It was last Friday, May 4, 2012 and I just signed up to this site. I decided to start a discussion...
Boy, was that a decision!
Not only was I making the decision to reach out to others in the DOC, but I reaching out to people that I do not know, will never see, and who don't know me from the next jerk on the street. What will happen?
I seem to have sparked a nerve or light a small fire...
I cannot believe the love, kindness, generosity, simply out-pouring of support I received. Are these people real? YES, they are. Are they just like me, just as lost and confused, scared and anxious, eager and excited? Yes, they are.
...so much so that just after 1 day my discussion had 3 pages of replies and so many that it became featured on that Saturday.
WOW, this is a big deal.
Now is my turn to give back... I am here to say, that I plan to take up writing here, a blog note, as often as I can. I want to make myself accountable to each of you. I have nothing to lose. Actually, I take that back... now that I have found all of you... I have a TON to lose. I have a chance to lose your support, kind words, love and generosity. That is priceless and that I am grateful for....
So, here I go..
