Thanks for the article I believe I am going to print it out and mail it to the warden. These constant lockdowns are making matters worse and continue to create a worse environment for our loved ones it ridiculous. They need to find a balance otherwise I fear it's not going to change. Actually, I hope each and everyone of us would do the same as we are stronger in numbers and it reflects that we are all looking at options, just a thought.

I really hate these lockdowns myself and the only way I can contact my friend for now is by email since school has been draining me out lately but I'm not giving up since I will be done next year when I complete 4 classes and receive my 2nd Associate of Applied Science degree. But I know I'll hear from him soon whenever the lockdown is over but he's always in my prayers daily.

If anybody wants to, you're more than welcome to give me encouragement. I have spring break next week by the way and I'm planning on being away from the computer if possible. It's hard being in school and focusing on myself but I'm doing my best. I'll be praying for your loved ones as well and please say a prayer for me as well that I won't give up.

Not trying to argue but I have emails from my love the whole month of December including on Christmas and following through January until the lockdown in January. Only a couple days in December he didnít email me. Since mine has been here Iím having to say the same thing as blacks queen 4 to 6 weeks worth of lockdowns. And my guy has been here for a little while now.

The article was very informative to me and I’m definitely planning to print it out. It just reminded me of other things they’re not having access to while on lockdown that I had forgotten about . I got a letter from my man today and he said they’re hearing about a month of lockdown!! Omg!! Only reason I’m not crazy upset is because he’s getting out in April. Thank God!!

When in April? Mine gets out in April too it seems like at this point by the time lockdown ends it will be a few weeks before my love walks away from this place for good.

I liked the article that wa posted, though its unfortunate that was in a Canadian prison the system here doesnt give a rats ass how they treat our loved ones. There have been cases of inmates put in solitary and left there for years over a fight. Knowing that it does damage to them psychologically. Our prison system is one of the worst in the world.
You know what the US is #1 in? Prison rates and school shootings. Thats what we're known for.
Proud to be an American my ass
