Murder Story


There are schools, and there are schools. Some are highly respected by society. They offer book learning, a competitive grading system, and a fast track to the top of the social ladder.

Some of these schools  have have higher prestige, status, and celebrity than others. A diploma or degree  from one of these institutions can open many doors that lead to respect, social acceptance, and wealth.

The street can also serve as a school. So can a prison. Your education in these hard knuckle schools will not earn you society’s blessings or certificates that open doors. But they can definitley give you a priceless education.

They can teach you survival and a profound understanding of human psychology,  They can unleash creativity. They can cultivate compassion; They can offer you hard won lessons of  great wisdom.

These schools can destroy you. If they don’t, they can forge integrity and strength of character and prepare you to enrich the world with your unique brand of authenticity and contribution.

Will Latif Little forged his character and special gifts on the streets of Philadelphia and in Holmesburg Prison, a terrifying penitentiary known as the Terradome to its inmates.

Will Little served ten years in the Terradome for murder. His own tagline describes him as a man who went from convicted murderer to committed life coach. Here are some of his accolades:

  • He leaves people forever changed.
  • No one forgets Will Little.
  • He’s a category of one.

Those words do not express unearned praise. Will played a high stakes game to win them. It was a life and death game.

Will emerged from prison, a wise, loving, intuitive, and compassionate person with a gift for healing others. He heals damaged and disturbed psyches; he heals souls.

He is an author, speaker, and mentor to troubled youth.

Give yourself the special gift of hearing this authentic inspiring man on today’s episode of Change Your Story, Change Your Life.
