Colorful “star”-shaped lanterns of varying sizes made by inmates were unveiled in a program Sunday at the Albay provincial jail compound. The hand-made products were offered for sale to visitors and patrons, as Sunday is a regular visitation day for families, relatives and friends of detainees.
Part of the program was a mass celebrated by Catholic priests and seminarians of Mater Salutis Seminary from Sipi, Daraga town.
It was followed by a drama presentation “Kwadradong Buhay” (Square Life) from students of the colleges of arts & letters (CAL), and, speech & theater arts (STA) of the Bicol University (BU). The story tackles the touchy theme on the beginnings and reasons why an inmate finds himself inside the four corners of a prison cell, hence the square(d) life. The drama production is a prerequisite and part of a thesis presentation and defense of students of the colleges.
After the program the BU STA department head, thesis advisers, panel members of (thesis) defense, joined the inmates and their families in a picnic lunch offered by the students. It was their way of sharing an early Christmas cheer.
