Why I Do This
12th of January, 2010. 4:50 PM. It was a Tuesday, and also my mom’s birthday. To the rest of the world, this was the fateful day of the Haiti Earthquake. To me, it was the day God gave me freedom. Before the Earthquake, I had spent two years and 11 months in prison. Before the Earthquake, I spent another eight Months in the Dominican Republic. after this life-changing experience, I loved the fast life: women, cars, money, smoking weed, and drinking booze.
Life felt great. I just needed to be rich, and it would all be perfect. Little did I know that God had something life-changing in store for me. Haiti Penitentiary Prison was about to become my new home. It was there that I was stripped of my dignity as a man, humbled and shamed to the point that I had nothing left to lose. It was also there that I came face-to-face with the truth. Walk through my story with me, and see for yourself.
