My heart and empathy goes out to the families that have lost loved ones in these uncertain time of Covid-19. As we approach the first peak of this deadly pandemic, I ask that everyone continue the social distancing and hygiene cleanliness.
While times aren’t normal for you, they are even worse for us in prison in many ways. Because of the mass numbers and lack of space, it is impossible to keep a safe distance. The B.O.P. has issued a lockdown until this is over. Although the B.O.P. didn’t report how many positive inmate cases, on April 9th there were 8 recorded deaths.
Also for those of us that self-report through prison jobs, there are a lack of finances to provide the necessary antibacterial soap and other items to safeguard our health and keep our bodies, bed linen and garments infection free. In some prospective, “I feel like a sitting duck”. I have been incarcerated since 2011 and this is the worst I have experienced. With my release date finally near and all of the time and effort I put into rebuilding myself, “I want to live to experience liberation”.
I humbly ask that if there is any self-help information on the WriteAPrisoner site that will help me achieve “financial freedom”, once I’m released, please send it.
Shout out to Write A Prisoner for allowing me to express myself on their platform.
Take care and stay safe.
