Episode 3: Human Duty

December 8, 2015



As a kid, Tom felt like a broken toy cast aside, so he set out to conquer the world in a bad way. He’s ashamed about his criminal past, but overcame that in a unique way. When someone abandoned and alone with his or her pain cries out for help, it’s our human duty to respond. Discover how Tzu Chi USA’s letter exchange program with inmates was the catalyst that led the way to Jing Si Aphorism classes in prison.
