Emma J. Bell/Joseph Oubelkas

Today’s #butterflykisses is Emma’s interview with Joseph O.  He says he had a great youth and got his degree and started his own IT company by the age of 20.  By 24, he was working successfully for a client in Morocco, which was the land of his father. One day, for no apparent reason, he was surrounded by gunmen, taken in for questioning and convicted of a crime he didn’t commit.  And, despite the court finding errors in the process and determining the alleged conviction was wrong, they held him for TEN years in appalling conditions.

Joseph believes thriving is determining your own luck and path. He said the barbed wires of the prison were not going to determine his luck. He said “I’m going home as me and no one can change that.”
