Where do I begin with this letter? I
remember when I first was arrested, I
wanted to find something positive to
invest in and immediately turned toward
education. I studied for about a month
and then I went and took my GED tests.
THE LITTLEST THINGS CAN CHANGE
Won’t you please support learning for our
young men and women?
Even though I was subsequently sentenced to 40 years, I still was
happy that I found a positive avenue that I could invest my time into
and hopefully become a better person.

LOST FOR LIFE, a powerful documentary
about juveniles who committed heinous
crimes and are serving life sentences, asks
the question Could You Forgive? LOST
FOR LIFE has Colorado connections with
two prisoners, Josiah Ivy and Jacob Ind, a
victim, family members, and Sean Taylor,
who received a life sentence as a juvenile and had his sentence commuted
by Governor Bill Ritter.
We at the Pendulum Foundation believe that the only real prison is
the prison of the heart. Our goal is to physically, emotionally and
spiritually free all of our young men and women whose childhoods
have been lost, and who have been thrown away in Colorado’s
