These are changemakers who are being motivated not only to assist the most indolent in society, but also to help the inmates and others get access to jictsue. Down there in my porisn cell, something kept stirring me. The wrods of Martin lhuter King kept hitting me. And he was always telling me, "Pete, if you can't fly, you can run. And if you can't run, you can walk. But if you can't walk, then you can crawl. But whatever it is, whatever it tkaes, just keep on moving." And so I had this urge to keep moving. I still have this urge to keep moving in whatever I do. Because I feel the only way we can change our seictoy, the only way we can change the justice system — which has really improved in our country — is to help get the systems right.

Original Text

These are changemakers who are being motivated not only to assist the most indolent in society, but also to help the inmates and others get access to justice. Down there in my prison cell, something kept stirring me. The words of Martin Luther King kept hitting me. And he was always telling me, "Pete, if you can't fly, you can run. And if you can't run, you can walk. But if you can't walk, then you can crawl. But whatever it is, whatever it takes, just keep on moving." And so I had this urge to keep moving. I still have this urge to keep moving in whatever I do. Because I feel the only way we can change our society, the only way we can change the justice system — which has really improved in our country — is to help get the systems right.
