Allow me to Began this with my sincere apology for the delay in our production of this fifth issue of the P.U.R.E. Report. Unfortunately prison oppression on Texas Death Row has increased dramatically, and that caused an interference with maintaining our efforts to acquire material from prisoners in a timely manner. Thankfully we have managed to obtain enough material to present this predominantly spiritual issue of of our newsletter.
Why the spiritual theme?
Well, as I've stated above, there have been an increase in prison oppression on Texas Death row, and we at the P.U.R.E Report found it quite inspirational that despite the challenges these men face, some of them still manage to obtain spiritual tranquility. And mind you, the atrocious treatment a death row prisoner endure in Texas is very draconian.
This penal regiment style of solitary confinement (aka their super max facilities) creates a ferocious mental and emotional assault on a person incarcerated in that environment and when you combined that struggle with sensory deprivation, it truly gives a great testament to these mens constitution and perseverance to develop spiritual awareness. So I hope that their actions may encourage other to pursue a course of victory despite any dire situation you may encounter.
Now within this fifth issue we have included a very touching article written by Maria.M it's a rather compelling piece which illustrates a profound spiritual bond between two friends.Then there is the exceptionally intelligent Ms.Silke Wimme who presents us with an insight on the movement for liberation within the middle East. Now Ms.Wimme's article isn’t' one that is of a spiritual element. However we at the P.U.R.E. Report must maintain our goal of bringing our readers informative material.
So we hope you will enjoy this fifth issue of our newsletter. Take care, and peace and solidarity to you all.
Kamau P. Emerson.
