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?
