UPDATE -a question for my readers
February 20, 2013 § 29 Comments
a few days ago i posted a question. many of you responded by posting comments, or sending e-mails. today i have decided to go through with this project.
i am not telling my story to convince others i am not guilty. nor am i attempting to say the prison systems in this country need to be abolished (there are people who belong in prison. trust me on that). i just want to share my stories and experiences. maybe that will help effect a change in the system, as well as our hearts and minds.
they will be recording the first one (or two) over the weekend, and posted early next week. i will keep you updated.
my amazon books/profile
as many of you know, i spent some time in a federal prison. it was during that incarceration that i was able to rediscover my voice, and passion for writing. and that period of time has become the subject of my memoirs (to be published in 2014).
some fiends of mine, who find my stories interesting, would like to tape me telling stories of my time in prison, and post them to YouTube. some of these stories found their way into the book, many did not. would you be interested in seeing them?
these will not be video postings of one who seeks to deny his guilt. i was guilty of my crimes. rather, these would be the stories of my experiences: what i endured, witnessed, and felt. i do believe there are those who belong in prison; yet, the system of corrections needs to change.
so, if you feel it would be worthwhile for these videos to be made, and posted, please let me know.
thank you, in advance, for your reply.
with hands palm to palm, your servant,
