Solitary in Iran Nearly Broke Me. Then I Went Inside America's Prisons.

http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/10/solitary-confinement-shane-bauer

Excerpt.......A must read article, of the pain and torture in prisons

"What I want to tell Acosta is that no part of my experience—not the uncertainty of when I would be free again, not the tortured screams of other prisoners—was worse than the four months I spent in solitary confinement. What would he say if I told him I needed human contact so badly that I woke every morning hoping to be interrogated? Would he believe that I once yearned to be sat down in a padded, soundproof room, blindfolded, and questioned, just so I could talk to somebody?.............."

People can change: Juveniles should not receive life sentences












(pic not of this article)

http://www.pennlive.com/editorials/index.ssf/2012/10/people_can_change_juveniles_sh.html

Excerpt.....PLEASE read full article, very interesting and informative

"Up until a few years ago, the fact that minors could receive life sentences did not concern me in the least. As the wife of a law enforcement officer, I had little mercy for offenders of any age, and the mantra “adult time for adult crime” was something my husband and I heartily endorsed.

Our bias against inmates ran deep, and we had no desire to extend any kind of friendship. But over the course of a few years, as this young man continued to write to us, it became evident that he was not at all like what we had imagined.The first indication of that came months after we began writing, when he refused our offer to give him a small amount of money to purchase art supplies............"

My personal thanks to the author for sharing this information. I agree children do change in their growing years, they DO "deserve a chance." Strongly urge our communities to get educated and involved in juvenile law "reform." We must help them to help themselves.

A coming together of "hearts"











So many shattered lives and broken hearts, suffering in silence, support needed but living lonely lives, not reaching out, for the world's pop. is so cold and cruel, how can one trust when betrayed so many times, faith is lost and trust is destroyed. IMO, communications is one contributing factor toward some therapy and healing on the soul. It IS most difficult to reach out and share our world, treading cautiously in finding that one true and honest person, which is so rare in today's world. We all have that need for love, compassion, kindness, we are always seeking to bring some peace and comfort in our lives. Paying it forward is always FREE, a little "time" is so simply to do ♥ ♥
