have been supremely blessed to meet some of the most talented writers, poets and artists, since establishing this newsletter
in 1998. I have also been blessed to call a few of the brothers and sisters friends.
To the family and friends
of men and women incarcerated I implore you to remember your loved one locked down. If you can't accept collect calls, send
money or visit, do write a letter. Letters matter. Keep your loved one abreast of what is going on outside within
the family and community. Your news from home means alot to someone displaced between prison walls.
When your loved one comes
up for Parole, write a letter of support even if you can not attend the parole hearing. Any support you offer is valuable.
Support of our loved ones
means more to them than we can ever imagine. So remember your care and consideration can come in small ways too.
44 cents can give a priceless smile!
