Write to Marissa Alexander the Mother of Three Who Endured Domestic Violence, Now Sitting in Prison for 20 years
The following is a letter Marissa Alexander. This is the real life human being. She is not a news item. She is not something to discuss around the water cooler in the office. She is not a concept, she is a real-life mother of three. She is the real life victim of domestic abuse. She is the living, breathing human being locked in a catch for firing warning shots – “standing her ground” – in the state of Florida. This is the woman who was brought to court by the same corrupt prosecutor who never wanted to arrest George Zimmerman, and who – once he was finally prosecuted 45 days later – threw the case.
I want to thank each and every one of you for writing me, praying for me or even thinking of me in your heart and are continuing to do so. For the most part, I’m hanging in there, as well as one could in this environment. Prison is definitely NOT what’s happening. It’s dreadful here, but hey, it’s supposed to be, it is after all captivity.
My good days out weigh my bad days only because God is my source of strength. Please know that you all inspire me thru your communication and please know that the prayers that you offer up on my behalf are being answered. I’m so very blessed to have some of the most extraordinary people and organizations who are committed to supporting and encouraging me in every way. I will continue to believe in our justice system. I choose to do so because I have complete trust in God, and we are still a nation that has this fundamental belief embedded in our core, displayed in our courtrooms and written on our money, and more hopefully in our hearts.
Truly I couldn’t begin to express to you how much I appreciate your wonderful letters of encouragement. Please know that I do not take your time and kindness for granted. Your heart-felt concern I am most grateful for.
With all sincerity & respect,
What can you do? First and foremost, SPREAD THE WORD!

As with all prisoner correspondence (do not forget about other political prisoners who need the hope and encouragement of your mail), please include a self-addressed stamped envelope so that she is not forced to slave away for pennies to receive commissary money, to buy stamps.
