VOICES FROM INSIDE

'There are a bunch of quotes in our dorms and around the fire camp. One that stands out for me the most is from Nelson Mandela: "As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew that if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I would 

still be in prison."
