I AM AN INMATE IN MY MARRIAGE, FAMILY AND JOB


WHO AM I?
     I am a volunteer at a maximum security prison in Jackson, Michigan. For ten years I have been teaching a weekly course designed to give my students greater inner freedom through self-control. After I put my belongings in a locker, I’m wanded, go through the metal detector, and I’m issued a “panic” alarm for my belt. Then the 1-inch thick iron gate rolls shut behind me and I am within an atmosphere of power and a technology of control. I have assigned away my freedom while I am inside. I am under the control of the system. I must do as they direct. This is not anonymous power. Once while attempting to gain entry to a class in a prison in Pennsylvania, due to a mistaken identity, I was strip searched. One must be able to practice what you teach.

SORRY, INCOMPLETE
