As we prepare to embark on our first spring break of our undergraduate experience, I’d like to share a video with you all that has inspired me to grind out the rest of my midterms and continue to fulfill my personal goals.
As shown in the video, these athletes grow up believing that there are no limits to their abilities and strive to achieve excellence, even though the narrator may advise against it. It is a very emotional experience to see an individual attempt to do something that no one thinks they can do and actually achieve it.
With the right mindset, the values portrayed in this video can be applied to almost any situation. Regarding those that are incarcerated, prison should not have to be the end of their journey. Inmates should not believe that their potential has been completely strained or limited solely due to the fact that they have been imprisoned.
There are still ways to better oneself and achieve personal goals while in prison and if inmates are given the opportunity, they should attempt to rebuild their life after they are released. A sentence does not define a man.
Until next time,
