One of my neighbors approached me with an idea for a new rehabilitative group we could start in this prison. We would write and organize plays with rehabilitative themes. I loved the idea. It is aligned with my long term goals. I want to write plays and movies that do the same thing. We're both excited about this idea. As we spoke, I had a piece of paper and pen in hand, writing all of our ideas down.
