Prisoners save lives

Leave a comment

“If you judge people you have no time to love them”. Mother Teresa.
Three brothers fell into a raging creek last week with a current so powerful they couldn’t get out.
Three inmates from a prison work crew assigned to the area jumped in without hesitation to rescue them.

The rescuers and the boys were taken to hospital where they were treated for hypothermia, with the children thanking the men over and over again as they shivered, frightened and scared.

One of the inmates has said., “You see three helpless kids in a river, you help. That’s what you do. Just cause we’re incarcerated, doesn’t mean we’re bad people. We made some bad choices in our lives, but we’re still, we’re just like everybody else. We’re just paying our debt for what we did wrong.”

We all make mistakes in our live’s; we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t and I’m a great believer that you shouldn’t judge people by their past as they don’t live there anymore. Without the actions of these three men those children may not be alive today to tell their tale.
