On The 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, Reverend David Link points to an issue that would greatly concern Dr. King today - mass incarceration. As a prison chaplain, Link has learned that most people in prison "did not fall into the cracks...they were born in the cracks." He believes that by listening to the dreams of prison professionals and volunteers, we can learn a great deal about what needs to be done to reform America's prison system.
To learn more about the amazing life story of Reverend David T. Link:
For many years Dr. David T. Link helped young men and women prepare to become lawyers. After his wife died, and at a time in his life when most people retire, Dr. Link felt called to serve the Church and to aid the men that his profession normally put behind bars, ministering healing and forgiveness to murderers, thieves, and what many would call the least of society.
His story is one about the value of human life, and about the transformative power of friendship and compassion. Meeting Father Dave gives us hope that one person can make a difference and, through successive reinterpretations of his own life's purpose, he makes the case for adding our own unique gifts to help the least of these, our brothers and sisters from all walks of life.
