Prisoner on Book Discussion

One prisoner recently made the following comments.  "I really love the book discussions we have in the prison library.  You see, when we were on the street we have to show off that we were tough men.  We don't show our feelings. In here we read this book and find the character in the book has the sames issues we have.  It takes a  little while, but after a time the brothers  in the book discussion group  begin to open up.  Nobody is judging you  and we feel a little freer to explore our feelings since more or less we all share the same experience."
" It all happened in the library",  he said.
