3 Student Comments
–  “I am 35 years old, been in prison 10 times – state and federal, come from good parents. Your course has really given me that push to realize that I can turn all this into something positive and helpful to others even though it has started through greed, addiction and selfishness on my part.”
–  “I’ve been incarcerated for 11 years come July 10th.  Over the last 4 months I’ve been struggling to hang on to hope, hope of freedom, or hope of a higher quality of life for myself, and those around me.   You and your associates have given me back hope, and a renewed belief in the good of the human race. “
–  “You are great for trying to help the way you do. Most people despise “inmate criminals,” and you see us as human beings with potential for good, who have value and deserve love and help.  I love you for that.  It is a rare quality to not look down on such as us.”
