Posted by Jud Wilhite I was so proud of my friend Gary this past weekend at Central in Vegas.

He has been through a lot in his life and he's taking responsibility, caring for his wife and kids, and manning up.

He took the hook to Eminem's "Not Afraid" and laid down his own words from his life.

This is his story, a person of the second chance. Hope it fires you up as it did me.
