There are over two million people incarcerated in the United States. What if your child was among them? What if your loved one made the wrong choices throughout their life and finally ended up in prison? What would you do? This book tells the story of my son and his journey to incarceration in a federal prison. It also tells of his gang affiliation with the Aryan Warriors and their influence in prisons across the country.
Most of his life, my son has had difficulties following the rules. For years, I tried everything I could to help him learn how to deal with his demons. Nothing worked. He could not seem to live a normal life without alcohol, drugs, and crime. The nights I spent lying awake, waiting for the phone to ring or to hear that he was injured, jailed, or dead cannot be counted. The days spent trying to find an answer spun out month after month and year after year, until my worst fears came true.
Every single person in a jail or prison has a loved one or family member who has been affected by their incarceration. This book gives a voice to all of the families out there, waiting on the outside. Continue reading →
