This is one of the best stories about preservation in a prison I have ever heard.
Josh spent 16 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. He sought comfort in God.
He was the baddest of the bad with a murder rap and life sentence in prison. Noone expected Jerry Balone to become a Christian.
I have friend in prison and his experiences echo Jerry’s experience here.
Charity was in her final semester at college when she was abducted by three guys trying to impress members of the Crips gang.

Wow! This guy not only has a problem–at the very end of the video he gives a radical answer to his problem. Look also at what struggle his wife goes through in coming to the decision to forgive him.

This guy was looking for love and he found it in the most unlikely place–to him.
Angelo grew up moving from one relative’s house to the next. When the Latin Kings offered to be his family, he did not hesitate to join the gang.

This has been a week about rape it seems!!
We have the DSK(Dominique Strauss-Kahn) story that has filled the headlines. If you don’t know about that story you can read here or here. Then, I just found this article where French women are reacting to misogyny in their media and french men attempting to put Strauss-Kahn’s alleged acts into the French context–read, explain away.
Next, I saw two stories of how young boys were lead into homosexuality through rape at ages too young for them to even be involved in anything sexual. It is graphic but you can see their stories here or here.
But, this one is the one that gets me–the massive assault on women that is occurring in the Congo. And, the very sad thing is that it has been occurring for approximately 10 years it would appear. Well, the story out this week is that the number of rapes and sexual assaults is actually much higher than previously reported.
Men, wake up!! Men, rise up!! Get a life! The sex drive is a strong drive but you are blinded if you let it drive you. God help us all in this area!!! The values of the pop culture in America are not helping shape norms which prevent these type atrocities either. We are all to blame in some way–I am. I am contemplating what I should do about this–personally and globally!!
