Harley continues to give hope and inspiration!
“I’m a therapist that works with inmates in the jail and then helps to re-integrate them into the community once released. By the time they get to me, they are hopeless. They can’t find a job because of their criminal record. They have no money. They are typically living on the streets. They have no family left, as they’ve burned those bridges, and their friends are all drug users. The first thing they see when they walk into my office is Harley (calendar), and every time, they never fail to ask about him. They ask why he’s missing an eye. I tell them about where he came from and what he has done to better the lives of so many, both mill dogs and humans alike. Harley gives them hope that they can rebuild their lives. He reassures them that their past does not define them, and that they can overcome any obstacle if they choose to. Harley is, in every sense of the word, their hero. And he is mine.” -Stephanie
