Do you know anyone in jail? I do, several.
I know someone who is in jail for murder and a few in for stupidity, right now - they are all on death row with Covid -19. "We are Out of sight & out of mind..." my brother educated me - who has time to think about people in jail when we are dealing with life let alone a pandemic ( & more).
PLEASE remember & I stress this because I forget - it's not only terrible humans, in jail where they belong, there are others that 'fucked up'. We all do at some point but we all don't get caught. Perhaps something like fraud, theft, not pying bills.. impaired (I am NOT justifying any crime) ...who knows - JUST not people that physically hurt others are now isolated, locked up & just like all us, concerned about covid... with not even a window to crack open in facilaties with circulated air and poor hygene. Not good.
Apparently inmates are being kept seperate when first entering cell blocks.. how seperate can that be. There are old guys in there, not well in poor health...
I don't know... are they safer? They at least have meals daily and a roof over their heads. Court dates pushed back (why are they not ZOOMing court) yet every day in jail -during covid - makes up for a shorter sentence. I think one day in jail with covid will be considered 2.5.. something like that. - Do you know why, I don't remember exactly?
I'm not locked in a cell during a pandemic. Inmates are counting the minutes, not days or months. WE are free - still you and me, don't forget it.
Give thanks. Stay out of trouble.
Perhaps you could think of someone in jail and reach out and say 'hello'.
Send a funny card- I dont think they can get cards.. but you can write letters!
I've actually had terrific luck with what I send - it seems to get through & I thank God.
I like to hear I make others smile, in particular those who might need to smile, most.
Out of sight out of mind is sometimes a good thing - others times, not so much.
Inmates are just like us, feeling at times (more than most of us) sad, loney and frightened.
No one wants to be a sitting duck.
I was up before Gloria! Painting cocks - Cockadoodledoooooo & they turned out terrific these cockhouses will fly, I hope! ALL proceeds to local charaties in Haliburton & Minden & surrounding areas. -Do what you can do - cockadoodle dooo!
With THC & TLC
Never say never.. maybe you don't someone in jail, I use to think like that.. then I've witnessed several go to jail this lifetime. It's sad - always sad, even the ones 'I think' belong.
