[Herzensangelegenheit] Brieffreunde aus der Todeszelle

Ich habe mich heute im Hundepark mit einem Maedel unterhalten, das Brieffreunde im Gefaengnis hat. In der Todeszelle. Ist hier in Texas ja nichts Unbekanntes. Um meine persoenliche Meinung zu sagen, ich bin dagegen, aber darum geht es hier nicht.
Ich schreibe unheimlich gerne Briefe und Postkarten und genauso gerne empfange ich diese. Nachdem mir das Maedchen also von ihrem "Hobby" erzeahlt hat, habe ich ein wenig im Internet rumgegooglet, bin auf etliche Seiten gestossen und unter anderem auf eine Website aus Deutschland. Und da dachte ich mir, warum teile ich diesen Link nicht, vielleicht ist einer meiner Leser ja interessiert?

Die Seite nennt sich "Innitiative gegen die Todesstrafe" und listet verschiedene US-Staaten mit verfuegbaren Brieffreunden auf. Diese Gefangenen stellen sich jeweils mit einem kurzen Text und manchmal auch mit Photo(s) vor. Unten steht dann die Adresse unter denen ihr die jeweilige Person erreichen koennt. Zusaetzlich gibt es dann noch Hinweise auf Regeln, die in den einzelnen Gefaegnissen eingehalten werden muessen, wenn man Briefe schreibt.

Bisher bin ich mir noch nicht 100% sicher, ob das etwas fuer mich ist. Es geht mir nicht darum, dass diese Menschen etwas verbrochen haben (ich stehe der Justiz hier etwas unschluessig entgegen), sondern viel mehr darum, dass man sich bewusst sein muss, dass der Mensch, zu dem man eventuell eine Freundschaft aufgebaut hat [einige Insassen scheinen wirklich etwas im Kopf zu haben, ganz entgegen vieler Vorurteile ... die auch ich habe/hatte], letztendlich stirbt. Und mit sowas kann ich, glaube ich, nicht umgehen.
Ein Beispiel ist der junge Dexter hier aus Texas. Er ist 1988 geboren und in seinem Vorstellunsgtext schreibt er:

Hello my name is Dexter and I would like to meet you. I'm a young man (born June 1988) that is currently fighting for his life and the reason is because I have been wrongly convicted! I have a daughter who is the light of my life and the main person that keeps me motivated to keep fighting and not give up.
Under my circumstances it is not easy to grow. I'm isolated in a small cell where I spend 99.9% of my time. I am allowed out of my cell only 5 days a week, 2 hours each day and the other 2 days I'm locked in my cell all day. That's only 10 hours toseek out! I'm very discouraged by my situation, but even more saddened that it will stunt my full potential. I would like to study more about the issues of life and self-help. I enjoy reading novels, exercising, and staying up on current events. All the world has given up on me, I haven't given up on myself.
I'm interested in meeting you if you can offer a good exchange of letter's that would better my life. Just being there, having someone to talk to and to connect to can make all the difference.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Der mittlere Part beruehrt mich irgendwie. Allerdings bin ich mir unschluessig bei der Tatsache, dass er behauptet, er waere zu Unrecht dort. Das behaupten naemlich alle. Und ich wuerde sagen, dass es zu 90% nicht so ist. Aber gut, auch das ist meine Meinung.
Ich wollte euch diese Seite ans Herz legen, denn es sind auch nur Menschen, die in ihren letzten Tagen/Wochen/Monaten oder Jahren ein wenig Kontakt pflegen moechten, besonders wenn sich ihre eignen Familien von ihnen abgewandt haben.

  1. Ich habe darüber selbst erst vor wenigen Wochen erfahren und auch im Internet gesucht und bin auf die gleiche Seite wie du gestoßen.
    Ich habe nun vor wenigen Tagen einen Brief abgeschickt. Er geht nach Texas in die Polunsky-Unit. Ich habe eiwg gebraucht diesen Brief zu schreiben, weil ich's einfach nicht so leicht fand. Aber nun bin ich gespannt, was zurück kommt.:)
