We all have our inner world -- the place that we feel and hurt and love -- and don't necessarily share with everyone.
Recently, I met a woman whose stepfather had a heart-stopping story in his past that she had been totally unaware of -- and didn't discover until she found his memoirs when she was cleaning out his apartment after he died.
This man, John D. Gilbert, a humble, quiet janitor and pastor, husband to her widowed mother never gave her a clue that he had spent almost a quarter century in the most violent prison in this country for a murder he did not commit.
For more about this heart-wrenching, heart-warming story, look at Pastor with a Past in Kickstarter:
John Gilbert was the kind of guy who did all he could for those around him.
