It is a blessing to be a part of a family. No matter the differences that might exist, the bond uniting the members of a family is, most of the time, unbreakable. Once you are born into the family, then you are there for life; you cannot exchange family. If there is a time when families get together to celebrate their uniqueness, then this has to be during the festive season. During this season is when you get the opportunity to catch up with the rest of the family, share your successes and failures throughout the year, and find a friendly shoulder to lean on.
But what about an incarcerated family member? Once you are in prison, your freedom to travel to see your family during the festive season is no longer there. Last Christmas I was in jail, and this was my story then. It was such a terrible feeling to be separated from my family during that time of festivities. It was even worse to be all alone in a cold prison cell. I will forever be thankful to Securus for their new video visitation technology, which allowed me to facetime with my entire family even behind bars.
It was such a joy to connect with the whole family in real time and to have a feel of the outside world. The audio/video communication technology by Securus has significantly improved the lives of both inmates and their families. I have a little child, and the idea of her visiting me in the depressing prison environment was detesting. The video visitation technology, therefore, came as a major blessing to me. I finally had the opportunity to chat with my baby in an ideal environment, something that brought me so much joy.
I am thankful for the gift of freedom this festive season. All the same, I know that the situation will be much better for the inmates thanks to Securus Technologies. The video visitation technology has significantly improved the quality of visits for the prisoners by their loved ones. No one wants to meet with their family in the gloomy prison facilities, especially not during the Christmas season when the atmosphere is expected to be jolly and cheerful.
The technology is used, and it is working wonders for the inmates. A perfect example of the video visitation technology in use is a video on YouTube titled, ‘Securus Family Communication during Xmas.
