Felons’ experiences can improve society (Guest Voice)
No one ever really dies is true. Plato was not the only one that expressed this. God has said it. Your heart beats several times a minute after you are dead. God said “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” – 1 John 3:18NIV.
People can be taken to jail but their voices are still there. Our mouths are a very small portion of our physical bodies and the way we move means more than anything. So, we must value what our anatomies do. Felons lose a vote but they do not lose their souls. They work for the state or country that they live in. They send out letters. They send out cards. They make phone calls.
All of this costs. Why not give them e-mail addresses with our governments that will be free?
Inmates speak at schools. Prisoners speak at businesses. Detainees work at the Governor’s Office in our states through our state Department of Corrections. These jailbirds can make money for our government with an e-mail address that is watched through our Department of Corrections at the state and federal level. How much would Jesse Jackson Jr. earn?How much would OJ Simpson make? How much would Martha Stewart produce?
These people can bring the lessons they learned from their wrongs to the public so we can reduce crime and promote the goodness of God in our government. All the government has to do is make sure that the people emailing have serious inquiries for our government to get more revenue from our convicts.
