Thanks for your letter and concern.
I’ll try to explain my experience, thoughts and realization. I am a 50 year old man serving 11 years. I am filled with mixed emotions when it comes down to this sickness. They promote social distancing but we’re crowded in a small area where it’s completely ignored.
I tested negative week after week and without a positive test I was moved to another dorm where inmates were positive or getting over it. If I did get it I didn’t feel it and it came and went. I am now in a dorm that’s supposed to be for 15 inmates but they have 30 inmates with no room. I wear my mask most of the time and I am clean and I wash my hands.
I was given my first shot and I felt sick and my arm was sore for the day. I am waiting on my second shot. I am hoping for the best and relying on the Creator to help me get through the remaining six years I have to serve.
I look at this place as a concentration camp where people come to die. My wishes is to remain where I am currently housed and do my schooling and drug classes. I’ve been moved three times and I only been here a year. Instead of containing the sickness they’re spreading it by moving everyone around so much.
Well thanks for your time. If you have any more questions please write as you know this is a sad and lonely place. Make sound and good decisions.
