Yesterday I was able to redeem a soul. The convict had lost all his goodness when I met him. After hearing about the unfortunate circumstances, violence, ill-treatment and torture that he had gone through in his life, I developed sympathy for him. I decided to restore his faith in life as he was a good soul. My little act of kindness and generosity changed the convict. He was full of gratitude when I called him my friend and saved him from being arrested. I gave my silver candlesticks to him so that he could start a new life. I believe that goodness dwells in all human beings and no one is born a criminal or sinner. I was happy to provide him a start as a respectable person. I can now sleep in peace.
