We search for our purpose but in the world we create our own way that shapes the future but we also blind ourselves to the truth that’s right before our eyes. I’ve been in search of a friend all throughout life that I can share everything with. In all honesty we all look for our mate throughout life but in truth all you want is to be accepted. For me I realized that I want more than what shows on the outside, it’s only the inside that’s real.
If it’s challenges that worry you, know there aint no one on earth been left unscarred through which their spirit was tested. Honestly I hope and pray one day I can find a woman who believes in love, harmony and the stepping stones that are called Destiny. Everything that was created is beautiful! It’s Beautiful! But we create illusions in our mind that make every person, animal, subject dissatisfied in our mind, but in truth we wish to understand.
I believe we all do, only when we approve. You’re going to come across people in your life who say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions they show in the future and present that you should get to know because some make mistakes, some never change; only way to know a person is through time.

Greetings All, allow me to bring you up to date on what I have been up to. I finished my Associate’s Degree last year. I’m now working towards a Bachelor’s degree. On October 10th, Hurricane Michael hit the Florida Panhandle, the prison took so much damage we had to be evacuated in the middle of the night. I was moved to Yazoo City, Mississippi. Looks like this will be our temporary home till early 2020. Then most likely back to Florida to finish my sentence.
In my last blog post I made reference to President Trump, A.K.A. the “Rump”. Some took this to be that I was a fan of Mr. Rump. Not so, I respect the office don’t get me wrong, but I have spent the last 20 years of my life sitting on the sidelines and well, it does give a person time to watch and learn.
I guess my short reply is, no I’m not a fan of President Trump. I feel he’s hurting us a great deal and it will take Years to recover. But I’m just on the sidelines, you’re the one out there playing the real game.
Overall I feel my life is great. My recovery is going good, I’m moving forward. I’m counting the days till my release. I’m working diligently and hope to re-enter society as a productive member. I wish you all the best. Play safe, be good and hope to hear from you soon.
If you sent me a letter recently and it was returned to you or I didn’t write you back yet, it is because I have been transferred to another facility and I never received it. I was in transit from January 7th. to 17th. and received no mail. Also, I don’t think any mail I missed that was sent to FCI Big Springs or the OKC Transfer Center during that time or even now, will follow me to my new prison. So please, please resend or write me again at my new address.

FCI Three Rivers
PO Box 4200 – Live Oak A
Three Rivers, TX 78071
Also, I can only receive white envelopes, white or lined paper, up to 25 pictures at once, no cards, glitter, or stickers, etc…..
I will add a new photo to my profile every month! Write me soon. (smile)
And thank you for writing me. Writing good letters is a lost art form! The old fashioned way is so much better. Smart phones, texting, Snap Chat, and Facebook are definitely useful. But there is something about taking the time to write your thoughts down on paper that is deeper and more meaningful. (Smile)
A good letter should be kept forever and reread.
Love and peace.

