    We know anything coming from a prisoner is unheard of, society only ever hears of negatives, never positive, but some behind bars are capable of empathy, remorse and lifting up others from despair.

    If I’m in this world and making a difference in a positive way, then I am honoring my gift.
  • Jeff, 53
