Off to Nanaimo to get my security clearance to speak at the jail that I left almost 3 years ago. On December 8th 2016, I walked out a free man in more ways than one and started my spiritual journey in recovery. Today I am returning to gain clearance in order to share my testimony. I was hoping I’d never have to go back but now I’m actually looking forward to it. I find public speaking painfully awkward but each time I do it I feel elation and it drives me forward to the next challenge. Jail was where I found recovery, in my suffering I asked for help and was delivered. Now I live to tell others about it. No one should die a horrible death, love is within each one of us and we can harness that love. The truth shall set you free.
