Second chances. If I didn't have a second chance to make a first impression, I wouldn't have the beautiful wife that I have today. Having that second chance changed my life in ways that I could have never imagined. Had I not been afforded that opportunity, who knows where my life would be right now. Sometimes people just need a second chance to be able to find the path they were meant to be on.
For over 50 years, St. Leonard's House of Chicago has been providing residential and support services for previously incarcerated men. St. Leonard's House has given these men the opportunity and means to rehabilitate and change the way they used to live their lives. There are many different reasons why these men ended up at St. Leonard's House, but all of them are working towards the same goals: "to rebuild their lives and reshape their futures." Today's random act of kindness will be to join my friend Alex in leading a discussion with these men that will hopefully help them with their second chance in some way.
