Bitter and Sweet

While in search of a meaningful career, I have had many jobs that have left everlasting memories in my mind. I spent about two years transporting physically and mentally challenged children back and forth to school. None of these children could walk or talk, and some were blind. I have worked as a construction site laborer: mixing mud, shoveling rocks, and carrying bricks in 90 degree plus temperatures. As a police officer, I risked my life day in and day out; getting shot at, chasing stolen cars, and trying to apprehend suspected drug dealers. I was then employed as an Extradition Agent. This position would turn out to be the most life changing of them all. An Extradition Agent transports prisoners throughout the United States. This position would give me exposure to different people, places, and first hand knowledge of how the United States justice system operates.

I can recall my first trip, a three-week west coast tour. I remember departing Nashville, TN in the early hours of the morning, wondering what was in store. I would spend the next 24 days with my partner Tony, a 35-year-old Caucasian
