Thank Johny Cash

A very thought provoking show

Johny Cash brought to the masses things they needed to know

He was the defender of the under dog

He saw prisoner’s pain and felt it all.

He is quoted saying this below:

'I don't see any good coming out of a prison.

You put them in like animals and tear the souls and guts out of them,

and let them out worse than they went in.'

This is true in jails today

they basically strip away

all of a person’s self esteem

they treat them like animals

and then demean…

Now from the standpoint the human race

Are we any more conscious of humans

Or are we known to treat other humans

with total disgrace?

There needs to be a change this very day

If we are to become a nation that is proud to say.

All for One and One for All

Do we really believe this is possible

or will are great Nation eventually fall?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
