About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

It has been said that a wise man learns from the mistakes of others. Don’t Let This Be Your Story—How to Make Better Choices captures the true stories of men who have been incarcerated --- the decisions they made and the consequences of their choices. These essays serve as a cautionary tale for today’s youth and will help parents, family members, teachers, clergy, counselors, social workers, law enforcement professionals, and others who care about our youth. It is also an excellent study for young people who want to avoid the life-changing mistakes others have made.

This workbook will touch on the most sensitive issues of life: family values, responsibility, money, education, friendship and love from the hearts of these men. When the damage is done, who will put the pieces back together? The key in this book is the role of the family unit – the duties of the parents to teach ideals, morals, responsibility, trust, loyalty, finance, literacy and above all – love for others.

Don’t Let This Be Your Story – How to Make Better Choices is my attempt to reach out with wisdom to those in the dark and show them the light and say “yes” to the question I believe to be of utmost importance, “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
