Earlier this month I took the opportunity to share what it was like to come to prison for the first time…
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,
says the Lord; thoughts of peace, and not of bad,
to provide you to with a good and happy ending.
It's been said that failure isn't final...
Casting all your care upon the Lord,
because He cares for you.
1 Peter 5:17
I cannot recall how many times I have read this verse from the apostle Peter's first letter to his fellow Christians…
All these years later he still laughs about it like it was not a big deal...
My years inside the walls of the infamous Attica Prison were memorable ones...
To every thing there is a season, and a time
to every purpose under the heaven.
I was happy to leave Attica...
Having left Attica some forty years ago I can look back and see that it was a learning experience...
Yesterday I wrote about my experience with the first emotion on my list, "disbelief"...
Once a man walks through the doors of a prison and they close behind him, it has to affect him.
Arriving at the notorious Attica prison back in 1978 was quite an experience...
