Today over two million people are
in prison in this country.
Many of them for nonviolent crimes.
Because of mandatory sentence laws,
some people are sent to prison
for 5, 10 or even 20 years
for simply possessing illegal drugs.
One thing that some people do is
become pen pals with people in prison.
It can be very lonely spending
year after year in prison,
most of it spent in a single prison block,
often for twenty three hours a day.
Prisoners lose contact with
their family members and friends.
A letter can make a tremendous difference!
Many people are intimidated by
the idea of writing to a prison.
Just remember that
they are people too!
Everyone needs and is entitled
to have a friend.
