Yes, the fact that Lil Wayne worked as a suicide prevention aid for practically nothing shows us that even those who have a great income can be humble and give back to the people. What we see on television and hear on the radio is usually a facade and can be considered work, but when it comes down to it, we can see that anyone can be human and help out those in need even when they are in a bad situation themselves.
I don't know if that is inspiring, but it is defiantly interesting . It is a little disenharteneing to hear that prisoners are being forced to answer the phones at these hotlines. People who do this should be trained and should have a vested interested in helping others not commit suicide.
Yes, Lil' Wayne saved lives while at Rikers by working as a suicide prevention aid. Lil' Wayne's actions are inspirational because he chose to reach out and save lives instead of sulking at his current situation. He found himself in a bad place, prison, and chose to make a difference in the world.
No, Lil Wayne's work as a suicide prevention aid at Rikers is not inspiring. Although suicide prevention work is an admirable endeavor, Lil Wayne was likely compelled to take this job, either by legal mandate or at his publicist's request. Furthermore, suicide prevention is one of the higher paying occupations among prisoners. I hardly think he should be patted on the back for taking this job from another prisoner who surely needed the money more than a wealthy entertainer. Unless Lil Wayne finds a way to continue his suicide prevention work beyond his jail time, I do not believe his story serves as inspiration.
