I never got to thank you for giving me a new life! I am prisoner #2431, receiver of your gift of respect, confidence, and future. You had faith in me like no one before. You trusted me to learn computer data entry then to teach others. (Still my profession, thank you for a lifetime of knowledge.) You trusted me to go, with others, to high schools to hopefully enlighten students to the dangers and consequences of drugs. I hope, through your guidance we succeeded altering young lives. You trusted me to be the first on work release, to pave the future for others to be rehabilitated and give them hope. Thank you, Ms. Mitchell, for giving me and countless others, the gift of a decent life.
