Recently, I've found myself very excited to talk a lot of friends who made no effort to talk to me when I was at Pelican Bay State Prison. Crazy, huh? I had a few different people ask me why am I not mad? My response was, "We all have intentionally or unintentionally hurt someone we care for. I know I hurt a lot of my loved ones by being involved in a lifestyle that thrived on terrorizing our communities." So I cannot act like I am forgiven for that. I cannot ask for forgiveness, but be not willing to forgive. Anyone can be upset and bitter, but it takes an authentic, humble, strong person to forgive!

So to all of you who may be afraid to reach out to me because you are under the perception that I'm not mad at you, all is forgiven! Grudges and bitterness does not live in my heart! In life, we hurt people and people hurt us. The lesson is growing from that pain, and turning that negative experience into strength! Forgiveness is the ultimate show of strength! It shoes those that hurt us we understand we're all human; hurting each other is our nature. But today is a new day. Let's focus on learning how not to hurt each other and rebuild friendships!

Stay Prayed Up!
