Photo by my son…

I just wanted to give the credit for the BEAUTIFUL photo at the top of this blog to my son Jeremy.  He has taken many great photos and I am grateful that he is allowing me to use this one.

Great job, Jeremy!

  1. This is a difficult question, and one that I struggle with. Part of my job is to hire Safe People to provide a safe environment for some of the most vulnerable in our community. One of the things that I have to do is look at people’s backgrounds, and make a determination. I want to believe the good exist in people but I also owe it to the people I’m serving to make sure nothing happens to them. This makes me air on the side of caution which sometimes doesn’t allow me the privilege of giving someone a second chance.

    1. Totally understandable. Trust has to be earned in low risk situations first and then gradually built up by time. You don’t have that opportunity with your clients’ safety being an extremely high risk test with no room for error. This post isn’t written for your situation. Felons can have a hard time getting ANY job. And some get no help from the government even if they can’t find a job. The punishment doesn’t stop with the end of the sentence. Everybody needs to eat, I just don’t see why so many don’t walk a mile in their shoes.
