“We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over. So in a series of kindness there is at least one which makes the heart run over…”

It is with this quote that I find it in myself to reach out to you today. It is my hope that you'd reach out back to me, and from there we can form a friendship. Greetings to you. My name is Lamont Reese and I'm 26 years old. It is very hard to reach out from such a place as Death Row, but I do feel that not everyone wishes death upon me.

As I am forced to sit here in this sometimes cold and very unforgiving place, I found that it's nothing like having a good friend you can count on through the roughest of times, to let you know you're not alone. Nor are you forgotten. It really is the greatest effect at times.

I hope that something inspires you to reach out to me, if not for anything, but to let me know you feel all life has a purpose. With that, I ask that to all that read my words, please find it in you to reach out back to me, or even another guy here on the row.

Believe me, any form of kindness from you to make me or anyone at his last ends a part of your life, can make a world of difference to you and me. Just give it a chance. I ask that you please smile for me, because a smile to me is a form of hope that better days will soon come (smile!)

Peace and Blessings,
