Introduction and Preface
In the Introduction Fr. Grey Boyle talks about his life before Homeboy Industries. He also recalled when they first started it and the people he met. He seemed excited to star this program that would really help the young men and women become better people. He talks of the success stories of those who have really come a long way. Homeboy Industries has been helping means get back on the right track.
The theme of this chapter is jurisdiction, it has showed me that our persistent judgements can go away if we make an effort to include people. We make snap decisions of people based on what other people tell us, but we need to find out on our own. My favorite story was when G took Chepe and Richie to a fancy restaurant. They liked the waitress because she made them feel like they were somebody. We need more people like this in our lives, that make us feel safe and loved.
