Rebecca Owens spoke Sunday about pain, but not about punishment, about responsibility, but not about revenge. She was 8 years old when her father was murdered -- shot twice in the back at close range. She is 35 today and will not say whether Stanley Tookie Williams should be executed next month for the 1979 murders of Albert Owens and three others in Southern California.

Still, these teenagers knew more than most adults about politics, and most held even stronger opinions than their parents about the upcoming presidential election.
