First, let me say I do appreciate you stopping by to read this. Know your time and interest is valued.
My name is Ronnie Shelton, 59 years old, born and raised in San Jose, California. I’ve been through a lot and made many mistakes, as well as poor choices. I have no excuses, I take full responsibility. I now have the insight through many self-help recovery program groups. This process through the curriculum of changing my life was the best decision I ever made.
At one time back in the past, I was involved with a violent and dangerous prison/street organization and it led me to destruction and my incarceration which is now going on 30 years. I go to the parole board in August 2021.
Today, I have learned empathy and compassion and how to live like a normal human being. I need 2 more classes with Coastline College to graduate on the honors list and receive three Associate of Arts Degrees: American Studies, Social/Behavior Studies, and a Major in Liberal Arts and Humanities. I then will start my Bachelor’s Degree with Adams State University in Colorado via correspondence. I just want to be a better person and be of service to the community, and continue the healing and peace of mind that I have obtained so I can continue living amends as well as for all those I have done wrong throughout my life.
I had a poetry book published in 2005; at the moment, I’m working on other poetry / philosophy related material to be published soon.
All are welcome to contact me. I just want to be able to help other people in any manner I can and to hopefully build friendships.
God bless you. You are in my prayers.
