Please allow me to include myself in a gross generalization. I am one of those people who just assumed that anyone in jail MUST be guilty, a “bad-guy”.
I write today to stand corrected.
Nothing that I was ever taught me in my 67years of living, prepared me for the shocking and truly unsettling truth. There are some super nice, generous, helpful, kind, loving, caring and nurturing folks currently behind bars… Not “BAD GUYS” at all.
I would not have considered myself to be particularly naive, but the truth betrays me. How could I have not known that our fair and just “judicial” system complete with democratic checks and balances could operate in a shadowy soup of injustice?
I openly and heart-fully extend my apologies for my limited ideology. Herewith I applaud you fair and beautiful women for your inherent Goodness and I happily honor these precious souls;
Megan – your open friendly graciousness and our generosity are bigger than Santa himself.
Erika – your thoughtful hands of guidance and counsel creates an indispensable road map through the many perils of incarceration.
Brittany – your genuine smile and your calming presence soothe and settle the nerves.
Autumn – your hysterical sense of humor bring deep healing belly laughter and is so necessary.
Camille – your sweet kindness keeps the water flowing in the showers.
Chelsea – your radiant creativity offers mental stimulation, your crafty problem solving are beyond ingenious.
Heather – you are the hostess with the mostest, you are the ultimate nurturing “Mama ducky” spreading your wings of protection and love. You do the impossible – You make this place almost feel like home.
Thank You beautiful and awesome women! I am forever touched by who you are
“The Good Guys”
