“I want to start by saying thank you all so much for your support. What I am doing would not be possible without all the support I have been receiving. The letters have been incredible. I am so sorry to those I have yet to write back; I am only allowed to purchase $9 in postage a week, but know that I am inspired by every single one of you. I can’t wait to hear more about ya’ll and or to exchange thoughts and ideas with y’all.
I am doing just fine in here, but being here is a constant reminder that every prisoner is a political prisoner and that one of the reasons I am doing so well is that I have all of this support. Hopefully one day we can build more networks of prisoner support so that more of the amazing people, like my friends in here, can receive the type of mail stacks I receive daily. I want to make it very clear that I am very grateful you have all been taking time to support me. It helps me survive. I just wanted to add some thoughts that I have been having:
My friends in here are so incredible and strong; they have taken wonderful care of me and welcomed me into their lives. My friends outside are likewise incredible; the type of selfless support work that they have been doing inspires me every hour of every day. My family has also had amazing, unwavering support and for that I cannot thank them enough.
Thank you all again so much. I can’t wait to keep hearing from y’all, and I really can’t wait to see ya’ll again.
Keep struggling, keep smiling, in solidarity,
PS: to my international friends and supporters postage is really limited, so it will take me a while to respond, but I love to hear from y’all. Thank you for your continued support and I hope to continue to got to know you all better via letters.”
