All my supporters,
I want to thank each and every one of you for the dedicated, loving, and heartfelt support. Each of you has served a valuable and vital role in my surviving the effects of the abuse, trauma of my family’s deaths, and the last 24 years in prison. I would not be who I am today without my family’s unconditional support, and the many empowering friendships both locally and around the world. You have shared your joy and sorrows, hurts and healing, and together we have become more from the fellowship. From inside prison, you became my safe place, allowed me to process the abuse and share, and over the past two decades help me transition from victim to survivor. I will never forget the gifts you each provided, by your words and actions, that insured that hope of a second chance never died. You helped me see the potential I possessed as an advocate, man, Christian, human being, and by simply being me. You helped me find myself beneath the pain, and together we’ve risen above it to heal. I know without a doubt who I am, what I have to offer, and the need there is for survivors to empower other victims in their recovery. We can do this together like we have all this time, and that is in love, by faith, and unwavering hope. Please pray for our favor with all those involved, and that the Governor makes a grace-filed decision of a second chance.
