Entering a prison can and will be a culture shock, prison changes you overtime either positive or negatively. If I were to be entering prison for the first time I would have a couple concerns regarding my well-being and safety.

A famous writer once said, “Waiting for death, is life.” People live each day as they are here for forever but, they forget that this is just a part of their journey and the final destination is “Death”. Over the years, people grow and learn from other people, they go through a process of self-development and changes that makes them in to a person; they want to be. But sometimes taking control of things is hard. It makes them overcome a lot of hardships yet some lack the ability to interpret from right and wrong.

This means asking all patients about abuse and violence in their lives. Whether or not a person chooses to use services or leave her or his partner, a provider’s intervention is very important. People often return to violent partners many times before they feel safe enough to leave, feel that they can survive on their own, or can accept that the person they love will not change (Morrison & Furlong, 2014). When physicians fail to ask about abuse, they inadvertently isolate people who are living in danger.

One of the layers to this program that I can appreciate is how it help an inmate get their mind right and almost teach them in gradual steps on how to hold themselves accountable when they actually get released into the community. I appreciate this so much because I have a family member that were, and still is in prison, and when they were released they tend to not accept the new times which cripple them. Once they can 't accept certain things in their new life they start doing the thing that got them in prison the first time. It almost a never ending cycle. I believe if they had a program such as the "Insight Prison Project" they can ultimately get prepped and maybe take a better path.

After reading Unbroken, I felt that if Zamperini could survive years of torture, I could survive a seemingly small family emergency. The ability to relate Zamperini’s own story of resilience in a horrible situation inspired me to do the same in my own
