Many Americans Find Companionship to Be the Gateway to Inner Peace

People Are Social Creatures That Require Frequent Interaction to Be Happy

This press release was orginally distributed by ReleaseWire

North Dighton, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/23/2020 -- It has been proven time and again, that people who enjoy companionship are happier than those who do not. Likewise, people who cannot find companionship often fall into depression. The desire for personal interaction, today, is so prevalent in our society that literally billions of dollars are spent to find it. And thousands of businesses, organizations, and churches are established to fulfill the need.

It's unfortunate, however, that millions of Americans live out their daily lives in a state of perpetual loneliness, even though they have the freedom and resources at their fingertips to overcome it. It's indeed disturbing that lonely people neglect to, or no longer know how to, seek personal interaction. Even more disturbing is that many lonely American are deprived of the freedom to seek relief.

People who have remained lonesome for years on end often lose touch with the wherewithal to overcome their pain. Those unfortunate people also sometimes forget what it was like to be happy and no longer understand what they have lost. Similar are those people who have lost their freedom to seek companionship. They, in many cases, not only forget the joy of interacting with caring people, but they also lose the desire for the freedom to seek it.

Many American prisoners today suffer a fear of the freedom that they no longer understand. They have spent so many years in a state of confinement that they dread their ensuing date of release. Ironically, thousands of prisoners covet the dream of being released so much that they feel that release itself actually robs them of their years long dream. For many prisoners, the approach of the upcoming release date has caused extreme anxiety-which has also resulted in physical illness in a number of cases.

Recent observations, by incarcerated Americans, have revealed a dividing line between prisoners who freely embrace their release and those who fear it. That line is struck as a sharp division between prisoners who enjoy personal interaction with people on the outside and those who do not. Prisoners who will suffer anxiety, when their date approaches, are easy to identify. They are the ones who are infrequently called to a visit, the ones who infrequently stand in line to use the phone, or who never receive a personal letter.

The loss of even the negative personal interaction, suffered in the worst of prisons, is a contributing factor to the separation anxiety that departing prisoners feel upon release. Once prisoners are released from prison, they are prohibited by law to maintain contact with old friends from prison, no matter whether they, too, are released or still confined. Therefore, prisoners who were unable to make friends with people on the outside, are released to total loneliness. As such, prisoners confined by law are no different, than those people who are imprisoned by the walls of their own lonely home.

In the current day and age neither our prisoners nor the lonely in our communities have to suffer. In recent years technology has become so advanced that lonely people in our communities can reach inside of a prison, via email, and touch people just like themselves. What often goes unnoticed is that when two lonely people meet, they are no longer alone. Through frequent communications two lonely people often discover that their cloud of despair relents to rays of hope that can warm the coldest of hearts.

Due to growing awareness, of much needed prison reform, people from all walks of life are called to interact with prisoners. As of December 21, 2018, a new law Called the First Step Act has made provisions for faith-based groups and other Americans to get personally involved. Those who want to be a part of this movement can take advantage of web-based pen pal services, that have features that allow communication with prisoners that don't require the sharing of a physical address. And with more and more prisoners using email services like JPay and Corrlinks (inmate email systems) it is easier than ever to begin a pen pal friendship and get to know a lonely American prisoner before sharing a physical address (if ever). The email feature, on many sites, provides such a high level of security that most current pen pals are not even concerned about the crimes the prisoners may have been accused of.

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

May 26, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

May 26, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Kentucky gov's race stirs clash over casino suicide claims

May 26, 2020

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Entering the final days of Kentucky's bitter race for governor, Republican incumbent Matt Bevin exposed himself to a new attack by flatly denying his recorded claim that suicides happen nightly in casinos. Telling a debate audience Saturday night that the truth matters, Bevin challenged his opponent to produce a tape proving his denial wrong. Democrat Andy Beshear offered up the audiotape Sunday. The televised exchange turned Bevin's summer radio interview on WKDZ into a talking point for Democrats heading into the last full week of campaigning in the close gubernatorial contest. In the interview, Bevin claimed, without...

May 26, 2020

NEW YORK — The Senate's top Democrat is calling on the Food and Drug Administration to examine a report that found dozens of baby food products contaminated with lead and other metals. Sen.
