One of the greatest loves anyone can experience is having the ability to feel a deep clearness of concern for another person. Now I have the capacity to love myself and others and their feelings as well, in the sense of true concern. Because now I do know, it's not all about me all the time. I have to think about others too. First, I must see and value myself as a good person worthy of being loved as others love themselves and their families. Who am I? Now I'm a person who has to think of others as well as myself. Once I've made this change, then I know I was the cause of the problem dealing with other people, not them.

As I learn these programs about violence and the magnitude of impact especially with life crimes, I know there is never just one victim. I share this with my ability to understand who and how my crime affected me and affected others.

Yes, there were many people I hurt that were around me like family and friends. Being a father, a son, and a teacher of men here in prison, I now can look honestly into myself and my past actions, so I can help others as well as myself.

p.s. Do you men and women on the outside know who you are?
