You could show you care about a human - write to the "least of these" - a prisoner

"Are you looking to write someone in prison, but you're not sure what to do? It's simple. No signup is required. Just click the Search or Browse button above and find someone that interests you. At the top of that page, click the Contact Inmate button. Write a letter, get an envelope and a stamp, and send it off."

I think we underestimate our own evil. Tomorrow any of us might answer our mobile while driving and crash into a dozen schoolchildren. We could then be a prisoner, too.

What about truly evil prisoners? First, beware to not give personal information if you should not. Second, really evil people are still people - there are hundreds of good arguments to show them some love and mercy. Are love and mercy now dirty words?

I am actually sad that Prison Voices says that it discriminates against various prisoner categories. I hope that even the very worst prisoner gets some pen pals, and, by some miracle, is healed at least somewhat.

I may not be a Christian, but I do believe in a lot the ideals of Jesus.

  1. Charles, seems like Prison Voices website no longer exists. Just for your information.
