You have affected my life in a very positive way. What you have done for us means a lot to me. Thank you very much. I had started attending the PEP classes because they were mandatory and looked good for when I have to go up before the parole board. I didn’t realize that after two classes, not only would I be very interested and anxious to attend the next class, but that it would also change the way that I feel about myself and the world, as well as awaken me to myself.
My past was not a very bright one. I joined the Marine Corp at 17 years old. By 21, I had already been on two deployments, seen a lot of death and destruction, and almost lost my life. I completed my military journey after 4 years and got out to my mother passing away, as well as a list of other unfortunate events. This all led to negative thinking and actions, which brought me here to prison.
Prem, you have brought a new light to my life. Thanks to you and your videos, I have
rediscovered the peace inside of me. You have taught me that life is my story and I can write it the way I want. You have awakened me to a lot of positive things that I knew I had inside of me but had buried. Thank you so much, Prem, for the inspiration you have given me and a second chance of making my life the best I can. Your videos have truly changed my life and my way of thinking.
