Quotable Lines:

Dismas House presentation.

Question: Why is Dismas House important to you?

“Dismas is important to me and to the community because it teaches us about hope, how to not judge people, and the power of love and acceptance. When I look at the people up on the stage, hear their struggles and see how they’ve made the choice to better their lives it inspires me to look at my life, recognize how lucky I am and inspires me to make good decisions for my future. I would like to congratulate each of them for taking the hard road to recovery and a better life.” – Alisha Joy Cratty

“Dismas is important to me because people do deserve second changes. It only seems fair that people are given somewhere to stay so they do not feel abandoned. The Dismas House helps keep people from repeating their past mistakes.” – Danielle Lieberman

“Dismas is important to me because it helps me see the power of people. The positive power of talk, action and love is almost immeasurable. The residents and staff of Dismas, together, help all of us understand the daily struggles these folks go through. I know, just from today’s experience, that I have a MUCH better understanding of recovery and ex-prisoners returning to society.” – Marcelle Tucker

War & Peace

Question: What would you personally give up for peace?

“I think peace is one of the most important things in this world. Since this is the case, there is very little I would not give up to maintain it. The things I would not give up include my identity, my freedom, or my family/friends. Anything else, including my life, is fair game.” – James Vicki

“I would give up low gas prices. If we have to pay $3 a gallon to get peace, then great. To bring troops home would be worth it to pay a little extra at the pump.” -Jon Lemieux

“I wouldn’t be willing to give up anything. Peace is supposed to be harmony between people but people have already given up their lives for peace and it clearly hasn’t worked. From this I feel that you can’t give up anything more than your life, so what’s the point, there will never be peace. If human sacrifice isn’t enough, I don’t know what is.” -Mitchell Arnold
