Advances in modern technology have given us endless opportunities to communicate with one another. Gone are the days of sitting at home, waiting for your telephone to ring. Text messages have taken the place of hand-written letters and today’s youth have never even seen a telephone booth.
Securus Technologies is an information technology corporation that utilizes technological breakthroughs to allow inmates to communicate with their families. The company’s latest video, Securus Family Communications During Christmas, showcases the touching moment when a father gets to witness the joy on his son’s face on Christmas morning, even though he’s incarcerated.
The video begins with the phrase “Be there when it’s impossible to be”.Being away from your loved ones during the holidays is incredibly difficult. Being incarcerated, sometimes hours away from your family, is not only hard on the inmate, but also on the inmate’s family. Thanks to Securus Technologies, children across the country won’t have to remember this Christmas as the Christmas that Mommy or Daddy had to miss. Instead, little ones will have an extra gift on Christmas morning, the chance to see their loved ones.
At the end of the video, it says “Be a part of the important moments“. I can’t imagine having to miss the most precious moments in my family’s lives. Again, thanks to Securus Technologies, inmates no longer have to miss holidays, birthdays, weddings, or the birth of their child. Video visitations are conveniently scheduled in advance, so family members no longer have to suffer through long commutes and even longer lines. The only thing required to take part in video visitation is a computer with a webcam that’s connected to the internet.
