Serving Life

By , July 26, 2011 10:02 PM

Today’s post is going to be a tiny bit different than most of my others.  What’s different today is that I’m going to write about something I haven’t actually seen or experienced yet.

I’m very excited about a television documentary, Serving Life, that is slated to air on Thursday, July 28, on Oprah’s OWN network.  In fact, even the advertisement for this program is phenomenal.  And incredibly moving.

Forest Whitaker narrated and executive produced this documentary which takes peek into a Louisiana prison.  The inmates in Angola Prison are hardened criminals—over 70% of whom are serving life sentences.  They will most likely die within those prison walls.

And yet, there are a group of prisoners who provide hospice care to their dying fellow inmates.  Care and compassion have blossomed in the most unlikely of places.

I suspect that we’ll all be touched and inspired by the light that continues to shine persistently and brightly, even in the hearts of the inmates at the Louisiana State Penitentiary.

    And yet there’s been no more light shining brightly from your blog, even now, 3 months later, sigh… I hope this extended absence means you’re off on an exciting adventure, T. Let us know when you’re back!
