For 46 years, I have been incarcerated. And for over a decade, your prison book program has nourished me with books that keep prison from entering my mind. Those who sponsor your program with donations cannot begin to grasp the depth of their contribution. Books not only take away ignorance, but in addition to knowledge, they furnish a vast array of thoughts. And thoughts cannot be conquered by bars and walls and fences. Thank you for your service to the outcasts of America. We are where we are due to our ignorance, but you provide a wealth of intelligence.
