Back in 1994, I lost complete control of myself and my actions. Trapped in a self-induced drunken rage, I shot four young men and terrified countless bystanders (Chapter 1). The pain I caused does not stop there. My actions also wounded the friends & family of those I hurt directly, and my own friends & family as well.
I take full responsibility for my actions. I blame no one but myself. I realize the magnitude of what I’ve done. I realize what I did was horrific, and to many…unforgivable.
With all my heart & soul, I am very sorry for all the pain that I’ve ever caused anyone. “I am so so so sorry.”
I know that saying sorry isn’t enough. There is nothing I can ever do to change the past, or to make things right. All I can do is serve humanity with kindness, love, and respect. With the spirit of a sorry heart, it is my desire to serve and to give back to all the lives that I have wrongfully affected.
As I write and sell books I will make money (Stone City: Life In The Penitentiary). A portion of all profits will go to the people who I’ve hurt. I’m not trying to buy forgiveness. I’m just trying to give back any way that I can. In addition to compensating the ones I’ve hurt, I will also make donations to the following charities:
* The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV)
* Families & Friends of Violent Crime Victims (Victim Support Services)
It is my true & sincere desire to live the rest of my life in peace, love, and harmony.
If you are due any compensation, please contact me and we’ll work it out.
