my name is will, I am 38 years old and have been incarcerated since I was 22, I will be out in early 2034. this is my ice breaker or introduction.
I felt like a young kid who was grasping life by the seat of my pants, one foot in the game and one foot in the family life. I sold weed to make tons of side money, always had a good job and worked hard. The game took me down an unexpected journey, prison!
I never really knew what prison was like or even about other then what I saw on TV or movies, Shawshank Redemption was my idea of prison. It became my reality after being sentenced to murder, they sent me to Walla Walla, the states penitentiary.
after nearly 15 years since my start of this sentence I feel like a voice is inside me who could reach the youth and tell a story that could maybe help. even if its one person maybe the ripple effect could travel and reach their family.
my thoughts behind blogging are truly motivated by positive change and paying it forward. I brought a group of men together years ago and we made an oath we would reach the community of youth through our real life testimony, in hopes for positive change. I am so far behind with technology that this seams very foreign to me,but new and exciting. I am willing to take a chance at something new and opening new doors will hopefully bring new fruits of life my way.
I would like to share in my first blog one of my stories on stealing, if anyone would be interested in hearing it. its a form of stealing that many people don’t think of in the term of stealing. in my group of guys we picked a variety of topics we chose to write our stories or testimony on and stealing happened to be one of them.
however, this is my ice breaker so they say in Toastmasters.
