This loss of income can be extremely damaging to

The article talks about the various ways on how states can allow families to see their loved ones who are incarcerated. One of the main reasons why someone were not able to see their loved one or significant other is because of how far the prison or jail is placed. Every family member is not going to have the chance to go for a visit and this is the cause of families not having the opportunity to connect with them while being incarcerated. There are many people who are incarcerated and would rather be at home with their family. The only thing that they need to do is realize that someone is there to help them get in the community, back with their family.

Kurt Vonnegut’s striking style left a undeniable mark on mid twentieth century literature. By blending science fiction tropes with impactful social commentary and unorthodox humor he was able to use his particular voice to speak on a wide variety of real topics. Few of his novels have more to say than 1963’s Cat’s Cradle, ostensibly a story about a fantastical invention and its horrifying consequences.
