The words you are about to hear spring from the hearts, minds, and mouths of the youngest members of America’s prison system.
Writing from within juvenile halls across the country, these young men, women, girls and boys reveal childhoods and teen years so often defeated by aspects of the lives they have lived so far.
Refuge can be found in the inner life. A way back out is through their words.

Standing on the edge of almost me
Amidst the almost touch of being free
Realising the impact of why I was born
Accepting my life was meant to personify reform.
With thousands more who walk the path of dread
Someone needs provide a different way instead
I recognise who Sara is…do you?
Stop Human Trafficking, Save Sara and the thousands upon thousands of girls who are helpless and trapped in a world they can barely comprehend.
Free Sara Kruzan, the Change starts here!

I find myself sickened by the charges pending against 13-year-old Cristian Fernandez.
I am outraged that this child has been thrown into the criminal justice system and, hence, faces charges that carry a possible sentence of life without parole.
