Domestic Violence is being swept under the rug until elections come around then all of a sudden it’s in the minds of the judges and D.A. for a minute but not really genuine enough momentum. Thus, being swept under the rug again. I know for a fact Domestic Violence is just as brutal and sick as any other abuse, if not more. Domestic Violence can contain all three elements; sexual, mental and physical abuse, financial as well. It causes women to be co-dependent/brainwashed to the point they don’t even know they’re being controlled by a controller who doesn’t even know that he’s controlling them. Both of them are sick and if it’s not stopped, both will suffer major consequences by living in a toxic relationship.
S.D.V.S.T.S. is a logo anybody can use to remember that sometimes we have to be the voice of our loved ones and friends. What lengths will you go to, to save your daughters, sisters and mom’s life. Hashtag this, Facebook it, spread the word to the world. Father’s don’t be afraid, mothers don’t be scared and brothers grab your sister’s hand, all of us have to stand.
Stop Domestic Violence Stop The Silence

To whoever has taken time out of there day to log on to my blog let me first say thank you. Now also let me say that you have picked the right man and let me explain why I say this. I am a true believer that two people writing to each other can make so many things happen with just a pen and paper. You see I am a very confident man but not cocky or conceited by no means. I am a man who believes in sincerity and being honest. I also am very respectful, and I do believe that everyone deserves a chance in life. So, I ask you, do you believe in giving chances? I would not be a waste of your time this you can believe. You see two people corresponding with each other can learn so much from one another such as likes, dislikes, expectations, and ambitions and so much more if only given the chance. I am not a judgmental man and I would hope that you would not be as well. We all make mistakes in life and I can honestly say I am learning from mine. So how about it, do you want to take some more time out of your day and write to me and get to know about me? Personally, I would say take the chance and then later on you will see that the chance and your time you invested was well worth it. I’ll be waiting.
Hi there, I’m writing again to hopefully reach out there and meet someone who wants to meet someone to share some time with. I haven’t met the person that I hoped to find from this. I’m just looking for someone who wants to talk and get to know each other. It would be great to find someone who might be as excited to hear from me as I am to hear from them. I am a good listener and would like to be there for you as much as you would be there for me. I don’t have any age or body type that I am looking for. I just want someone who is real and open to meeting someone new and giving them a chance. I’m very open minded, so tell me about yourself. I don’t want this to be all about me. I know there is someone out there whose day I can brighten and could brighten my day. I guess it would be cool to meet someone Semi-social, but I am open to talk to anyone from anywhere.
I like to write and JPay too, I will always be sure to respond as quickly as I hear from you. You can ask me anything and I’ll be sure to answer. It would be great if you could include a picture and tell me some about yourself, I will have more pictures soon.
OK, I will look forward to hearing from you!

Ask yourself, when’s the last time you allowed yourself to sit down, get attached to a book or movie? Opened up and lived it as you experienced it? Allowed your emotions to come out and feel? Every week I try to read a couple books that will get my emotions involved. You may become suspicious, cautious, about my intentions. Wondering why would I want to write to a complete stranger? I’m interested in really getting to know someone to make a difference in their life when they are down and need it most. I want to believe that most people are inherently good. Sometimes get caught up in unfortunate circumstances. I need to feel like I matter and impacting someone’s life in a meaningful way. I also believe that you have the capacity to impact my life in meaningful ways.
Over the years it’s been learning experiences to understand and learn emotions. I’m a prisoner to myself for so long, I had to relearn them. In order to protect myself I closed off everything to survive. I’m tired of just surviving. I’m ready to live, if you take anything from this please believe the following. You’re a person who’s destined to find love, happiness, success and anything else you desire. You matter, will achieve great things; never allow anybody to make you feel or think otherwise. Persevere. Be resilient. I like to think of my life and look back be remembered not for the one great deed I accomplished but for the many lives I’ve impacted with love that shows many ripples throughout my existence. This is my therapy to drown out all my pain, hurt, with compassion, goodness to others. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Forgive, smile, laugh, love. All gave some, some gave all! When we perceive things differently inside our outer perception changes.

