Fixing bikes for kids? What did they ever do for their own children when they were in the free?

Huh? So would you rather they NOT fix bikes for kids just so it will more comfortably fit with your stereotypes? Geez!

I loved the story and sent it to a friend. No reason something like this couldn't be done on EVERY unit, and not just at Christmas.

Love Love Love this story. Not only does it help kids that need it, it helps the inmates think outside of themselves.

Maybe this will encourage some to someday invest in their own children.

Great story. If given the opportunity the state's offenders could do more things like this year around. Some of them have been blessed with amazing talents beyond your imagination. I have seen talent first hand because I work inside. Hope we can continue with programs such as these to inspire them to make better choices because most will be released in a neighborhood near you.
