Writing to a person sentenced to death


 
printable version

Several hundreds are the prisoners sentenced to death who, thanks to the Community of Sant'Egidio, correspond with friends from all over the world. They are prisoners living in the prisons not only of the USA, but also of other countries, like Trinidad and Tobago, Cameroun, Zambia, or where, like in Russia, all the death sentences were commutated in life inprisonment.

 

"...I have been framed in a death row for 5 long years, I entered here as a boy, now I am a man and I understand many things, but I am no more able to do anything for my life... Even if you can't help me to get out of here, you can write me, be me friends..."

(Dominique, Texas)

"I am a young 29-year-old man detained in the death row for 3 years.  I am seeking a pen-pal to be less lonely."

(Michael, Florida)

"... Your letter surprised me. It was strong in me the idea that with one like me no one could want to correspond, to talk about clean, sincere, friendly things..."

(Aleksej, Siberia)

 

 

There are many good reasons
to become pen-pals
of a person sentenced to death.

 Do you yourself want to become
a pen-pal of a one of them?

If so, write me and let me know in what languages you are able and/or prefer to correspond. I will answer you as soon as possible sending you the name and the profile of a prisoner who expressed the desire of corresponding. If you want to have other explanations, write me, I will answer to your questions. Bye.
