Pen Pals: Find a friend behind enemy lines

October 5, 2009

Taking photos of prisoners is prohibited in many prisons, so the few that find their way out are precious. The Bay View thanks longtime subscriber and writer Uhuru Baraka (Brian Lee) Rowe, 1131545, Buckingham CC, P.O. Box 430, Dillwyn VA 23936, for sending this one.

Life behind enemy lines can be lonely, and a letter from a friend – a pen pal – can liberate mind and spirit. These prisoners are reaching out to you. They trust that Bay View readers truly care. Reach back and write a letter today!

If you can, light up life for a brother or sister behind the walls by making a donation to the Prisoners’ Subscription Fund. (Click on the DONATE button and specify the Prisoners Subscription Fund.) Put Bay View newspapers in the hands of prisoners wanting to move from the BayView subscription waiting list to the mailing list. Prisoners often write to say, “The Bay View keeps me alive.”

I’m 60 years old, been enslaved in the US prison system for 35 years. I am well educated in various subjects and can converse on any topic. I consider myself as an activist for causes of others and believe in helping others. I have strong principles and try to instill in others things of substance that could help them in their life struggles. I participate in teaching others of all races, I don’t discriminate, I demonstrate. I read and listen to all news from around the world and compare it with what is occurring over here and how to help out over there. People power is the only power that can transform a bad situation into a good situation. I strive to matter. I’d like to communicate with anyone seeking a relationship. I want to learn more and teach more, develop groups to do things for the youth communities, assist others, share thoughts, feelings and, yes, seek love and happiness. Juivonne Littlejohn, 141899, 13924 Wagada Road, Baraga, Mich. 49908-9204.

62-year-old Caucasian male prisoner in Virginia.

    I have been sentenced to a disproportional amout of time (75 years) for arm robbery. Although I am optimistic to eventually overcome this, it is what it is and every day is a struggle. Nevertheless: strong I remain. My faith in my self has never wavered. I am 36 years young, born June 9th 1972. Although I am open to relating and exchanging with someone about life, I’d be happy if someone could assist me on the creative side. I do portraits.

    Rob just turned 21 on 3/8. He just doesn’t belong where he’s at. His family lives in Georgia, hundreds of miles away. His paternal grandparents see him every few months. His parents are divorced and make all kinds of promises to him such as that they’ll visit but they don’t. He’s been in jail since he was 19. He looks like a sweet kid but he sure has lived a hard life. He suffered with leukemia from a small child until it went into remission when he was 14.

    Thanks for posting this, it is so important and rewarding for both to correspond with and befriend someone in (or outside) prison. It is also very important for healing society, and many need help to be redeemed.

    This message is for meaty..I lost the closest very best friend I ever had to worthlessness sum years back I no longer know what is is to have a real friend anymore, after being repeatedly betrayed by imposters w/ an agenda posing to be friends I safeguarded my heart thinking Im better off without a so-called ” friend” now with nothing more than a couple acquaintances I find myself wishing I had some one to talk to, someone to confide in for advice or gentle constructive criticism. other then myself, I didn’t know a person of the sort still exsisted. more and more everyday I long with every fiber of my being to be reunited with genuine friendship..I miss you. We miss you..I never stopped loving you. And happy birthday…

    It says my comment must be approved before it will appear. I will be more than happy to send proof of his manipulations. Email me. Please don't aid him in scamming another person. I was shocked at this ad! He doesn't even like black people and is a constant user of the "n" word . I will be glad to scan you in proof of that upon request as well! Just send me an email!
