I was reading a story of a prisoner who was just released from prison after spending 14 years serving time for a crime he was exonerated from. I can't imagine being imprisoned for a crime I did not commit and losing 14 years of my life.
I am working every day to pay for the mistakes of my youth. I look back and think, boy, just a little direction could have prevented a lifetime of debt. The good news is, that my kids will not be making that mistake. They are having this lesson drilled into them every day.
