“People don’t understand, Ryan Ford has a story to tell. From negative to positive. Now I go to schools and talk to kids who are going through hard times and see the fast life as an option. And if I can talk one kid out of a hundred not to go that way, that’s good enough for me. They know I’ve been there, I went down the wrong road and I’ve done my time. So I speak from experience and the kids listen to that. I learned from my mistakes and what I went through made me the man I am today. My journey is on a positive path now. I had to learn things the hard way. But if you learn, then the past is gone and you’re moving on to something better.” From “This Is Where I Need To Be” by Michael Carbert
