Chicken Soup For the Soul

I recently submitted an entry to the Chicken Soup for the Soul Enterprises on the topic of redemption. My submission is entitled “Paying it Forward,” and it describes how prison helped transform me from a greedy man with no regard for the victims of my crime to a remorseful man whose purpose in life is now to help and inspire others to rise above seemingly insurmountable odds and not only survive, but to thrive. “Chicken Soup for the Prisoners Soul” inspired me to overcome my darkest days in prison by rising above my own seemingly insurmountable odds to help a large number of inmates improve their lives.
