  • I’ve spent more time in prison than most of you in this room have. Luckily, the guards always let me out at the end of the day.  I wasn’t doing time, but rather I was spending time in prison trying to help people prepare for turning life around once they got out. Most of my work was actually done in halfway houses, where I tried to help people achieve their goals and keep from going back behind bars. I like to think that at least a few of my clients learned something from me. I can say with confidence that I learned from them. Your first reaction might be to think that if someone has landed themselves in prison, they probably don’t have life all figured out, and they’re probably not someone who you would want to emulate. In fact, most people probably think that the most we can learn from someone in prison is a cautionary tale about what NOT to do in life. But truly, some of the people I met I halfway houses were among the most strong, determined, thoughtful, and inspiring people I know. Most people who end up in prison have faced most obstacles before the age of 12 than I’ll ever face in my lifetime. And while some of these people were seemingly crushed by these experiences, others rebounded after prison and were able to support and inspire others in a similar journey.
