Wasted Honor -

Carl R. ToersBijns is the author of the Wasted Honor Trilogy [Wasted Honor I,II and Gorilla Justice] and his newest book From the Womb to the Tomb, the Tony Lester Story, which is a reflection of his life and his experiences as a correctional officer and a correctional administrator retiring with the rank of deputy warden in the New Mexico and Arizona correctional systems.

Carl also wrote a book on his combat experience in the Kindle book titled - Combat Medic - Men with destiny - A red cross of Valor -

Carl is considered by many a rogue expert in the field of prison security systems since leaving the profession. Carl has been involved in the design of many pilot programs related to mental health treatment, security threat groups, suicide prevention, and maximum custody operational plans including double bunking max inmates and enhancing security for staff. He invites you to read his books so you can understand and grasp the cultural and political implications and influences of these prisons. He deals with the emotions, the stress and anxiety as well as the realities faced working inside a prison. He deals with the occupational risks while elaborating on the psychological impact of both prison worker and prisoner.

His most recent book, Gorilla Justice, is an un-edited raw fictional version of realistic prison experiences and events through the eyes of an anecdotal translation of the inmate’s plight and suffering while enduring the harsh and toxic prison environment including solitary confinement.

Carl has been interviewed by numerous news stations and newspapers in Phoenix regarding the escape from the Kingman prison and other high profile media cases related to wrongful deaths and suicides inside prisons. His insights have been solicited by the ACLU, Amnesty International, and various other legal firms representing solitary confinement cases in California and Arizona. He is currently working on the STG Step Down program at Pelican Bay and has offered his own experience insights with the Center of Constitutional Rights lawyers and interns to establish a core program at the SHU units. He has personally corresponded and written with SHU prisoners to assess the living conditions and how it impacts their long term placement inside these type of units that are similar to those in Arizona Florence Eyman special management unit where Carl was a unit deputy warden for almost two years before his promotion to Deputy Warden of Operations in Safford and Eyman.

Making Peace and become a Peacemaker

The world is in turmoil today, more than ever. Whatever we do, say or think has become an obstacle to someone else feelings. They are offended so easily today, they literally cry when affected by our words or actions.
Crying and whining like a baby as if they never felt pain before. Handling adversity, a change of opinion or approach and disagreement has become a traumatic experience for many. It has almost reached a ridiculous stage in your life to be so easily offended by words or things around you.
Rather than becoming weaker, become stronger and the way you become stronger is to join those who seek peace. Think about making peace with God and then move along and make peace with family and friends and even strangers. I believe that if you begin to make peace with God, yourself and others, you will become clear in mind and focused on the good rather than the bad.
If you ask God for peace, then peace you shall receive and join other peacemakers. I believe that if you ask God to help you be a peacemaker, if you will stop being so vulnerable to the ideas and thoughts of others, He will supernaturally cause that urge to be offended will be extinguished.
Peace and unity are so important because we have an enemy who is after this generation. Remember, the Bible tells us that blessed are the peacemakers. When we dwell together in unity, we honor God and open the door for His hand of blessing in every area of our lives! Make this day the day you find your peace with God - it's well worth the effort to be a peacemaker - the rewards are plentiful blessings.

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." (Matthew 5:9, KJV)
