Gershon Shepherd #R55463

Picture 1 of 1

Hello, my name is Gershon, and I’m very nervous and anxious about joining WriteAPrisoner. I’ve been thinking about this for a while now, and my mind has been racing back and forth about what to say. I know that I don’t have any magical words to make you want to write to me. But I’ll just put my fears aside and allow myself to be vulnerable to all that read this and say, “I’m alone and in need of a friend.” Someone who’s willing to share any part of her day with me, to just help me get through some hard days. Having someone to write and just talk to would do wonders for me. Time is free, but it’s priceless to me, especially if someone can reach out to me and share their time. Please feel free to write and hopefully I can bring a smile to your face and laughter to your life.

Sincerely,

Gershon

P.S: We have GTL ConnectNetwork, so contact me through there or snail mail!
