Today’s podcast is truly an inspiration for everyone.
Vincent discusses that routine and interaction tie us to community. We challenge ourselves when we give back to the community. Failures are successes that need to be embraced. Vincent speaks to circumstances he endured throughout his three decades of life: Hemophilia, surgeries, sexual abuse within his family, addictions to crack, gangs, robberies, three federal prison sentences, multiple addiction treatment admissions and through it all Vincent sought hope and forgiveness. A sentencing judge saw hope in Vincent and deferred a 7 year and fourth prison sentence to enable the change he wanted to make in himself.
Based on his riveting book: ALL EYES ON ME; a true story of Addiction, Recovery and Hope.
