Despite their crimes, mental health issues and deep-seated unworthiness, each ‘inside’ woman yearns for a sense of dignity and respect (as we all do, right?!).

Here’s a commentary entitled “One Dignified Moment” that aired on Vermont Public Radio yesterday on New Years Day.  (Click the link, then “Listen”)

It captures the deep yearning of one 20-something incarcerated woman for a  fresh reality in her life.

Enjoy … and keep on reading and listening!
