Death Row prisoners participating in the project "Connect Death Row" (www.connectdeathrow.org) speak about various subjects - some speak about their children:


Micha'el (55), Florida: I wonder if my daughter dreams of me

Quote: "A daughter was born to me in 1986. A daughter I've not met nore even know her name. I have taken to calling her Cylia. I dream of her. She doesn't have a face... it's being blurred, unknown, unknowable. I wonder if she dreams of me... only knowing me as 'unknown'. That's my name on her birth certificate. Two unknowns to each other."


Polo (28), Texas: The love on the other side of the glass

Quote: "I can still remember the first day when I saw my little son at visitation. He was so small that he couldn't open his eyes all the way yet. I wished I could have reached out to touch and hold him, but it's always a glass that separates us. ... It's sad that we have never been able to touch each other or give each other a hug."
