Act 4 - Proctor Hangs

Today is a painful day for sure. John Proctor was given a second chance at life and he threw it all away for the sake of his pride. Poor Elizabeth, how will she do this alone? She has two young boys and a child on the way that she will have to care for. This is just a horrible situation.

There were many people present at the gallows today for the hanging of Rebecca Nurse, John Proctor, and Martha Corey. It was a sad sight to see all three of those people with a noose around their necks. It was evident that many people felt remorseful for Rebecca Nurse. I could not bear to watch her hang. She was such a good and honest women that everyone respected.

As they stood on the platform with the noose around their necks they began to recite the Lord's Prayer. It was a bittersweet moment for all. I know people in the town will surely miss them all.
