Male inmates know the song.

Mnemosyne coverThey’ve sang the song before, a haunting melody at best. Male inmates have often been victims of childhood sexual and physical abuse, which most likely was a contributing factor to their incarceration. I will be meeting with seventy inmates at the Shawnee Correctional Center on Friday, November 1, 2013 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. I intent to share my experiences of childhood sexual abuse, and explain how I have moved the horrific memories to mere recollections. (Well, most of the time.) I am hopeful that we can share a peaceful space in time with nothing but good vibrations filling an institution of pain. It is my hope, and perhaps my prayer. Wish me luck.
