Description

In Healing the Heart: Healing the Hood, Olgen Williams traces his dramatic journey from embittered, drug-using Vietnam veteran to nationally acclaimed neighborhood activist. His sudden, miraculous re-orientation from drugs and despair to faith and freedom will inspire all those concerned with the social and personal costs and consequences of illegal drugs and drug-related crime. In, December 2002, for his crime of having stolen less than eleven dollars while serving as a postal worker in 1971, Olgen Williams received one of seven pardons granted by President George W. Bush. Healing the Heart is not only the story of an extraordinary life-in-progress but also a working handbook of tools and techniques for neighborhood activism and transformation.
