ABC News: From Life in Prison to Living in Luxury
Quote:
DeWayne McKinney got out of prison without money, clothes or a home, but today he is a millionaire businessman. How did he do it? Forgiveness might not be the first quality that comes to mind, but McKinney says it was a key ingredient.
Nice story.

African American guy spent two decades behind bars for a murder he didn't commit, started a business as soon as he got out, and became a successful businessman.

From a tiny cell to a 10,000-square-foot waterfront home in Hawaii.

What a great story. Someone who has to endure what he did and get out of prison and forgive the prosecutor, jury, and the gang members. We could learn a lot from him.
