Contrary to popular belief, there is laughter here. While none of us want to be here, guys make the best of it by finding creative and fun ways to take their mind off of the present. This is especially true during the holidays.
Christmas and the New Year lands in a month, and I feel the same optimism and excitement that I feel every year! Oh, it’s not optimism and excitement for a new year. No. Rather, I can only imagine what fun and shocking things I’ll witness this holiday season. The holidays have a way of bringing out the best and worst in guys. There’s never a dull moment!
The holidays are all about family and community. So many of us can’t be with the ones we love, and this is ever so apparent for those who have a loved one that’s incarcerated. The holidays are a festive time of year, but for some the holidays magnify one’s absence. Remember, be kind to those around you, because that’s what it’s all about.
