freeman offered a new comment on an old post tonight.
I'm also a convicted felon. That conviction was over 20 years ago. I'm tired of complaining about who want hire me. I survived 15 years in prison because I refused to lay down and die. I paroled a life sentence becasue I believed in the impossible while all those around me wrote me off for dead. I am here. I am free. And I will not settle for less than all I believe...
for some reason, the lines "i am here, i am free" reminded me of an old poem.
