Yesterday I shared part of my story with a group of Lifer's at the Chowchilla Men's Prison. This group of men is freer than many of the folks that I meet 'outside'. At the end of our time together I asked them if they would be willing to share a message with the folks that are coming to the PACT meeting today (Probation and Community Team), these are the men and women who have just been released from jail and prison. Here is some of the things they had to say:
WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN
AND WHERE YOU ARE NOW ARE SMALL
MATTER COMPARED WITH WHERE YOU ARE GOING
THE CHOICE IS YOURS. STAY HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
