    one of the most important messages you can get from this is...how much things can change when you go to prison. how much you can miss out on, while you're in prison. while he was in, he lost all his family, his friends, all the things he knew before he went in had changed so drastically when he got out that it was hard for him to connect the dots. there are so many black men going to prison over bs...thinking that earns them their "hardness" stripes. we need to get over that. DO WE NEED TO BE THE BADDEST PERSON IN THE WORLD? forty-four years of freedom is a lot of years to give up; just surviving forty-four years in prison is an accomplishment. but when you think of all the things you miss out on, you should realize that it's not worth it.
