Get busy living or get busy dying.
I find I am so excited I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head.
I think it’s the excitement only a free man can feel.
A freeman at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain.
I hope I can make it across that promised border.
I hope to see my friends and shake their hands.
I hope independence is as fine as it has been in my dreams.
I hope …..
