A famous author once said,
"Monsters are real, and so are ghosts, we all have
them inside of us and sometimes they win."

My question is, are those of us that has allowed those
monsters and ghosts to win, are we exempt from love,
forgiveness, and understanding from the ones that has
one the battle?

I would gladly appreciate any kind of feedback from
anyone, male or female, and I respect ALL opinions!
Please feel free to get aat me if corresponding with an
incarcerated black male is not a problem for you.

May GOD bless you all!!

Hello, Dwayne,

I can only speak for myself, but I would say that everyone deserves the chance to connect with others in love, forgiveness and understanding. These all take work from both sides. I know that when I have a disagreement with my wife, or have hurt her feelings, it takes some thinking by me about what I've done and then effort to explain why I did what I did. Then sometimes I need to listen to her explain to me how much what I did hurt her and accept that I did hurt her, even if it makes me feel bad. Sometimes that back and forth goes on for a while before things "settle down". What I need to do, though, long term, is repair her trust in me by not hurting her and supporting her as a husband should. Eventually things even out and we're on solid ground again.

There is none of this without a chance. There is none of this with the "slamming of the door". Sometimes trust in someone is very difficult to repair depending on what hurt they've caused. There's always hope in the love, understanding and forgiveness you might find.

Hello, Dwayne

At first, sorry for my mistakes in English, I am brazilian, and my English vocabulary is still poor. Second, I m only interest in friendship, nothing more.
I read your very nice letter. I think you are very sensitive person.
I can imagine how difficult is for you to be in a prison. If you dont mind, I would like to know why are you there?
I am Portuguese and Literature teacher, I was born and raise in Brazil, Have you ever been here?
Where are you from? What did you do before to be there?
What are your favorite hobbies? food? book? movie?
God bless you.
Sincerely, Claudia
