This is an LKL Web Exclusive by Richard Miles, Keith Turner and Billy James Smith, three men wrongly convicted of crimes, and authors Peyton Budd and Rev. Dorothy Budd. The men's stories are chronicled in the new book "Tested: How Twelve Wrongfully Convicted Men Held onto Hope"!
By Richard Miles
My name is Richard Ray Miles and first and foremost I appreciate the opportunity to appear on the Larry King Show. It has always been a dream to have my 15 minutes of fame and what better way to embrace fame than with Mr. Larry King.
I was asked to write a small essay on the reality of false imprisonment and the things that I overcame while incarcerated. It is no secret now to the entire nation that people are Falsely Imprisoned. That is now a resounding truth, so there is no need to write on that topic. What I will do, is let you, the reader, know why the book Tested is important and a tool that any and everyone should get.
Prison is not just a physical location. Every day we witness someone in prison, whether it is a mental issue, emotional state of mind, financial insecurity or spiritual weakness. THOSE ARE ALL PRISONS. So there is a direct relation between our struggles and your everyday struggles. You never know the strength you have until you have been placed under the pressure that requires more than you feel you have. I had to realize who I was and I had to accept who God made me to be. Once I accomplished that, I began to see my strengths, use them, acknowledge my weaknesses and work on them, but all in the same instance, thank God for the trail I had to go through.
I can’t say that my situation was worse than the next person, nor can I say it was better, but what I will say is the determining factor in all our struggles is WHAT IS THE POSITION OF YOUR HEAD, meaning what are you looking for and at. That is what being truly TESTED is about.

I’m sitting on the plane, flying to LAX, with my mother and six of the men from the book. We are all friends. We’re excited and nervous; we make jokes and fool around. But every now and then I am struck by an overwhelming sadness. For the majority of their adult lives, these men were locked in 8X9 foot cells, counting down the days of a sentence that was not really theirs. Years of knowing that the real perpetrator walked the streets, knowing that family members were growing up and changing, and wondering if anybody really believed the truth.
Flying scares me. During this three hour flight, I am counting down the minutes with a strange, internal mixture of boredom and terror. Three hours seems like forever, but what about three years, thirteen years, more.
The book Tested tells the story of twelve men who suffered the horrors and injustice of wrongful conviction. It goes past the surface, past the news story and asks the questions: How did you survive? What really got you through this experience? In the answers to these questions we found stories that made us angry, stories that made us laugh, and stories that made us cry. Beyond the tragedy of wrongful conviction, there are amazing men full of hope and resilience who have taught me to take nothing for granted and live every moment with conviction and integrity. I think the book portrays these men and their stories in a way that can help us all cope with the many tests of our lives and come out better for it on the other side. After decades of silence, these men deserve to be heard. For more about the book visitwww.testedthebook.com.

This is a LKL Web Exclusive by Chef Cat Cora, President and Founder of "Chefs for Humanity" (www.chefsforhumanity.org):
I was born in the 60's in Mississippi. I was also born gay. Yes, that's right BORN gay. Believe me, I tried to pray "it" away at church every Sunday like a good Christian girl from the South. I tried to date "it" away, dating good guys who didn't understand why I wouldn't, no couldn't, be with them completely. I wanted so badly to be straight like my friends. But I couldn't change it anymore than I could change having brown eyes. And I knew I would never fit into what kids thought was normal.
When I finally met my first love, I was 17. I fell in love and didn't have one friend who I could tell. There was no giggles and gossip and no gushing about how beautiful, smart and wonderful she was. There were definitely no "meet the parents" dinners. I endured the love and loneliness alone. The passion was liberating but the breakup was almost unbearable.
So when a young person who is gay takes their life, my heart breaks to pieces. But, I also know their pain. I understand how fragile life is being young and gay. Being a "freak" as some people would like to call us is hell on earth. Straight kids have no idea how much it sucks. One trauma can break you and change life as you know it, and you are gone forever.
