This letter was written by a person incarcerated at High Desert.
I keep in contact with family through phone calls and letters. Though it’s hard, I can’t hug them or see them. But that’s the consequence of sin. I’m truly grateful for all the love and support they’ve been showing me since day one of my calamity.
As I look around in my cell, I can honestly say that I’m blessed by God through my family. I cope by just doing the best I can to better myself by reading the Bible and getting involved in the self-help packets. I keep some of their pictures up on the wall for motivation when I have difficult days. In all good conscience, I can’t be lazy or complacent on my rehabilitative efforts when they have done nothing but show me their love and support.
