Not every man can say that he has inspiration to be his best. In fact, very few men have such a thing.

Having said this I must confess to being a very fortunate individual. I would even argue that I might be the luckiest man alive. You see my friends, not only have I found a purpose I can sink my teeth into, I have also managed to build relationships with the most special people I have ever met in my life.

I have always had my church family to depend on. My best friend, of course, shines like a beacon on a clear night. Some of these special people have been befriended online. Best of all, the woman who took me in when I was released from prison has been a true jewel.

I think about the fight I've committed myself to with some apprehension. The rights of prisoners is something I give my heart to, but I am fast learning that my hardest fights in this cause will be against so-called internet activists--if I let that happen. Which I won't.

My commitment is something not many will understand or are used to. I was in a prison where inmates were beaten, sexually assaulted, starved and a few times killed by guards. I can't walk away from that without a craving for justice. Notice I said justice and not vengeance. Revenge would be subjecting the bastards to the same treatment they dished out.

Sounds like the death penalty doesn't it?

No matter what I will have to endure, I can be confident that my friends won't let me fall flat on my face. Their willingness to accept me as I am and to support me shows me how great human beings can be. They encourage me, without knowing it, to keep up the good fight.

I find myself spread a little thin, but I can handle that as long as I have true friends around me. You all know who you are. I love you.

Always real;

  1. you will be able to tell the real from the fake, always. A friend just is! Not because they have to nor because they want to, they just are, when people click they click no explaining it. You find out who your true friends are sooner or later.

    keep doing what you do. I am new to the incaceration process, but am willing to do whatever needs to be done. So I haven't a clue other than what my son has told me, and my cousin and a few friends. But I know what I read and hear is real, and not right.

  2. You must beware who you befriend online, there are much more foes than friends. Many people use the internet to escape their reality life, lying about causes, employment, physicality, marital status, even gender. So take heed when forging these relationships, they may not all be in your best interest in fact you could guarantee that only ten percent are truly genuine. Unfortunately you may only find out this through trial and error. The eyes are the window to the soul, so if perhaps you can not look into someones eyes face to face only take who they say they are at their apparent internet value. Armor up thy girth.
