night’s performance and talk by ArtSpring was
amazing. We were moved to both laughter and tears.
Any stereotypes or misconceptions about women in prison
were turned upside down and thrown out by the end of
the evening. If ever anyone needed proof that the arts
have the ability to effect change, your program is
that proof. It is also proof that the creative spirit
lives in each of us. No matter how submerged, that
spirit comes to surface with any encouragement….”

are angels in the true sense,
Because with their determination, commitment, trust and admiration,
They have helped rehabilitate, form, and make us who we are …today.
They have blessed us with the true gift of freedom.
They have believed, when every one else gave up.
And for that we are forever grateful.
Mere words will never express our gratitude,
But you will see it on the faces that once never smiled,
In the voices that before were never heard,
And in the actions that once bespoke of hate, but now embrace
They have given a gift more precious then gold,
They have given us life, showed us it’s okay to dream,
and have dreamed with us.
we continue to dream….”
