A guest speaker came in to speak to us today, Jagada Chambers. His book is entitled Based on a True Story. It is about the period of his life from his arrest till the end of his trial. Upon examining everything that went wrong and the lessons he learned, he decided to share it with the world. His book is opening up doors for him to speak before crowds of at-risk youth. Someday I see myself doing exactly what he is doing.
Paul Pommells has been an inmate of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for more than twenty years, and has learned much about himself, his fellow inmates, and where one can find the hope and power to change.
Paul and other inmates & friends bare their souls in words here.
