To add to my post yesterday, another thing about the jail that I find so sad is the age of many of the inmates. Some are as young as 17! Quite a few are 18, 19, 20, 21, ect. Some of those that are in at that young age have already been in jail several times. It breaks my heart. That is one of the major reasons why I want to teach, I want to help teenagers stay out of trouble. I don't want to see their lives ruined by Satan. Many of these inmates have so much potential, but because they fell in with the wrong crowd have now completely wrecked their lives. It's so sad. God can still use them, but not in the way that they were once usable.
