"It's a challenge to stay positive. I spent 15 years on death row, but I've been out for 9 years this coming August. Since my release, I've been mentoring kids, working on establishing my own business, and sharing my testimony so other people won't have to go through the same thing I did. I'm working with a gang awareness program now. Kids think it's cool to go to jail and build up a reputation, but I tell them the ugly side of that kind of life. My focus is to try and stop the juveniles from causing themselves and their families grief."
