So where the hell have we been? That seems to be the question of the day. We are still here. Tales will never die, not so long as there is injustice, not so long as there is brutal treatment and misguided punishment for the “criminals” of our society. I’d like you all to remember that not all people in prison are bad, mistakes are made but nine times out of ten the punishment doesn’t fit the crime. That is an aspect we’ve not touched on much yet here on Tales, but one we most certainly will discuss. Tales is in constant reconstruction with editing, with graphic design, with all the fun, eye catching stuff. Working with clients and their families and the families right here working for Tales. This is more than just a business, we are a family. If you are reading, and you spot an error, shoot us a message. Your help not only helps us here at Tales, it helps our convict family as well. Help is help is help ya know it people, whether it comes in the form of a donation, of a book, of words of kindness, or of pointing out our errors, and in this world, we could all use a hand, admittedly or not!!
A lot of thank yous need to go out, so please take a moment and check these fine folks out. Maria Shriver has been following the site, and taking interest in what we have to say here. So please check her out on Twitter and give her a little tweet and a right on, letting her know you saw her on Tales!! Another big thank you needs to go out to Mr. George Jung’s people. They have helped and encouraged Tales From The Cells before Tales even cut teeth. There are several other political people, news anchors, and just the average every day Joe and Jill that have helped by spreading the word about us. I’d like to thank all of you with one of my favorite quotes: "The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning." ~Ivy Baker Priest
In the coming weeks we have a few very cool things planned. The holiday season is incredibly hard on not only our loved ones in prison but the loved ones on the other side of the fence. I would like to get a “card tree” started. Stay tuned for more details. We have a 10 part series on FCC Oakdale in Oakdale, Louisiana. Katfish has given exceptional detail as well as the hard facts. His persona and writing ability has opened the window to let us all view inside Federal Prison and what it is really like, and due to his writing, he has suffered. He has spent countless days in SHU aka The HOLE for letting you know what is happening, he has been moved and transferred because there is not a thing wrong with what he is doing, but nobody likes to be discovered in such a public manner. Tales From The Cells genuinely appreciates his contribution to the web site and we hope to continue to hear from him as he is a very special part of this family now.
We’d also like to send a special shout out to ALL the boys at FCC Oakdale! Be good and be well fellas, you have become part of our thoughts now. Welcome to the Tales family, where no one is left behind. Delays, oh hell yes there are delays here. Sometimes LONG delays, but nobody is left behind nor forgotten. My husband has shown incredible patience with me as life sometimes tends to drag ME along and I don’t always have the world by the short and curlies, thus the web site work suffers. No excuses, just the reality I live in. This work is very important to me and to several others. This cause is extreme and is something that will not stop until everyone is AWARE and the system revamped. If everyone took one small baby step towards this goal, we could make a deafening change.
If any of you have comments, suggestions, loved ones you’d like to see featured, a story of your own perhaps, please contact me!!! Any message will be welcomed and addressed promptly.Thank you for your time, and as always, thank you for your support at Tales From The Cells. It’s more than just a web site, it’s a lifeline and a place that gives our husbands, wives, sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, Aunts, Uncles, loved ones and friends, the convicts of society a voice.
Be Good and Be Well, Hug your loved ones a little tighter, laugh a little longer, love a little harder and remember that life is too short to be sad all the time…
