I can’t imagine how it must feel to be here. I wonder if any of you may feel anything at all because being confined with less to no freedom can you make you numb, lifeless. My intent is to bring you back to life by saying most of us are in a prison. Most of us out there are confined by our pains, decisions and beliefs that chains us to a reality that keeps us from truly living. The difference between us out there and you all here is that it is obvious of the prison your in. But you don’t have to see that way.

There is purpose for you being here because here is a place where you can find healing. Here is a place that you have no choice but to face yourself. Revaluate your choices and change.

You will begin to release the invisible chains with healing because that is where true transformation is. When you change you can become a real asset to life because other people will be inspired by that change.

I believe purpose means you not going through this for nothing. Purpose is also reason to why you were born. 

Terrell Dorsey and even I am is example of that. He took his prison background and turned it into an organization that helps teens not make mistakes he made. What better to think that maybe something bigger then him made him go through it to keep from 100, 1000’s maybe even help millions to not make same mistakes.

I was at risk teen and was fortunate to make my changes early but if I had not been through that I would be here doing what I love. But that doesn’t leave anyone out. Each of you too could have unique story to tell. But first I encourage you to heal. Then my promise to you, whether in here or when you get out, you too can be beautiful and make a real difference.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

I will leave you with this:

“Healing is the gateway to peace and peace is the path to passion and purpose.”
