Former prisoner's column in the S-E teaches us to be less judgmental

I am writing to thank the Standard-Examiner for allowing Brian Wood to continue to write his weekly column after being released from prison. As a retired educator, I always did my best to teach my students "there are two sides to every situation." I believe it is educational for “us,” the public, to learn about life in prison and the challenging adjustments inmates face when they are released back into society. Brian’s column helps us to be more understanding, compassionate and less judgmental.

I salute Brian Wood as he continues to pursue life goals and also for being so brave in sharing his experiences with complete transparency.
