i really learned how a person can be so effected by drugs and gang violence but at the same time, their life can turn around completely when something tragic happens to their family like in the case of Raymond Johnson.
today i learned the story of Ray Johnson. I really enjoyed listening to the way he grew up and how the decisions he made lead to his life in jail. I was so upset to hear about how his children died and how it changed his life. I learned how a person can become so effected by drugs and violence and how it can ruin your life, and how one moment can turn your life upside down.

Today we went to the Suffock County Jail. At first it was a little intense but everyone got used to it and ended up learning a lot. We talked to an inmate who told his story, and a lot of people began to feel sorry for the inmates instead of being scared of them. We met a judge as well. -Dot

The visit to the Suffolk County Jail today made a big impression on the group. It was both surprising and eye opening. The story we heard from the inmate, Raymond Johnson, showed us a positive turn around that can result from tragedy. The visit to the court taught us more about the logistics of the judicial system and was very informative. - Dara
the story that raymond johnson was very eye opening. i felt bad for him that he was in jail for so long but also, i feel like he learned alot from being there. he said that when he gets out, he is going to try to shape up his life and get back on the good side of his children so that he can have a good relationship with them again. - alana