Hi, my name is Erik, I want to take this opportunity to share my gratitude and appreciation for the huge support Epicenter has shown to me and others in my type of situation. I am a "Second Looker", for those unfamiliar with this term, it's a name for us who are wishing for a second chance in life, those of us who started serving extreme sentences before we turned 18 years old. I myself was 15 years old at the time.
I have been in prison for almost 17 years serving a life sentence. I am 31 years old now, an adult with a whole different perspective about life, family and friends. I have always maintained a strong feeling that this was not gonna be it for me. And that hope is finally close. The Second Look House Bill, if passed this year, will allow men like me to be eligible for parole after completing 20 years.
To know that I have an opportunity to be home in 3 years and be able to repay my family for everything they have done for me, it's a feeling beyond words. To have a second chance at life and show society that a person can really change at life and be a better person even after growing up in a negative environment, is what I look forward to.
Thanks to everyone for supporting this bill, it is deeply appreciated.
If you would like to know more about me and my story, please contact me.
A better life on this planet, learning a lesson and being true to God.
I'm looking for friends all over the country/all around the globe. Where are you???
I would L.O.V.E. to hear from you and exchange photos, letters, poems, ideas. If you're reading this blog right now, then please don't hesitate to reach out and touch me with a letter. I promise to respond.... immideiatly. Do no by shy, just write and say hi!
And I'll take it from there.
I hope to hear from you soon!
F.Y.I. Currently incarcerated in the Lumberton NC area. Have been down 7 1/2 years. Could possibly be released as early as 2-14-20
I’m writing my first blog with hopes to meet more people. When I first signed up to WriteAPrisoner I had problems with Jpay. Since then my login problems have been resolved. So if you messaged me before and did not get a response, I apologize. I can reassure you it won’t happen again.
I have met people from all around the world and made some strong connections. I look forward to meeting more people because writing letters is a good way to spend my time.
This past month I have spent my days reading, working out, and playing cards. The books I have read are “The Name Of The Wind” and “The Wise Man’s Fear”. I absolutely love the story and hope a 3rd book comes out soon. When I’m not reading in my cell I go outside and workout. Every day I workout very hard, usually focusing on weight-lifting. Lately I have been mixing running with my workouts. I really enjoy running because it helps me burn up energy so I can sleep at night. I hope with diet and exercise I can achieve my goal of having a 6 pack before the year is over.
Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon.
I am down to my “last year finally”! Feb. 19, 2020. It’s been a very long journey, but I’ve stayed strong mentally, gained the tools to be successful when I do get out. I’m not sure exactly where my future leads because no one has looked me up yet lol. But I’ve got plans if worst case, to go back to West Virginia. I need all of the guidance and positivity I can find around me. If anyone got anything useful for me plz hit me up through Jpay.com and email me.
I understand relationships are hard and difficult under these circumstances, but with under a year left I think isn’t that hard. I’m very loyal, attractive and built and skilled in all the right places. I’ve had problems with past relationships because of the amount of time I’ve had. It would be nice to find someone to get out to and start from scratch and build a life, possibly a family with. My crazy days are over. I’m ready to do things different. I don’t do drugs and never will. I’m not much into people who do hard drugs. If you single and open to starting something new, get at me on Jpay. My info is Adam Ruthers – 724397.
I have 11 months from the time I wrote this when contacting me. Please send a picture.
PS Send a prepaid reply with your letter

September 16th 2018,
Year by year, day by day, I smile but deep down inside I’m far from happy. But I accept my life, my fate and my trials that God has set forward for me. When I understood that this is part of God’s plan it lifted the burden from my conscious and helped me to realize that everything is “Meant to be”, with wisdom and blessings as long as I understood that is all from God. This thought alone is what gave me strength and power within my own self to grow and become the man I am today. I’m not perfect but I’m happy about who I am and who I want to become. I’m excited that soon this will be over, back to life, back to society, back to family and finally back to me!
So year by year, day by day, these hopes and these hobbies and these trials and these miseries are all endured and overcome by the one thought and feeling that “I’m almost there”, “I’m almost home”. I just stay strong, stay positive, stay humble and stay focused. It’s much easier said than done, but outcomes can become much different when you do what’s opposite.
I hope that this touches you as it did for me when I wrote it and that it reaches some of ya’ll hearts to reach for mine so together we can reach forever. I hope to hear from you soon. Write me at the address below or email www.connectnetwork.com.

Hey Friend! I’m writing to give you an update on my status/location. I’m no longer in Virginia nor am I in solitary anymore. I’m now at Washington State Prison in population and now you can contact me on JPAY, my DOC# 412805, when you type in my info it’s going to say Interstate Compact and you click on that and sign up on my JPAY because I know people hate writing letters and as I’ve said in my ad, I’m looking forward to hearing from and getting to know you and maybe one day become a friend.
I have 3 years and some change left. I’m willing to correspond with overseas pen pals and I’m open to see what life has to offer in other States or countries if the opportunity presents. Well friends or should I say potential friends, hope to hear from you soon!!
P.S. We also can get Videogram messages and Video visits.
