Thank you @does_dc and @dccareerconnections for allowing me to give a message and empower the 16 young men and women graduates, and thanks to the young man who spoke before and shared his challenges of moving forward.
I closed with something everyone should believe in.

Everyone has a story to tell, a lesson to teach, and wisdom to share. Life is a beautiful masterpiece bound together by your experience. Open up share your story, become an inspiration to others. You can make a difference you matter. You were created with a purpose. Live your life with intentions, go out there and make a difference by being the difference.
Have you look in the mirror lately ?

I been raise from the dead and brought back to life for one reason, to please God as his humble servant.
Ask yourself the question why are you here.

Restored the Vote Press Release
I want to thank Councilmember Robert White for his leadership and commitment to addressing voting rights for the District's incarcerated residents. Earlier this year I shared the Commission on Re-Entry and Returning Citizen Affairs key priorities which included expanding voting rights to incarcerated District residents with felony convictions. Enacting this legislation will secure an expansion of rights for thousands of District residents and help lead a national effort.
We as DC residents, advocates, Councilmemebers, and Commissioner’s support the Restore the Vote Amendment Act 2019.

Everything you do should be an expression of your purpose. If a activity doesn't fit that formula you wouldn't work on it.
If you're not excited to get to work on Monday you should be putting together a plan immediately to get out of what you're doing. So Many of you reading this and dreading the weekend is over and you need to get back to doing thing you don't enjoy. That's not a way to live.
You have one life and you are the CEO of your life.

Today Ready Set Grow program ask questions from our Dunbar youth. To help them transition from behaviors patterns to compliance.
.
Who are you?
What do you value the most?
And they had to write there answer on the board so we could see apart of them that they don’t share, we had this discussion to open up and also talk about there biggest challenges right now.
We have to get to the core of the problem if we want our kids to be successful, create a safe atmosphere so we can support each other.
We will set the Foundation to introduce this to all DCPS, my goal is every child the @hope_foundation_reentry_networ come in contact with will be safe, successful and educated.
Give them what you didn’t have....

State of Emergency
Thinking about where I come from ( the pit of hell ) by choice, I became a product of my environment, but this is unacceptable ....our kids are dying because we won't acknowledge the ELEPHANT 🐘 in the room..... we are to busy talking about returning citizens but there's a generation that are getting prime and ready to fill the jails which will continue to reproduce new slaves. I take this personal because one I'm a Returning Citizens and two I understand the brokenness that being represented ..... they are being influenced by this lifestyle that I call the Death style...... and the media not only to misrepresent us but DESTROY US.....

02/24/2019

I told myself the bottom is too crowded, was my motivation to excel, the transformation started as soon as I went into solitary confinement to be processed for population, 30 days to process all of the sh*t I put myself through, how I left my daughter without a father and I just turned 37 in the hole.
.
.
.
I was fed up with how I let the lifestyle and drugs ruin my careers and the success that I dreamed as a child, what happened?
.
How did I end up at the bottom?
Certified Plumber
Certified in Culinary
Manager for Stores
Special Police with a gun
Scholarchips in Architectural Drafting
What happened? How did I end up in a bandominium looking out the windows like Malcolm X, trying to see who I could prey on.
My mom work to hard to see her son as a certified bum. See the story is real and I have one, it’s not pretty and I’m not ashamed of it.
BECAUSE IT CREATED WHAT YOU SEE TODAY!!!!
The hit to this is, this is not a fad, this is my life ...... my pain has been the urn into my passion, I live, breath transformation and recovery.
The only I did perfect after being released in 9/29/07 was I QUIT......
The streets , the drugs, the distribution, the friends, and my thinking.
People think I hey can walk out of jail and jump right in position, nope you have to crawl before you walk.... and I started with a air mattress and sometimes I woke up on the floor, with third party custody clothes from Salvation Army, and one pair of Jordans my nephew gave me.
THE BOTTOM IS WHERE I COME FROM.

Educate them youngins, keep planting seeds 🌱 get in there way, be a mentor pull them out of the street for a day, have lunch with them, be an influence, let them see something other than the streets. If you be consistent with watering the seed,
THE STREETS WILL BECOME UNATTRACTIVE AND THEY WILL LOOK FOR YOUR GUIDANCE......
I’ve broken at least 20 cycles of dysfunction with kids I’ve came in contact with, became families to parents and began to be a buffer in the household.

I think we started something, the Ready Set Grow program has become a safe place for giving our youth reinforcement why Education is important. We started with 6 to 8 now the referrals are coming in from teachers from different grades. Thank you @randrentertainment for pouring into our kids with following their dreams, connecting to resources and working through difficulties and challenges.
We’re going to give them all we got and the resources to helping them to become successful.

You never know what’s will happen when you have a good heart, I will continue to serve people in the capacity that God allows me.
It should never be a competition but a team, and if you have team players they will help you and not sit on the side line and watch you fail.
Remember when can only build our community with love, not malice and division.

Greetings: We'd like to introduce you to Project New Opportunity! Project New Opportunity launched in April 2016 with the mission of providing reentry support to individuals in federal prisoners who received clemency (sentence commutations) from President Obama and individuals in federal prison whose sentences following conviction of a drug crime were reduced in accordance with revised federal sentencing guidelines ("Drugs Minus Two" or "Rule 782" sentence modifications). Project New Opportunity was designed to work around some of the systemic problems in federal reentry. You can learn more about Project New Opportunity (PNO) from our web site at www.projectnewopportunity.org. We'd very much like to be connected with you. We'd like to ask your support by way of "likes" on our Face book page, links on your web page, and mentions in social media. We will be adding a page with links to national and state reentry organizations who share our aspirations and commitment to help people leaving prisons and jails navigate the path to freedom, meet challenges and find their place in this world. We'd like to know your organizations' interest in the issues we are confronting. Thank you for considering this request. Please reach out to us if you have questions and let us know if you find the information on our web site useful. The PNO Team in Washington, D. C: Malcolm Young, Project Director Norman Brown, Deputy Project Director Lucinda Greene, Project Administrator
