Default Old, but new

I have been kicking around here for a couple of years because my son, who died in 2011, was a strong opponent of the death penalty. I worked in a state prison as a nurse for a few days and I was disgusted by the level of care the inmates were given. I had to quit because I knew I couldn't live with myself.

Now, my nephew is going to be headed to prison. No trial yet, but he has a record and the evidence is pretty clear. He was indicted recently.

So here I am, ladies and gentlemen. I am sad to be joining the club.

I am sorry that you are having to watch your nephew go through this again, but I am glad you are back. Just hang in there, I know this has got to be hard but you've come to the right place.

Please NurseRatched, ("Ladies & Gentlemen") there is NO shame here. What strikes me is your ability to speak honestly.
However, be careful of how much you expose on the board.

Look... I personally know & understand the challenges you face. But talk with the PTO community here who knows.
PTO is filled with understanding and will always be here.
You'll be OK.

P.S. This is NO club, we are a Family.
JMOpinion,
Cactus~

Apparently, because my family has not had enough...another nephew has just been indicted for a completely different offense. He will be deported after his sentence if found guilty. Also, my niece has thrown him out because of the nature of the alleged crime.

I feel like my family is falling apart.

Oh man, that totally stinks. I have no words but I am saying a prayer for you and yours.

Cactus,
Just curious if you could elaborate on that?
