Welcome. Life after jail isn’t easy is it? Nobody knows that better than you and your loved ones. Though I’m a non-con,I know it too. My name is Joe Bell and in my years of experience counseling parolees, I’ve seen close up, the face of flickering hope and the hard reality you’re up against: the big bad world and the bad old self.
I’ve seen "your face" too: the face of real change and true commitment to a better life.
Well, relax—since you’re not a client I can be a friend. Ex-convicts, criminals, drug addicts ... the so called “scourge” of society (as some would say)—as far as I’m concerned are simply people who’ve either lost their way, thought they were on it or else never knew it.
They’re brothers and sisters gone astray, fellow travelers on the road of life hung up in the breakdown lane. True, some have gone from the breakdown lane into the ditch and even right over the embankment, but haven’t we all in some respect or to some degree?
I think so.
