This letter was written by a person incarcerated at Jamestown.
To whom it may concern,
I am an inmate at Sierra Conservation Center level two. I have been incarcerated since 2009. I received this letter from PrisonPandemic project and I want to reply and let people know what a blessing it is to be free and with their loved ones in this hard times of the pandemic.
Our world has been turned upside down, but I hope that people can open their eyes and don’t take the little things in life for granted. Because you don’t know what you have ’til it’s gone.
This COVID has affected me in a profound way. I have lost relationships and the opportunity to see my family and hug them and spend quality time with them. I can honestly say this has been the hardest time for me in my 13 years of incarceration. However, I stay strong and positive, hopeful that this will end soon.
I cope with this situation by my faith in God. I put all my fear, worries and my life in his hands because he is the creator and has the whole universe in his hands.
I also work-out, read, draw and educate myself through college courses to get my mind off the negativities that’s going around the world. I would love to hear from anyone from PrisonPandemic project that can write and can be a support in these hard times. Thank you for your time.
May God bless you.
