I’m recently incarcerated at the county jail. My goal is to help all those young people going through trials and tribulations. I know you are probably thinking, “What does he know about what I’m going through.”
Your right, I don’t know what you are going through but I know what I’m trying to stop you from going through.
I was born on the Westside of Chicago, Illinois. At twelve years old, I was introduced to the street life. I quickly found myself in the criminal system. By fourteen I was locked-up for car- jacking. Now I’m eighteen years old and accused of murder. This is not the life you want to have: away from your family, away from your kids, away from the people that you love.
Listen to the people that are trying to help you, no matter who it is, before it’s too late. Young men and women of all races in criminal facilities are killing themselves because now they see that those caring individuals were trying to prevent what they eventually ended up going through. They might figure it’s over because the judge sentences them to life or the death penalty. It’s not over. It’s just the beginning. Find God and serve him. Walk straight and ask him to forgive you of your sins and build a personal relationship with God. You have to be ready to change because if not, you will not get the positive results. Instead, you will find yourself repeating that same negative cycle over and over again. A lot of human beings don’t think before they react. Use the 2 second rule. Take the time to think a second or two before reacting to a situation or conflict. The criminal facilities and cemeteries all over the world are filled with people that didn’t think. The two second rule will definitely play a major role in a new you. I hope this message can help save someone’s life, because it’s helping me change mine.
