This past week I embarked on a journey with the Kate White Band documenting their east Oregon prison tour. With three prisons on the itinerary and a fourth added while on the road, I got a lot of great footage of the band playing to prisoners. For the latter prison dates, I was not allowed to film, so I resorted to being the band’s roadie and got to chat with the tech guys working in the chapel.
All in all, it was a great experience, complete with driving back to Vancouver for the Innovators of Vancouver video release followed by a drive back to Idaho for the remainder of the tour.
I have never been in a prison before, but I can honestly say that I felt more welcome in every prison we went to than most “free” places that I go to on a weekly basis.
With that, I have a lot of work to catch up on, but I also have some examination to attend to: How will I include others in my life today?
