No matter how bad circumstances may seem, Clark Porter has proven that nothing is impossible. Against all odds, he has turned his life around and now works for those who put him behind bars.
Only two times in his life has the federal government paid for his air fare. The first, when he was being transported as a convicted violent felon to a state prison. Decades later, he was flown to a White House Regional Meeting as the focal point of the successful Probation Program in St. Louis.
Despite supervising some of the most violent offenders, Porter has managed to bring his recidivism rate to one of the lowest in the country.
For those wondering if he will mess up in the future, his response is simply - it won't happen.
This is truly inspiring story that should be shared. http://m.npr.org/news/U.S./166884441
