Today a good friend went to his parole hearing. Before walking out of the housing unit for the hearing, we formed a prayer circle around him. All of our hopes were with him, as he's one of the good guys. He's done a lot to help others. Now was our time to support him. I think he was shocked by the level of support that he got. Halfway through the prayers, the big guys started to cry.

Paul and other inmates & friends bare their souls in words here.
