What gets me out of bed in the morning is making my FAMILY whole.
In 1988, my father was arrested and 2 years later convicted with his 1st & only felony conviction of life without parole as part of a drug conspiracy. For over 31 years, my Dad has never stopped being a parent & has immersed himself in the daily life of me & my siblings through phone calls, birthday cards, holiday cards & emails. Although he made mistakes when he was younger, his atonement & resolute spirit has positively impacted not only our lives, but also the many men he has encountered in the over 3 decades of his incarceration. The data shows people age out of criminality. As a 66 yr old elder, a model prisoner with zero infractions while incarcerated, we believe our dad deserves a second chance. #FreeBillUnderwood
