This change is absolutely priceless!

I read this story and it made me very proud of this guy.

Imagine the earnings he took in in one week ?
Imagine the expensive toys, cars, boats, and jewels he once had at his disposal?
Imagine the control and power he used to have on the streets?
Imagine the people working for him; his business; his lifestyle.
All the above was from dealing and selling illegal drugs that people got hooked on and most likely to some degree ruined their lives.

Imagine being imprisoned 20 years.
Then imagine coming out a changed person.

I'm proud Tommy chose not to go back to his old lifestyle.

He chose a better one.

He chose to help people.
Really help people. People often overlooked in society.

I'm proud for Tommy and hope he continues to inspire others to change their choices and be of
service to others in a 'good' way.

Here's a link to view another article and video of Tommy in action.

When you serve others, I truly believe it's of the Lord.

There's a lot more to life than material things. Instead, focus on people. Being of service is where
you will discover true happiness.
So reach out, find what a person needs and help them.

I can promise you that you will be happy when you see people appreciating your service.
There's another name for this- it's called love.
And when you give it, it comes back to the giver in a way that touches the heart unlike any amount of money ever can. Priceless.

I salute you Tommy Mickens.

And please, someone ought to find what led this former convict to want to be a help to society.
This needs to be available so all prisoners can personally know there are choices that they can make to keep them out of the legal system, earn them a living and be of help to others.
