Family Interrupted Project http://familyinterruptedproject.com Wed, 21 Aug 2013 03:51:13 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=6.0.2 Shared by Anonymous http://familyinterruptedproject.com/2013/11/shared-by-anonymous-47/ Tue, 05 Nov 2013 03:45:02 +0000 http://familyinterruptedproject.com/?p=667 These facts make me feel desperate and so sad.*  I often think about the plight of the prisoners and the feeling that they are now trapped for life in a system which cannot “rehabilitate” or “correct” the real problems; Poverty, racism, social injustice.

I have two younger cousins who were incarcerated as minors. I think about how their sentences and records, and the experience of being incarcerated will affect their lives forever.

I have not visited them due to distance mostly, but it is such an insane barrier even without physical distance. The emotional and social distancing or prisoners from the public and their families is so harmful.

Too much time is spent making new laws, and not enough time is found to formulate viable solutions to keep prisoners from returning… or from becoming incarcerated in the first place.

I do not have a loved one behind bars.

I would visit, but they only allowed my dad one visitor every Wednesday, so I took my mom.

I do not have a family member behind bars, but if I did, I would visit, but many cannot. In New York State many incarcerated are sent to prisons upstate. These prisons are a 3 or 4 hour drive for some people, who don’t even drive or own a car.

His incarceration impacted me because he was living with me and it effects my family by arguing every day.

I do not visit. He has had many chances to clean his life up. He would rather sit in state prison then clean up and stop drinking.

Feels shocking to me. Too much money spent on prisons here in America. If drugs and the oldest profession (prostitution) would be legalized, there wouldn’t be so much over crowdedness and taxpayer money wasted. Thats just one example that would relieve over crowdedness.

I would visit an incarcerated family member, but I guess it depends on the crime. But I’m leaning towards no, cause I’m too proud and I would not want to be made to feel “low”, to go to a prison and go through the visitation process… etc. to visit someone that did so wrong / committed crime.

My older brother, M.E.F., committed suicide when I was 15 years old. He was only 21 years old. We believe he did it because of the high levels of cocaine he was on and because he was on the verge of going back to jail.

My Brother would rather have died, than be sent back to jail.

Last September, I met  Sean, the Director of Public Programming at Eastern State Penitentiary. We were both participating in a talk at the Philadelphia History Museum about art programs involving Prisons.

After learning about Family Interrupted,  Sean expressed interest in hosting one of our Mailboxes at Eastern State. We jumped at the opportunity, and this past week I collected a gigantic bag of responses from Eastern State.

Many thanks to Sean and his team, who are looking forward to keeping our mailbox on site for the for see-able future, and in doing so helping further this conversation about the impact of incarceration on families with the greater public.

These days folk don’t fear nothing because they lost HOPE! My brother
has survived all these years behind the prison walls because hope is
still alive in him. Praise God! I know he would have made sacrifices
for the sake of others (he was always a giver) still is! I know each

Dad and I do the best we can at building a daddy’s

I see my dad behind that glass barrier, but when it’s

All over again until our next visit. Sometimes

He’s constantly on my mind trapping me

Sometimes, its just the tree you arrived from, or just dumb choices.

I have a family member that is incarcerated, but the relationship isn’t important. Having an incarcerated family member in no way impacts me. I just stay in prayer and hope the individual will become better.

My Husband is incarcerated and I have (?) many times but sometimes is becomes normal to them once they been in the system. Thats the way to live. I stress and get worried if he is going to be mentally stable.

Support makes a difference and gives them hope to strive to be the right thing in the future for the sake of their family.

I pray a solution is provided somehow for their suffering. I have many family members incarcerated, and it is not trying anymore. God has given me peace w their situations.

I absolutely would visit them. They are my family and they made an ill decision that cost them their freedom, but it doesn’t lessen my love for them