I know what loneliness feels like. I deserve human connection as much as anyone else. There’s nothing worse than feeling forgotten, unloved and insignificant. No human should feel that way. Love, compassion, kindness are powerful to heal wounds. Having someone to take the journey with is what makes life worthwhile. I desire that more than anything. Having fun laughing, appreciating small things in life is what I want. I don’t care about money, titles or superficial objects. I want to look back at life when I’m on my deathbed knowing I was loved and I gave love, that defines success to me. I’m not the type that’s blinded by physical appearance, certain circumstances can be blessings in disguise. It forces us to take life slow, really see a person’s essence.
I look for strong values, honesty, trust, dedication, loyalty; without those there’s no foundation for any type of relationship. I’m far from perfect. I feel closer to people when they aren’t afraid to expose their hopes, dreams, passions, fears, flaws, emotions, vulnerabilities. Why wear a mask? Masks eventually break! So many people get into trouble these days; societies made it a weakness to show emotions and viewing people in delicate states of emotions unheard of. If society would shed tears it would become less angry and more humble. Our circumstances can change in a moment. Why not find happiness in other people’s happiness?
Pay it forward, instead of enjoying that ice cream or meal, find someone you can share it with so that you enjoy it through them. In return you plant a seed that’s called empathy which allows humanity to learn compassion for others.
I enjoy good movies, reading good books that bring out emotions. I enjoy crying at happy times, sad times, when I’m involved in either one.
Some of the things we do in life lead us astray. Sometimes we become down. But by hearing your words we become closer, more near, to what we long for. We find people who may not know us but care and that to me means more than you know. By reading this you’ve shown more than you know.
We constantly search for someone to connect with on another level beyond mere social normitys. The essence of it all is at a fundamental basic, pen and paper. But I find beauty in words, beauty in the fact people care. Though I may be lost, there’s hope. No matter how slim, there is a piece. You are my hope, something that releases me from these walls, someone to grow close to.
To me, you are my hope!
And that can either make someone grand or sheltered in abysmal darkness, a darkness we’ve all come to know. Would you be my light against what shines? I suppose we shall see.

It would all be too simple. If we could solve everything. Just by saying, love is the answer to everything. That’s just “talk”. Eventually, I’m looking for more than casual conversation from you. More than just company…Someone to build with, who understands growth. I’ve been in the jungle my whole life. I don’t need someone who’s afraid of obstacles.

What A Name
I believe everybody has a nickname or pet name. A name that may mean something special to them. My birth name is Henry; family calls me Lenny. The name Lenny also has something to do with my great grandmother – who has since died – and the stock market crash in 1929…Something like that. Anyway, Lenny, is an attractive name to women, it even came up during my trial while I was on the stand being questioned by the prosecutor.
In here, they call me Elvis. Don’t want to attract any girls in here. Know what I mean? I used to spell my name H-E-N-R-Y-9. The number 9 was silent, I was named after my grandfather Heinrich Luft (Henry) the son of my great grandmother and he was called “Henny” by my grandmother. My grandmother loved John Steinbeck and for some reason started calling me Lenny after, I believe, Steinbeck’s fictional character, “Of Mice and Men”. I never had a mouse in my pocket or pet mice, so I can only imagine why “Nannie” would call me Lenny. She had a Henny and a Lenny.
I always wanted a tough name. Machinegun Kelly, Scarface, Two Fingers Tony. What I learned is, the name doesn’t make you tough. I once saw a guy named Cindy smash a guy named Rock.
As far as being attractive, well, let’s just say my brother did the best he could. Not to mention a cool moniker like Lenny will always help…Oh, Henry is cool too.

I need you to understand that your e-mails take time to get to me…Sometimes days at a time. It is not instant…If you remove yourself, how will you know if I tried to respond to you? Sometimes things happen in here where I may not be able to reach right back, things like the facility going on lockdown or the system going down…If you contact me PLEASE be patient…My whole purpose for creating this profile is to connect with you.

Hello, I am writing to add to my blog. I’ve had some changes and will not be released until July 2019. I really had high hopes of parole this year. They say good does come with bad so maybe before next July I‘ll find someone to get to know. A person I can talk about everyday life and goals with. I’ve learned a lot from my prison experience and know that I’ve made past mistakes. I am a very outgoing country guy. Anything to do with the outdoors is fun. I get to work outside of prison being a minimum level let’s us get more freedom.
I am single, no kids and free to roam anywhere. I’d really like to take my interest in real estate and move from Kentucky. I am young and not tied down here. More school is an option I plan to follow to help reach my dreams. Really, I hope I am not stereotyped by people who have set a bad example for men in the struggle of incarceration; not all of us are bad people. I am worthy of good friendship. So please don’t let a bad experience let you lose out on a lifetime of friendship! It’s your choice, so write a written letter or you can make direct contact at JPay email at jpay.com. I hope you choose to reach out soon. Take care.
