souls."

In the dystopic world that we have created, where right is wrong and wrong is right, we must pray not only for Davis's soul, but for the day when injustices such as this never, ever happen again. Troy Davis is at peace now, having fought his battle for justice. It's up to us to to make sure this never, ever happens again.
