Meet Anthony…

In here I really got to know myself. I learned the biggest thing that gets in the way of meeting my goals is myself.

Incarcerated: 2 years
Housed: Fayette, Pennsylvania

In here I really got to know myself. I learned the biggest thing that gets in the way of meeting my goals is myself. You get out of being in prison what you out in. I wanted change so I put my head into reading and learning and not into drama or trouble. The key for me to be able to come home and do good is knowing I have the support, and friendship of the outside world. If I put as much work into being a great man as I have in building my name on the streets and prison, I know in the future the sky’s the limit for me!ed. The most basic hurt inflicted by my death by incarceration is a lifetime of boredom, loneliness, doubt and anxiety punctuated by piercing moments of insight into my feelings as a human being.

 

If the goal of my sentencing judge was to make me suffer for the remaining days of my life, then she succeeded. I wish the goal was for justice not to punish a man for life for an armed robbery of a Pizzeria with a toy gun and $149 to support a drug habit. Will I die un-mourned and a disgrace in the eyes of society?
