~Chapter 1~

How it all started

“You are hereby sentenced to three years at level five, to be suspended for one year of level three intensive probation, followed by one year at level two…”

To the average citizen, these words sounded like Greek, and meant absolutely nothing, but I could practically unscramble the mechanical recital in my sleep—jail time suspended for probation. Sounded pretty reasonable, right? Well hold that thought! As I sat there in the courtroom, hearing the same words week after week, after week, I felt a familiar stirring. I realized I was starting to get angry. For years, I had witnessed the same group of people—primarily young black males—being led to the podium like sheep to the slaughter. I was getting mad as hell at the devil for having all these males set up in this vicious, oppressive, recycling trap! Boy, was I filled with righteous indignation! The dull, empty look in their eyes told a familiar story—one of utter hopelessness and despair! Something needs to be done! I hissed under my breath. Do something, God!
The Promise: You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. ~Phillipians 4:13~
