April 8

No picture today, my friends. Yesterday was my ninth visit to the Lane Murray Unit in Gatesville, Texas with Truth Be Told, a program which goes into women’s prisons and guides them through telling the stories of their lives that led to incarceration. Last night, the women were asked what they have learned, in these nine weeks, about the human heart. Again and again, they said, “That it can be mended.”

Prisoners in white
Each heart etched by fear and hope
Forgiveness can mend
