SOCIAL JUSTICE

I am an activist of the most genuine kind. Social Justice is a topic that deserves the greatest level of respect and care that an individual can muster. Too often we let emotions drive our disputes about the cause of any particular issue. Unfortunately, conversations begin from this emotional standpoint and the issues fall out of the spotlight when emotions subside. In my humble opinion each side has its issues that can be improved upon to make the solution attainable. I’m developing a workbook and companion Instructor’s Guide to address an issue at the core of the problem from the individuals’ standpoint. Mental Focus is a motivational course designed for prisoners re-entering the community. My vision is for it to be the premier prison rehab program in the nation. Mental Focus champions the individual’s potential for evolution through a path of self-discovery. Mental Focus practice involves a method of controlling thoughts and emotions and aligning it with motivation to produce positive actions. By simply eliminating harmful behaviors, the chances of leading a healthy lifestyle are greatly enhanced. I lead by example and am close to finishing the first version of Mental Focus. I need help. I need advocates and I need access to resources to complete a professional quality curriculum. Referrals to literary agents, book contents, and people who can help implement this course into places where it can be effective is my current mission. For every man and woman sent home healthy from rehab centers; that’s a Father, Mother, Daughter, So, neighbor, and co-worker helped. Change in our society starts in the household, not in fighting the government. Contact me for details.

HAPPINESS

Happiness~~ We live our lives in the hopes that just one more thing will complete our happiness. The ego’s conditioned thought is that something is missing and so we look for the missing piece to bring us salvation. And yet, no matter how many things we purchase, gather, and collect, we still feel as if something’s missing. Indeed, there is the unconditional awareness that nothing is missing. We are, in truth, complete and whole already. “Nothing can make you happy if you won’t accept for yourself that happiness rests within you.”

ENCOURAGEMENT

Hello World, well first of, all I hope everyone can bear with me on this because I wasn’t a social media person out there and I don’t have a clue as to how to begin a blog, but I’m willing to try; sorry (smile). Just thought I can share some of my thoughts with you all. You know, there comes a time when a person’s back is against the wall and they can’t seem to find a way out, or they feel as if the world is coming down on them. Now I’m not trying to preach, but I’m just here to encourage people that feel that way or similar. I’ve felt this way at a point of time when everything was basically taken from me. Life is full of ups and downs but it’s what you make out of every situation that counts. You live and learn through experiences and the decisions you make in life. People may judge or think what they want to think but you have to be strong mentally, physically, and emotionally within yourself so you move forward and come out strong. You never know how strong you can be until being strong is the only choice you have. Stand tall against the rain. I’m just glad that tis rodeo is almost past me because through all the “blood, sweat, and tears”, I’m finally able to say that “I’m ready”.

Inmate Blog Category:More About Me


Loyalty. Respect. Family. Those words have so much meaning believe it or not most people don’t truly understand what they mean. Most often they misuse them more ways than one. To me I don’t ever take them lightly or handle them with a no care attitude. I’ve been in relationships and friendships where I truly gave myself out there 100 percent because that’s me, an all-in it type of guy (that’s how I was raised) just to be lead on then crushed. If you ever experienced that, you know like I do, that it sucks to devote yourself and your time to a cause or to someone who could careless or doesn’t value your worth. It leaves you feeling like all you have in this world is you. That’s how I used to feel for a while until God reminded me I’m not alone. That’s the crazy thing, you will find yourself swearing nobody cares- man how did this happen. While we're forgetting that the one who truly cares has always been there and maybe he wanted us to go through some situations to show us better things. I believe that so much because my childhood was rough; I look back and it’s a blessing I’m alive and so positive. Going through life we didn’t have much. It made me appreciate what I did have. It gave me a hunger to want better for my future and my future family. That’s why I don’t play when it comes to my education. By far it’s the best tool you can have for yourself. "Knowledge", it’s the one thing nobody can take away from you. You can’t achieve anything in life if you’re stuck at level one. I’m currently enrolled in school but that’s just the start. I’ve been writing a book which I’m about to get it published and currently laying out my blue prints of my new business adventure out. Like I said earlier, don’t ever let your past or anything someone said define you; it’s your life, make it worth your while. Take advantage of your full potential ... I’m more than your average man. I’m greatness in the making… This is just a glimpse at one angle. I never look down only up. It’s been good to talk well feel free to write. Yours truly, Devonte

