Email

Today I was delighted to wake up to this email from a guy who credits reading Hard Time for helping him recover from drugs: 

Hi Shaun, 
I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you. I was in a pretty dark place with drugs a few years ago and u came to visit my girlfriends school in bath. She got a signed book from u and have it to me for my birthday (she didn't quite know the extent of the hole I was in, I'd all but shut her out my life to keep her from it). I read hard time and it changed my life. Your books were the help I was too scared to ask anyone else for. I am terrified to even think we're I would be without u. What ur doing is amazing and u are the strongest man I know Shaun. I gave the book to my friends who were in the same situation as me and nearly all of them have pulled through and we are now doing absolutely brilliantly. 
So once again thank you, I will never be able to say it enough. 
Shaun xx

From T-Bone (Letter 36)

T-Bone is a massively-built spiritual ex-Marine, who uses fighting skills to stop prison rape. T-Bone’s latest letter:

There’s a guy in here called Ted, who got himself some crystal meth, and, man, is that stuff poison. He was walking around with his jaw going from side to side, and when he did sit, he couldn’t keep his legs still.

“Why are you doing that stuff?” I asked Ted.
“I have nothing else to do,” he said.
“You have a fleshly mind-set,” I said. “I know because I’ve been there.”

Ted wanted to buy pain medication to snort. He sent a youngster to sick call to try to obtain some. The youngster managed to get the meds, but kept them to himself.

“T-Bone, I need your help with the youngster,” Ted said. He had seen me stand up for the weaker guys who were trying to change.
“Duh,” I said.
“Everyone is ripping me off,” Ted said.
“Stop.”
“Stop what?”
“Doing dope, you dummy. If you make the effort to change, God will take care of the rest.” 

He didn’t listen. Some guys went into his cell and beat Ted up and took his dope.

From T-Bone (Letter 35)

T-Bone is a massively-built spiritual ex-Marine, who uses fighting skills to stop prison rape. T-Bone’s latest letter:

This is for all of the people out there who think drugs are cool. They put a guy in with me who was thin-in-the-wind skinny, as thin as an AIDS patient who is about to die. He was extremely sick coming off heroin, which in here has various names such as boy, black, Mexican mud and China white. I call it poison.

Right in front of me, the guy jumped up and started to puke. He pulled down his pants and crapped as he was puking. It was nasty. I couldn’t believe that I was looking at a man’s guts hanging out of his butt hole.

I told him I was getting him some help.
“They won’t do anything,” he said.
“I am a man of God,” I said.
I told the guards. They came and got him out of here.

There’s a big surge of heroin here in the States that has people sick all over the place. What heroin does to people is unreal. Him and people like him are hurting in a way that is inhuman. It takes an empty person to sell heroin to anyone. Heroin had reduced him to resembling a poor soul in a World War II death camp.

Steel embrace,

T-Bone
