In my December 23, 2019 post titled “I’m D.E., A Sex Offender,” I posted the first part of D.E.’s guest writing about his sex addiction. Today I am posting the second part of his essay, and you can read it here. It is very difficult for him to bare himself to the world, and he writes whenever he has the courage to do so. I commend him for confronting his problems. We all have our own, don’t we? Offering you his essay is part of his rehabilitation. I’ll post the next part of his essay in next week’s Video Fridays In 60 Seconds, along with that of a new guest writer!
Before I go, a number of the guys that I’ve asked to write guest essays have said to me that they want to, but don’t believe anyone cares about them or what they’d have to say. Sadly, this is a common perception amongst inmates. It’s born from the cold, impersonal experience of incarceration.
Part of addressing incarceration is to encourage public discourse and understanding. Each post and each guest essay is a snapshot into the reality and challenge of incarceration. Please share these writings with others.
