Message from Myron Askew:

In 1993, at the age of seventeen, I was tried and convicted as an "Aider & Abettor" to two counts of Second Degree Murder, two counts of Assault w/intent to murder and felony firearm. I was the youngest of two codefendants, both of whom were adults and have been released from prison.
At the time of these murders, I made some choices of which I'm ashamed to admit, I offer no excuses for the wrong that these hands have wrought and for the choices that I made. At that time, I didn't understand the severity of pain and trauma that I caused to the family and the love ones of whom I murdered because I had no respect for human life, not even my own, but now, twenty six years later, I have grown and matured into manhood and am deeply remorseful for the choices that I made and to the family members of whom I hurt. I humbly seek for forgiveness.
In these years of being incarcerated, transformation was not an over night process, but in studying self. I understand why I made the choices that I made and how and why I will never make such choices again in life!!! As an "lifer" here in Michigan, programs for help and assistance are almost non existence because they go by your (ERD) earliest release date so the classes that I was blessed to attend, I went in with my Heart, soaking up everything that I can so that I can renew my mind and through persistence, I've been blessed to participate in many of classes and knowing that education is the key to success, I'm always trying to learn. I'm always trying to strengthen my mind and extend my growth so that the choices I made twenty six years ago will Never Be An Option Again In Life!!!
I pray for a second chance at life, I pray that I'm able to Right the wrongs that I committed in life, not only by doing what's right but by breathing New Life into those of whom look up to me and that believe in me. I have a daughter whom loves me and fight for me/us Everyday, Whom Love Is The True Definition Of Unconditional And I Am Thankful To The Creator, but I also understand that the choices that I make in life are ultimately mine and Mine Alone to Own!!!
Not only in my Heart but In My Soul Also, I Know that I'm Ready for Life, I'm Ready to Live!!!
