There are times, when I read something so profoundly moving, I’m left speechless. This is one of those times.
Whitney Smith was a criminal. Make no mistake about that. He was in prison for crimes he committed. However, there’s a fine line between paying one’s debt to society and having that debt overwhelm you.
On Saturday night, Whit took his life, no longer able to cope with the horrors of incarceration. There may be many who won’t shed a tear, or think “Don’t do the crime, if you can’t do the time.”. What these people forget, is they still have families, fathers, mothers, sisters brothers, daughters and sons. There are those who still care, even though society would have you believe they have no worth.
Whit had worth to his Father, and I urge you all to take a moment and read the post his Father wrote.
