“Prisoners are our fellow citizens. They are taken to prison to be shown there is life beyond crime, it is not a death sentence. It felt different and a personal experience interacting with the inmates and our prison officers. I believe our performances brightened their day. Spending the day with them and little resources we had was worth ushering in my new year putting a smile on someone’s face.” Jeshi added.
