ExCon with Convictions singer songwriter Andy Dixon sings excerpts from “Lost and Never Found” while telling it like it is and how he feels it – Andy should know, he spent 27 years of an illegal life sentence without parole and was the 3rd of 4 generations to be incarcerated – he mixes his talk with sings and tries to bring us some insight and some light – as he says “most people are good people they don’t want to steal and rob, they do it out of desperation and need… contrary to most peoples belief not out of greed… sometimes, I think about a future where food clothes and shelter are considered a natural born right to a citizen, a citizen of the world where no one will have to go hungry, wonder where they are going to get clothes to put on their backs… where education will also be free and good and equal”…. “some folks say I’m a dreamer… I don’t believe that’s true. I believe I’m in the majority of folks… just like you… who believes together we can do what some people would call the impossible – sometimes we have to envision for each other what we can’t envision for ourselves”…. “It’s a hard hard life people… to be homeless, to be hungry to be without” recorded and edited by geo geller check more out at ExConWithConvictions.com IamConvicted.com