SUCCESS

What is success? ~~ In our society success is often equated with glamor, fame, and riches! Sometimes it’s thought of as a single achievement, like winning an election, getting some type of recognition or getting a good job! Few people really understand what success is and even fewer recognize that success is a work in progress, rather than an event! The journey you endure through life, “The process”, is what makes you who you are understanding all the things you go through are opportunities to learn from and grow! Using all negative situations and turning them into something positive is the key, because once you understand this, there is nothing life can do to stop you! Every day, strive to become a better person; emotionally, intellectually, and physically! Never sell yourself short, always push yourself to be the best that you can be! Once you understand this new way of thinking, you’re a success!! Believe in yourself and dream big, as impossible in nothing to those who believe! Every journey to success starts with the first step. Do not pray for an easy life, pray for strength to endure a difficult journey!

AWARENESS

Hello friends, I cut my hair and donated it to a children cancer charity organization. I believe being charitable is a good thing and also standing up to cancer is also a good thing. I encourage people to help raise awareness for cancer and to be charitable.

Finally I can move forward in pursuit of my vision. My first book, “Cartier’s Rose: Each Petal Tells a Different Story”, is finally published. If you like poetry or know someone who does, tell them to check it out at amazon.com. I promise you will leave with a different outlook on life; building better and lasting relationships with yourself and others. The poems that are enclosed in this book range from love, romance and friendship, to what it’s like to pursue dreams while experiencing loneliness. Inspire me and I’ll inspire you, together we’ll inspire happiness! Is my motto. Looking forward to your support. Faithfully, Cartier Rose

Inmate Blog Category:More About Me


What does one say to the world if given the chance to be heard after twenty plus years? I would say it’s great to meet you and the pleasure is all mine! I’m a man that is humbled by life, but in the process was given the strength to live it. My hunger is for freedom, and let nothing get in the way of that! With that being said, I’m looking to meet new and interesting people. I’m hoping to develop and experience meaningful friendship. The important things, such as sincerely, strength and laughter. I hope to one day be that blessing to others that they might be to me. (Loyalty and trust are key to me.) Unfortunately, this profile denies the world from experiencing and witnessing my sparking personality and charisma firsthand (smile). However I am up to the challenge of arousing your curiosity through words. Thanks for your time…

WHAT DUDES BE ON

What dudes be on I wonder what the gallery will be like today. Will the brothers snap on each other down the way, or maybe somebody will get upset at someone talking politics, but instigate conflict between guys over crap. It's funny how quiet guys are when they serve a bad meal, but make an attempt to stand on each other like they're real, they won't file a grievance or pursue a lawsuit, but will beat each other down and give each other the boot. These prisons have become a sanctuary, a safe haven for weak men, that pull female traits and be image chasers behind steel doors. Dudes that get down like this are embraced like they're in, so they continue to hide among real brothers and men. I don't know if I am the only one that sees what dudes be on, because sometimes I feel as though I am living in a twilight zone, where chuckhole gangsters are treated like real heroes, and stand up dudes like they're nothing but zeroes. What really makes this so unreal and a warped fantasy is that guys will hate you if you explain how situations are supposed to be. This is really sad because things have gone wrong, but what can I say other than that's what dudes be on. True statement. PS: If you're looking for someone who's perfect, then I'm not someone who you would like to know, because my life is far from being perfect. If you're looking for someone who's willing to tell you sweet lies, just for the sake of communication, then I am not the person who you would want in your life, because not only do I know how to communicate with people and get my message across, but my life is far from falsehood. It's no fake advertisement with me. We as a people know that authentic people are a minority nowadays, and if you're looking for someone who's authentic, then reach out to me and lets take it from there.

GODLINESS

Cleanliness is next to Godliness. I know ya'll heard that saying before but do you quite understand what it means. Cleanliness has to start within yourself first. It’s a sign of spiritual purity to vow to stay clean for God. It’s a life change. Clean means to stay away from anything evil negativity, curse words, bad self-image, greed, speaking of evil and many others. When you are saying this phrase you implying that God is in you and you’re vowing to remain free from negative things because godliness doesn’t play with those things. Godliness is sweet, kind, loving, sharing, nurturing, giving and compassionate. You must change you for the better to experience all that god has to offer. It’s being a lady and portraying it. Its having your outer beauty match the inside beauty. Its representation that you’re different, you’re whole, clean, and nothing can touch you or tell you otherwise. Remember only good things come from God. Please feel free to write ladies Yours truly, Devonte
