 A true friend is the greatest of all blessings, and that which we take the least care of all to acquire.” Francios de la Rochefoucauld

 Let me be your friend

Friendship is something that I take very serious. To me a friend is someone who is there to listen when most of all you need someone to listen. A friend is there when no one else is there, knowing what to do. A friendship is life´s most precious gift, when it is built on trust, loyalty and honesty.

Since I have been here I have not had the chance to build great friendships, and this is the purpose of this ad. I hope it is in some one´s heart to give me the chance to befriend them through letter writing.

I´m 31 years old; in November 2013 I will be here nine years with no contact from my family. I´m an author, recently my latest book was published, and I am working on a fictional novel. I write poetry and I am an artist. I guess you can say I´m not the type of person who allows a situation to define him. I want to be better than my situation and do great things.

I am specifically looking for honesty and friendship in any one who writes. If that person is you then please don’t hesitate to write. I don’t write a lot of people and could use your companionship. Thank you, and I hope you have it in your heart to write me soon.

I´m in need of a friend

I´ve been on death row for almost 20 years. In that time I´ve seen many people come, and after a while they leave, strapped to a gurney so their hearts can be stopped by poisonous drugs. During this time I´ve lost friends, family and foes. Amongst it all I stand in the midst of a dungeon, fighting to live!!! Thankfully I´m still at the beginning of my appeals, not facing an execution date.

I´m about learning and educating through friendships. People like you who read this ad have educated me on cultures from through out the world, the beauty of life and sadness of death. More importantly though I´ve learned there is a lot of beauty within the other cultures. Pen friends have been an amazing experience for me. It has allowed me to continue to strive in the midst of the darkness that is Texas death row.

I am seeking someone who has it in them to befriend someone on death row. I only look for someone who is serious about corresponding as I am. I can promise you that you will have someone who is there to listen with an open mind and compassionate heart. I´m offering true friendship.

I believe when honored, cultivated and cherished, friendship is the one thing that allows us to survive this chaotic world. I hope after reading this you´re willing to let me be there for you. Let me be your friend.

Please do not hesitate to write me, I will reply, and more importantly I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Paul

If you´re searching for a friend, search no further because I think I can fill the void (smile). That´s right. I would love to get to know you and build a friendship with you. Let me start this ad with telling you I only look for friendship though. I´m married and blessed to have my wife in my life. Just to be sure it´s known. I´m not looking for romance.

I spend my time focusing on proving my innocence, exercising, reading, writing (hope to publish a book soon), and listening to music.
Despite my being here I would like to be a friend to you. I´m a good listener and I give good advice…you´re welcome to be the judge of that though (smile). I think that´s important in having a friend. Even if the advice is not on point a lot of times it´s good to have that ear if need be.
I´m not specific who writes. Man or woman – just to be serious about wanting and being a friend is my one and only request.
Though missing a few this and that´s, I hope that you see most of all I seek a friend. If that´s you, I hope to hear from you soon.

I believe in the strength of the struggle. And the strength of the struggle lie in many individuals ability to come together for a common goal and aim a common belief. That together we can make the impossible possible. For me, the possible is almost a reality. That reality being my freedom from Texas Death Row. But, I am not there yet. That is why I am still reaching out and asking that people who believe in the strength of the struggle join me in my fight to attain my freedom from this injustice I am under, and also to help join in the fight to end the death penalty wherever it may be applied by a state, country or nation. I welcome all letters. Always, in strength and in spirit! Tony

Dexter Johnson (*1988)

My name is Dexter and I’m hoping with this ad you’ll find it in your heart to give me a few minutes of your precious time today and many other days to come.

Unfortunately I’ve been on Texas Death Row since the age of 19 and it has been trying because I don’t belong here and because of the support I don’t have. I am fighting everyday for my life in the state that’s known for having the highest execution rate! Being here is very disheartening because being poor you are given a court appointed attorney who is the attorney for many others so your attorney cannot put all of his energy into just your case. Texas officials are pretending to give us a fair appeals but in reality they are itching to commit premeditated murder which they don’t see anything wrong with!

While in this dark place thoughts of my little angel help me hold on to my sanity. My daughter who is the light of my life was born September 2005, 2 ½ months prematurely. Every day I was in the hospital holding her and praying that she survives. Now every time she sees me she puts her hand on the glass and begs me to stay strong and keep fighting because she needs me! Ever since she was born I’ve done my best to provide for her and even today with me in this situation that’s still my goal.

I am looking for a true friend that is willing to get to know me, the true me and who understands the seriousness of my situation and who is willing to remain by my side to help me through it. I pray you are that true friend! Thank you for your precious time. Sincerely,  Dexter

Charles Douglas Raby (*1970)

If you are looking for a sincere friendship, so am I. I am looking for a true friend, anyone who is in it for the long haul, because I may just be here forever. I have been locked up a very long time, since October 18, 1992. Prison is a very lonely place. Outside contact helps a lot. I am in a lock up type housing, stuck in a single man cell 22 hours a day. I was born in 1970 and I am a full blooded Texan from Houston. I love to read and learn new things, I like to write, I love animals, mostly horses and dogs. Being from Texas, I grew up with riding horses, and I truly miss it. I loved the outdoor life. Like I said, l love learning new things. It keeps my mind active. I am interested in medical history, the human body, law, space and wildlife.  So if you have something you can teach me, I am eager to learn. Again, not to be picky, but only sincere, loyal and mature people need apply. If you do, then tell me about yourself. Any gender, race or religion is more than welcome. I thank you for taking the time to read my ad. I hope to hear from you. Y’all take care. Sincerely,  Charles

Imagine a field of beautiful flowers, pick one. Smell its fragrance. Visualize a seed that never grows to be a flower. One devoid of its potential. Beginning never reaching its ending. The story of my life…it’s my sad, sad song.

Who am I… I tell you and you forget. I show you and you remember. I involve you and you understand.

Choosing to believe that there’s sunshine after rain. With time I learn to accept my faults, I’m human. I made a costly mistake. So. Before the start of something sincere, there should be genuine reconciliation, so I ask that you, please forgive me for my hurtful actions. I deeply apologize.

If there’s any with a heart. I truly embrace your kindness. I ask that, you get to know me. As I with you. Eight years on Death Row. Here. Loneliness eats at a man’s soul like cancer. Living in such a somber environment is challenging but I endure. I’m 45. Young at heart. Down to earth. Open minded. Understanding.  Looking for a team player, to help me. Trust takes time. I’m fair.

Finish writing a thriller. Working on an urban novel. Exercise…a lot…in good shape. Read fiction…others.  Need a true friend. Be yourself, and talk about whatever. Willing to share interest, if you’re open and understanding. I’m not a liar. Won’t honor one.

I respect real. Will go out of my way for someone sincere. Give my last to who keeps their word with me. Searching ways to feel alive instead of just existing in a mental war, I fight with new goals hoping, to reach, the mind of someone sincere. Tough in the heart and soul, of a friend that’s real. Sharing your precious time, assistance, support, guidance, reliability and truth.  Sincerely

Cortne Robinson (1990)
 If I were lucky…
I would believe in fate. I would believe that every mistake I made represents potential for growth. An invitation to elevate. I would believe that it was necessary for my path to take a break in order for me to concentrate on today.
I would believe in the future.
If I were lucky, I wouldn’t need love to believe in the reality of these thoughts with optimism. In fact, if I were lucky, I probably wouldn’t dwell too long on these thoughts or even have a wonder about them. But if I do find love, someone will find me. Then I would believe in fate. I’ve decided to use this website to release my desire for true friendship into the atmosphere. The future holds the answer to my request.
Peace, Cortne
