Blog by Kids in the Justice System

I got an email from an art teacher in Pennsylvania who is working with young men in a correctional facility near Harrisburg. She gave them a writing assignment, and then posted their work on her blog. The assignment was "If you were to die tomorrow, what would you want your friends and family to remember the most about you?" The answers are sometimes quite touching, and remind me that there but for fortune go I. Any of us could find ourselves in circumstances beyond our control or imagining that lead us down paths we never meant to take. The teacher is soliciting comments to take back to her students, so please take a look.
