“Paid In Full is an inspirational story of one man’s journey to overcome the challenges of life in order to make a difference in the lives of others. This is the story of a modern day hero. Faced with hardships, discrimination, and emotional loss, Karl Peace’s journey is a testimony of what a person can accomplish when they devote themselves to the pursuit of excellence. Moreover, his many acts of compassion and genuine care throughout his life’s journey for those who are less fortunate speak volumes about his character. Paid In Full provides a wonderful example to our society about putting others before oneself, a value that seems to have gone by the wayside in our modern day society.”
