Ely State Prison Facebook inmate, family & friends support page is there to offer support, share stories, share frustrations, posting of poems and art and more. We care!
This is what I wrote for my PP who is really one of my best friends these days. Always kind, more concerned about my well being than his own and always a gentlemn.
Between your walls of confinement, you will find me. I will be there beside you
There will be moments of bleakness, moments of anxiety and moments of feeling despair
But my heart will not desert you, my devoting will not fail you and my love will not abandon you
Between your walls of regrets,
In December 2011 I watched a documentry on US prisons. I decided to write to a prisoner, chose a prisoner who was jhaving a birthday on that day. A month went by with no reply but then I received the moste appreciative letter I had ever received followed by a card that made me cry.
I am not sorry that I started writing to my PP. In so many ways he has changed my life. The mail service between South Africa and the US take on average 2 to 4 weeks. I wait in antispation all the time.
