Teaching at the county jail is rarely boring. You never know when and what to expect. Today it was my turn to have a random luggage search (my classroom supplies are in a hard plastic/metal box with wheels and a handle). The corrections officer had me step to a certain spot, opened my case and with a flashlight proceeded to search every workbook, lesson guide, folder, pencil & dry erase marker bag and box. I wasn’t worried he’d find something because I’m careful not to bring in anything which would get me into trouble. I enjoy my time in the jail but I don’t want to call it home! When he finished, he thanked me and I went on my way.

I reflected on this random search and how our lives might be different if every now and then our hearts, minds and spirits were opened, thoroughly inspected and all their contents were lit up for the whole world to see.
