The following is what I said this morning 10/28/20 to about 20 new inmates who are mostly 18-30 yrs old and first-time inmates.
“Good morning MEN! I know for most of you this is the first time that you have been to prison. I and the other mentors in Men 101 want you to know that no matter how difficult the climb maybe during your journey while in prison, just know GOD is going to hold you up. Every one of you men in this room has their path they must bear. Walk yours with integrity and wish everybody else peace on their journey. When your paths with other men in this prison merge for whatever reason, and you meet positive men, rejoice for their presence in your life. When the paths are separated, return to wholeness of yourself, give thanks for the footprints left in your life and embrace the time to journey on your own.”
