  This is my favourite quotation; it was said by Victor Kiam, who was an American entrepreneur and also owned the New England Patriots at one point.

Reflection & Rehabilitation: My Prison Visit

  This week I had the incredible opportunity of being able to visit a prison and be able to pretend to be a prisoner for a day! A trip like no other – and an opportunity few general members of the public get.   The prison is set to open soon so we were there […]
