Now just one week to go, I was honored to make plans for my first free Christmas in many years. It is hard to believe that I will actually be home for Christmas. It is even more difficult to realize that my friends that I have gotten to know will not be home for Christmas. I have been so fortunate to be able to build an amazing support system here. My brothers in blue have been there for me through thick and thin. When you can find like minded Christ following men who have realized the damage their criminal activities have caused. Men who have made a conscious decision to deal with the issues that brought them to prison, then you have a starting point for a real relationship. Surprisingly, there are such men behind these walls.
Now, Chris's story!

As I start this, I am three weeks from release. I have had visits from the administration to sign different forms and to sign up for the different programs that I will be enrolled in upon release. For example I filled out the forms for veterans healthcare. This made going home a reality for me.
Next, I was given my conditions for probation. My probation officer has made the home visit and approved my residence. Its starting to feel a lot like Christmas!!
... we hear of charities and nonprofits and the good they do. But rarely do we know their story, or from where they came. But like all organizations big and small, their missions began with someone's desire to help: a need left unmet. An environmental hazard deserving of a hero. A population on the brink of societal abandonment.
This blog is the journaled "telling" of Eagle Mountain Recovery Communities and its founder Chris Tingirides, beginning at the moment he realized that his long long prison sentence had suddenly become very very short. Thank you for reading, and welcome.
