Kristopher Davis I will be talking to Kristopher Davis, Dharma Friends Prison Outreach spokes person in reference to our prison systems in America. Trying to Reach those who have been lost to our human family. There is virtually no healing or hope in our nations' prisons. Society has fearfully, hatefully, or sorrowfully abandoned those who commit crimes. Yet, most who fill our prisons are the poor, the uneducated, the addicts, the minorities, the mentally ill, the brain-damaged, the lost, the unloved, the mentally deficient, and the pathologically angry. They need more than locked cells. They need our help. The Dharma Friends Prison Outreach Project believes that it is essential in any society to draw a circle around all its beings as having essential gifts to offer to all no matter what their life story may be. There is loss any time we draw a circle that shuts out those we wish to discard or deem expendable, too difficult, inconvenient, or even scary. At Compassion Works for All and our Dharma Friends Prison Outreach Project our motivation is to keep those in prisons and those in the free world connected to one another knowing that we all are part of the fabric of the whole of humanity, no matter how much pain and suffering we have caused to each other as well. We encourage prisoners to awaken to their potential and to share their gifts with others through the spiritual, psychological, and emotionally supportive newsletter, Dharma Friends, and our other free services offered to any incarcerated individual. Through our family of prisoners, subscribers, volunteers and supporters, we give compassion, healing education, wisdom, and hope to each other and to the community at large.
