Colette writes Truth Be Told from beyond bars

I have participated in every program offered by Truth be Told, including the Let’s Get Real program, which helped me take a look at myself and my flaws, character defects, and shortcomings. What I have learned is to take all the information and suggestions and apply them to my daily life. I am still a work in progress; however, I know that I would not be where I am had it not been for the Truth Be Told program.

Making art at Gatesville: Peg Runnels teaches Exploring Creativity

Their eyes showed confusion as they glanced at each other. What is she doing, they seemed to say. Then as my vulnerability dance began to change into acceptance, I saw their faces soften and grow warm. We had connection.
