    Cardinal Dolan-I “stuck”with you all the way through and wished I could have been so eloquent at our high school graduations at Notre Dame,Fairfield. I am positive each prisoner will look back at what was and now realize what can be.I can only wish them “God speed”.

    Your address to the students was beautiful this past Saturday. What an honor to have you at the Commencement and to meet you in person. You are truly a spectacular,
    Holy man and you make me even more proud to be a Catholic. May God Bless YOU,
    Your Eminence.

    First, I would like to give you thanks for having the courage and commitment, Cardinal Dolan, for providing the blessings of your presences and words of encouragement during the graduation ceremony at Eastern Corr. Fac. It is good to see that the spirit of others continue to exist and continues to provide the gift of education. People need to understand an important fact about education in the prison system: Those individuals who come home when a college degree do a great deal better than those who don’t have a degree. I know, I am one of those who marched down the isles of Eastern, and Wallkill Corr. Fac. with both an AA and a BA degree. I also was able to then enter and graduate with a MSW degree social work from Adelphi University. Society, unfortunately, doesn’t see the positive side of Men and Women, who are able to earn a degree, and come home never to see another prison cell. Sadly, this isn’t worthy news or doesn’t carry the sensationalism that would warrant any attention. If anything can help to reduce crime and improve the lives of others, education is always a vehicle to achieve everyone’s aspirations. If it were not for education, I would probable still be suffering or serving time in prison. Thank you for what you are doing, and may you continue blessing all in need.
    I Remain,
    Andre

    Father,
    I wish I could have heard you in person but I am thankful that I was able to read your text. We are a family of educators who are trying to help incarcerated students through our software. Thank you for encouragement and support.
