    The fact that the system is designed for resitavism. This is a model program that highlights a solution. What better answers to be found than from reaching back, from the inside out. Well done, sister.

    Thank you sharing this story of redemption and the efforts of one person coming from a position of despair and great need to uplift others in similar situations. It makes me want to do what I can to help, too.

    Enjoyed the film. I liked how they connected finding their own value after prison while finding and assigning value to objects that others have thrown away.
