Arguably, mail is the most important item in an inmate’s life. Every day a C.O. (correctional officer) comes around to each individual cell and yells the names of the lucky recipients. Envelopes and papers are the tales of whom’s important in that wing, cell, pod, or building.
Imagine the joy or the pain being decided by this officer. This officer represents more than the deliverer of mail; I mean, everyone knows that this dude ain’t the ones that wrote the letters or didn’t. We all just hoped that he would be our best ally to feeling loved…he held the piece of mail!
