    Letters are often the one means of communication a family can afford. Travel is not an option due to distance to the prisons and the excessive price of gas, more often than not. And communication is a necessity for both sides of the wire. It helps to keep a bond between parent and child. Separation from family is punishment enough. Children, wives, mothers, ect. Need not be tormented further by more strange laws on the books. I believe it to be cruel and abusive.

    So do elderly parents! Many are in prison for so long, for non-violent offenses, that they never get to see their parents again. How long does it take for offenders to realize they made a mistake, a lifetime? They need letters, not harassment.

    I just sent 28 postcards to inmates. No possible way to discuss ‘their business’ in a card. Still, I’m hoping a greeting is better than nothing. Glad to have the option of letters, so legal discussions, strategies possible.

    Pictures must also be mailed as postcards. It’s really not easy at all to communicate when there is no envelope.

    Prison should be a positive experience. Rehab is next to nil. Separation from families is punishment enough. Prisoners need to retain their dignity and have the support of families, and for many, letters continue the bond. It gives them a ray of Hope. Punishment day in and day out, deprivations, and isolation accomplish nothing positive. Vengeance by the keepers of the key are also harmful and should not be allowed.
