Favorite Quote:

“To me, one day in prison is too long. One day away from my family is too long. The first 6-8 weeks was brutal because all of a sudden I was thrown into an environment where I have no control. I used to be able to deal with problems, solve them, and handle situations and this was the first I couldn’t.”
