Annette said, "Honey I know you were probably in over a hundred different cages like the ones these dogs are in but you made it. Having lived through it, what would you say are the most important things that need to happen to help other prisoners make the change into good role models?" That was the million dollar question, but actually, how can you put a price on a human being..? I thought about how I turned it around. My Spiritual connection to God started it by realizing that even if nobody else in the world loved me, God did. If everyone else accused me, God forgave me. Back then, sitting in a cell for the umpteenth time feeling this wisdom wash over me, I focused on finding a way to turn everything I'd been through into a blessing. I smiled at my wife and answered, "The first thing is love. It's just like with these dogs, if you love them they will be the most loyal friends you could ever have. The next stage is direction. The prisoners need a way to put all their energy in a positive direction. The next vitally important step is faith. Once the prisoners or released prisoners see that other people believe in them, that they too can benefit the community, find employment, have a family and fit in, they will start believing a life in a fruitful direction is possible. When all this happens, hope opens up new doors. The reason 7 out of 10 released California prisoners return back to prison within three years is because they have no hope."

The one message that came from this story, the one that grabs you and demands attention. Hope!
We all need it. Thanks for reminding us this again.
Back to our story about a prison in California... This huge prison was built in a small town. Because of the jobs the prison provided, this formerly poor town began to prosper. The prisoners were treated inhumanely by the prison guards; as a result, many prisoners rebelled and were put in a different area of the prison. In effect, prisoners were staying in prison longer than their original sentences; how's that for job security (for the guards)? The attempts to improve the prison were not as successful as how the animal shelter had been improved. The prisoners went on a hunger strike, but that didn't seem to help. The author had sent mail to people in the prison; much of the mail never got to the intended recipients.
This book was gifted to me, but knowing what I know now, it's well worth 99 cents (even $2.99). This book might make you angry, like it did me, but as a result, I am a better-informed person on this subject.
I remember when I stopped for every stray animal and took it home to find it a home or to the animal shelter... There are so many out there now, that when I see them... I turn my head. If I didn't I would cry ... I can't help them all...
I remember every time I saw a homeless person, I went and bought food and took it back to them, can't helped them all now... There are too many, so again I turn my head.
I remember every time I saw some one walking or broke down I stopped to lend a hand.... Can't any more,it's too dangerous.
How many times have I sat in my nice home in comfort and hang my head in shame, because I can't help every one, I can't fix every thing.. I can't be the person I know I am? Too many...
This book made me see the injustices of how things really are.. It made me ashamed of who we have become as a people...
If you have any emphethy for an other living being this book will touch your soul.
Thank you Glenn for giving me the opportunity to reflect on my soul.. And for having the courage to write this!
Glenn Langohr has a way of opening a person up to other things that happen that we usually do not hear about.
Today I am recommending that all of my friends and family get into this group of books and learn a few things about another type of life that is even more difficult than our own on a daily basis. The threats and chances of life being ended are so much more intense in these books.
Check this author out his is amazing. Thank you Glenn Langohr!!
