For the past 10 weeks, I’ve been participating in a public speaking program for the formerly incarcerated called “Raising My Voice.” I was selected to read my story as the commencement speech. At a later date, I will probably add more reflective thoughts. But for now, I hope you listen. I hope you feel. I hope you laugh. I hope you Love. I hope you feel my Pain. I hope you see yourself in me. Please feel free to share and leave comments.
