What if we were to throw a party for people who are being released from Prison. We gather AS MANY PEOPLE we can to show up and we have appetizers we make a big deal about the person being released? We show them that they are loved, and we are standing in their corner and fighting with them. Let’s give them hope and joy the week they are released.
