Philip L

“During the time from when I caught my case until now, I had to do some serious soul-searching, and it hit home that I am very flawed and have to change, or else I will lose my family and myself.  I was in therapy for 2 years prior to incarceration, which helped me to forgive myself and correct the worst flaws.  However, it is this class that really helped me to forgive those who I feel hurt me during my formative years.  It is this pain that I carried with me through adulthood that burned through me like poison.  Now that I’ve forgiven these people, I feel much more whole than I did before, and I thank you, chaplains, for helping me.  It’s a gift I’ll never forget and always cherish.
