CCI PO Box 900

BD 1983, 34 YO
Ali Mursal was very withdrawn when he first wrote. He could only write a few words and they were always the same- he needed love. He would not leave his cell even when he was in general population. He has grown a lot and now talks freely about his feelings. His brother shed some light on Ali problems. The family is from Kenya and when Ali was 7, he saw his father murdered . Ali was treated very badly also. The family are refugees from that period .
Ali needs a friend badly and has no idea of the give and take
friendship requires. We are looking for a mature woman who can regularly
write this man and demand of him more than just testimony of how lonely he
is. Like many people who are confused and desperate, he shows little
curiosity about the world around him and is focused ironically on one
thing- getting love. The closed and open fist is a good analogy for ALI- his fist is tightly closed- not interested except in one thing- so there is little exchange between him and the world. He is ready to learn however.
I will partner with who ever chooses to help this man- he is less trapped than he was and is going to school for his GED. I have positive feelings about his capacity to learn what true friendship is and I hope someone will come forward to help.
If you decide to write this man, feel free to use FFUP return address, Email email@example.com to do so. Also, We can address any questions you have.
yours, Peg Swan
