“All too often, time spent in a correctional institution becomes stagnant time, time lost or – worse – painful torturous time.  With the help of literature and the ideas contained within, my time has been one of reflection, growth and insight. True “corrections” not found through punishment. By simply learning to calm myself and seek some tranquility within my head, the negative, boisterous and hateful words around me come and go with little notice. With mere ink on paper I cannot begin to explain how perfectly you fit into the sequence of my life.

Everything for a reason and everything in its place. As the quote suggests, to be amongst noise, trouble and violence and still find peace in your heart is a beautiful thing.”
