Hey T-Bone, I'm really glad to hear you've been let out, you deserve it so much after everything you've been through and everything you have done in the Service of Others. What are you going to do now that you've been let out? Have fun and enjoy yourself out there, you really deserve it!

Glad that you are no longer incarcerated T-Bone! Is there a mailing address/e-mail/website where we can keep up a correspondence with you? Shaun is a shining example of a person who was incarcerated for a lengthy period of time, but still has been able to successfully reintegrate into society. Here's to hoping that you will be another person who is able to accomplish that. (Don't worry, I know that you will.) I intend to follow the story of what your future holds T-Bone, and I firmly believe that it will be a positive and uplifting story. Again, it would be great if an address were to be listed for those of us who would like to attempt to write to you. Congratulations, again, on regaining your freedom. Here's to your future...

Some years ago, I came across jonsjailjournal, and I exchanged views with Shaun, who has used his experiences in Arizona to not only improve himself, but to inspire others too.

Just as Shaun has forged ahead since his release, publishing his book, and lecturing to schools, I very much hope that you, too, T-Bone, will create something of value out of your long years.

Remember, it is not what happens to you, but how you respond to it, that defines who you are. So, whenever you feel under pressure in any way, "Breathe deep, relax, be inspired, be true!" before you respond.

Stay out of jail!

Good luck! Zen

Jon, I hope T-Bone stays straight but I think you ought to let your readers know, it's not all clean cut and T-Bone is not a hero in a movie, although I hope his story has a happy ending like the movies.

I wish him all the best because it is not going to be easy for him in the free world, especially in a country like America.

For those of you looking forward to seeing him here in the UK, it's unlikely to happen.

Sure, he may at some point be able to visit without a visa (90 days max), but with his record and the amount of time he did in prison, he wouldn't be granted a visa....it's not even easy for those without a felony to get a stay in this country.

Even without parole to worry about, T-Bone has tons stacked against him.

The colour of his skin
His status as an ex-felon
The environment he's returning to
Lack of education...it all counts.

In prison, every inmate wants to reform. Some of them find religion and swear it's the last time, only to return, some times within months, even days.

The hardest part is being able to stay away from drugs and for those without the type of family structure Shaun has, it's not easy.

Sending good vibes to T-Bone. Stay strong brother.
