A comprehensive re-integration process that includes writing, poetry, music and drama may reduce recidivism and produce productive citizens. Creative thinking through such artistic activities can assist anyone beyond prison walls to survive the hustle and bustle of everyday life challenges. As part of these diverse disciplines of the arts, a person can learn to write a rsum by using creative writing skills, be a leader in their community, conduct a business meeting and, yes, even become famous like actor Charles Dutton from the 1990s' sitcom Roc, who was in prison. An individual can learn how to use creativity to keep them from returning to prison. I am a part of what The Arts can offer HOPE CHANGE SECOND CHANCES.
