Today, I see the law as a guide to keep us straight, and it is also a reality check for most.
I thought I had life figured out and the law couldn’t tell me nothing, I lived by my own law. Living with different people who were just like me, doing drugs, partying, and chasing a false reality.
Until the most dreadful moment of my life. I committed a crime that led me towards taking somebody’s life. Right then a new reality struck me deeply. I’m currently locked up with a 20 year sentence for manslaughter. Before my incarceration I was lost in the wind, with no guidance. While being incarcerated after all these years, I came to realize my actions were indeed wrong and so was my thinking. During my time here I’ve started rehabilitating myself spiritually, mentally and physically.
I took a class that would help develop cognitive skills so you can make better choices now and in your future. Today, I see the law as a guide to keep us straight, and it is also a reality check for most. Due to my circumstances, I’ve come to change for the better. I am also hoping this letter reaches you to stop and think before you make a false thinking pattern like I did, because the law will serve you, or it will help you according to your actions!
