love, loss & art

Mar. 21, 2024

Relationships with people in the outside world are essential for maintaining hope, working towards rehabilitation, and reducing recidivism. Letters, emails, and in-person visits from friends and family bring a shred of humanity to an otherwise inhumane environment. In Sterling's case, he found a pen pal that would become very dear to his heart. And in writing, he began to express himself in a way that people would finally listen. 


This episode includes description of suicidal ideation. (Minute 7:57-9:47). Listener discretion is advised. If you or anyone you know is struggling with a mental health crisis or suicidal thoughts, please call 988.
