This guest blog post is by Michael Cluff, one of the pen pals with CFI's Freethought Books Project. The Freethought Books Project provides donations of freethought and secular literature to inmates. We also have a pen pal program that matches up freethinking volunteer pen pals with inmates looking for a connection with someone who shares their worldview.

"I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Living in the hopeless, hungry side of town.
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
but still is there because he's a victim of the times."

- Johnny Cash, "The Man in Black."

I decided to become a pen pal with the Freethought Books Project because I've always enjoyed writing and receiving letters. It is a dying art that I would like to keep alive as long as possible. It has always been important to me to find people who have a different world view and I'm always looking learn something new.
