My dad is in prison and has been for a while now and we talk by sending letters. I read that someone sent cards to inmates at jails and prisons so I thought about what I could do and I sent a letter to my dads prison but it was addressed to ALL inmates. It said that they may not know me, but that I was praying for each and everyone of them to be able to get out and go home to friends or family.
Later, my dad wrote back to say that everyone was so happy to know that someone cared about them.
What a wonderful thing to do. You Dad is blessed to have your for his child.

See this article made me jump, after all in all in the eyes of the man in the prison are doing bad things, but had not thought they may also have difficulty, also need someone to care, let me know, everything can not only see the surface, need to think carefully in order to understand the truth.

i doubt some of them cared much because it does not get them out of prison. and they are not in prison because there all lovey dovey but good gesture. it was a very nice thing to do on your part though.

I think we forget how much the people we don't think deserve it need that act of kindness the most. You are a very compassionate person. stay that way.
