Mary Fisher's Heroes
"We came from prison,
from drugs, from alcohol, from the streets. And we've become employable
people. Willie Byrd, he's working. Kenny, a man who started his own business.
Yvonne, once didn't have anything - couldn't have gotten out of DC - just
came back from Albuquerque. Fred, a guy who came from San Quentin who found
his way home by blind faith. There's a sister showing compassion and mercy
for her sister, so she got involved.... We will not quit until we have
stopped the spread of this virus in our community and in the prison setting.
We are the underprivileged, the voice that's never been heard at the table
where policies are being made..."
"So long as we wake up - whether we've got sores and lesions on us, or we're losing weight, or whatever's happening - we hear the call, and the duty is to live. When we respond to that call and take on that duty, there's a power higher than us that's going to give us the energy and strength to succeed."
