From some of the deadliest beasts, to college grads, wimps, pimps and DADS…with prison sentences ranging from things only imaginable and showing the raw uncut horrors of incarceration in an attempt to give back to society and save our youth… Letters to Our Sons: A Collections of Letters by Prisoners & Ex-Prisoners to Stop Mass Incarceration of Our Youth. A Global Must ReadFrom behind the steel fences of maximum security prisons in throughout the United States, over 80 inmates took control of their lives. They ‘stepped up’ in an effort to put an end to crime and the mass incarceration of youth in the United States of America. From their personal and collective experiences, these men have become acutely aware of their circumstance. They now see that more young adult males and teenage boys enter the prison system than those who graduate high school or college. Having now spent a substantial amount of their productive lives in prison, they are observing male youth entering the system by the truckloads as if there were no other options. They are determined to see how they can put an end to this trend.After deep meditation and personal reflection, these prisoners have decided to create meaning of their lives, give back and write about their troubled past which has led to their imprisonment and current experiences of incarceration. Using powerful, heart-wrenching candid narrative, these inmates speak about prison as an institution of the United States government. These men describe how prison is a place of mental destruction and the violence they are subjected to, providing insight into the lousy food they must subsist on and articulate the overall dehumanization that each man now is forced to contend with, many for the rest of their lives. However, regardless of how downtrodden their lives have become, when called to task, they were able to find both the strength and courage to reveal their true wisdom and give hope to youth to make meaning of their lives before it’s too late.Author Dawn Simmons with assistance of Horace Abney aka Heru Mossiah Ma’at have collected personal letters from convicted burglars, drug dealers, bank robbers, and murderers, expressing in their own words the need for the youth to wake up before they find themselves in a cell in one of the modern day concentration camps that the prisoners call the ‘The Department of Corruption.’Read this much needed personal account filled with powerful messages and words of enlightenment from the heart to do all one can to save our sons from the ever growing mass incarceration of our youth.
