People, love one another. Talk to one another. Hug and kiss one another.
I had to go to jail today with my church to bring some prisoners some comfort and joy. I was really judgemental; we are wasting our time on the scum of the Earth. I thought prisoners don’t deserve any happiness or joy.
The prisoner I was paired for during a visit was a 25 year old man in for sexual assault. If that wasn’t bad enough, how was I going to bring him joy? He looked very suspicious and scared. I just wanted to get this over with. I asked what gifts he would like for Christmas and his answers rocked me to my core: to stop being hurt in prison and to be loved. He told me he hadn’t been hugged by anybody in 5 years. He was constantly being beat in prison.
I just wrapped him in my arms and we held each other for at least 30 minutes. He hugged as if his body and soul needed it to live.
I did see a smile on his face as I was leaving. Something as a simple hug can bring so much joy. Give them often.
