  Why it would be nice to write to me.
I do not want to be in a position to beg anyone to write to me, I think there are a few people that perhaps me writing something will assist them with deciding to write to me.

I watched the "Coach Carter" movie today and was reminded about how important an individual is. While we tend to be a mass-market type of country, individuals can and still make a difference, and we certainly need more persons that are willing to really put themselves into their work and life.

I have learned a lot about life, the way I have treated people in the past, the power I have had and abused. I have had over six years of personal counseling from a professional psychologist, and while my past actions will always be a part of me, I think I am a very different person today.

I did do some things that were very abusive and my actions are nothing I am proud of. Questions that I have not really answered were due in part to the nature of this blog and my desire to remain anonymous. This was not done to pull the wool over anyone's eyes or to portray me as a saint.

I am surrounded and reminded twenty-four hours a day of what my actions have led to. I have never tried to deny the accusations made against me and I am willing to discuss my past with you in an open and honest conversation if you would desire to do that.

I am not a violent person and you would never be in any danger just from communicating with me.

I feel I have a story to tell that others may be able to learn from and apply certain aspects to their lives.

The question I have, and one that might not come through on the blog is: okay, I have been convicted and I have accepted responsibility for my actions, I am due to get out of prison eventually, at some point, provided I do not die first. But is there any type of a life I can have?

One tiny step in that direction is whether I can begin to communicate with other adults, and begin to develop some sort of relationship, even if it is only in writing via the U.S. Post Office.
