COVID-19 has really changed things up for everyone! Including those who are incarcerated. Obviously not to the degree of being out in the world but it has affected us.
It has been about 8 months since I have had a visit and it definitely changes things up. I was fortunate to get regular visits from my family members and Pastor. It makes you realize how we sometimes take things for granted.
If your out there and you have a loved one locked-up, the simple things mean the world. Every visit, letter, and message. Hearing your name mail-call and getting a letter can change your whole week. Seeing a smiling face on a video kiosk, or getting a hug if your fortunate enough to have contact visit. Never underestimate the value of these gestures. I know I haven’t always been the best and I’ve done some terrible things. But most of us are trying to become better men and the support from our people is the most valuable thing we can get.
