Is there any hope?

Dear Ms Lee,

I found your site through Sisters in Struggle. I've read almost all that is in this site and it is the same in every state. How can it be stopped? It can't. No one cares about the incarcerated. NO ONE.

It will continue to be a fight to stay alive. My husband is going to trial Dec 12th. I don't know how I will ever handle letting him go. Prison will make him hateful and what will that leave me with? I'm a fighter but to get involved means I'm risking my husband being mistreated even more or even killed.

Do we have a prayer?


Yes, my friend, there IS hope and we have more than a prayer. There are over 2 million Americans in prison today, 5 million more on probation or parole, more than any nation in the world. Think of the ripple effect in the numbers of people who care just because it has touched their lives. All we have to do now is unite!

And never forget the David and Goliath thing: We are trying to do something right and noble. We are "ministering unto the least among us," as we were directed by the Highest Judge of all. We will have the truth as our shield and Love as our armor. Unexpected help will come. God never said, "Do it.." He just said try!

I cannot stress to you enough how much you can do to help yourself and your loved one survive intact.

It is also urgent that we get past the fear that allows things to go from bad to worse for everyone. We are facing a mighty force of corruption and it does seem impossible to change...unless we have those inside and those outside unite in strength and courage very vocally, very loudly. We certainly have the numbers. All we need is the unity.

If we want the system to be just and wise and aware, the wrongs of the system have to become a topic of heated debate.

I have included a sampling of good groups; people who are going through what you are about to experience.  Being involved will help your husband too. These groups will educate you, nourish you, and believe me, they will make the journey gentler.

Please tell your husband, People DO Care, the March in Washington on August 13th 2005 will prove that (See the Journey For Justice website for full details). If we persist, always in the spirit of Love, we WILL calm the beast. 

I will be praying for you both to find among the people on these lists the courage and strength you need to see you through. People like you are the reason they're here. They too once thought they were alone.

PS: Yes, dear friend... We have far more than a prayer. We have the awesome power of Love.  Kay Lee

I said, "God, I hurt."
And God said, "I know."

I said, "God, I cry a lot."
And God said, "That is why I gave you tears."

I said, "God, I am so depressed."
And God said, "That is why I gave you sunshine."

I said, "God, life is so hard."
And God said, "That is why I gave you loved ones."

I said, "God, my loved one died."
And God said, "So did mine."

I said, "God, it is such a loss."
And God said, "I saw mine nailed to a cross."

I said, "God, but your loved one lives."
And God said, "So does yours."

I said, "God, where are they now?"
And God said, "Mine is on My right and yours is in the Light."

I said, "God, it hurts."
And God said, "I know."

The family section of Making the Walls Transparent is devoted to all non-prisoner victims of the DOC.

*If you have experienced stress and pain directly related to DOC activities,
and you are willing to help enlighten the general public about the reality of dealing with the DOC, Contact me, Kay Lee,
404-212-0690

*Anyone who cares about those inside will have to deal with the DOC eventually.  We have found DOC employees to generally either pass the buck, deny everything, give bad information, or just be plain rude.  We've found most of them to be unhelpful, dishonest, stubborn, secretive, etc etc.  Some are friendly while not giving you answers, and some are not.  But the majority of them tend to abuse their authority, and every abuser has a victim...

Their unacknowledged victims are everyone everyone on the outside who has to pray while looking for answers to find one helpful human being in the DOC.

For those few DOC employees who remember they are dealing with human beings, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

I give gold stars to professionals like this, so please send your nominations for deserving employees. Include name, facility, and a summary of why you want to thank them.

If you know of a support group that should be listed here, please contact me and I'll get it up pronto.  Now is our chance to build the unity it is going to take to force
professionalism into the DOC.

If you have a story you'd like published on these pages send them to me.

And thank you for being part of the spirit for change.
