Today is Saturday. Today, we made it through thunderstorms that lasted throughout the night and left motorists stranded on highways, farms flooded and some houses surrounded by water after 7 inches of rain fell.
Tonight, it is raining again with another line of thunderstorms. The ground being already waterlogged puts trees at risk for toppling if the winds pick up.
Today, I spoke with Matt. It was sunny out his way. Paul sends Matt his sermon outlines and sometimes a bunch of guys and Matt go outside to discuss the outlines.
Today, I thought I would not ever again have to send Barrett another card in prison. Alas, I will send him off one Monday. Feisty Barrett is going to tear these people up. The BOP made a terrible mistake having him arrested again. It’s this kind of garbage that only confirms everything Barrett has been writing about.
Today, I am thankful Jeffrey Sterling is out of solitary. Imagine being threatened by a guard, unprofessional and looking for trouble, and then being thrown in solitary because you wouldn’t let yourself be baited. You make a complaint about being threatened and you are punished.
That’s what happened to Jeffrey. His medication for his heart was taken away and he has lost phone and writing privileges for 30 days.
This is the prison industrial complex my friends. Hateful unprofessional people and the cowards who cover for them. Are all prison staff like that? No, but the decent humane people are a definite minority.
Maybe its good that it rains. To me if seems like tears falling from heaven for all of the men and women who suffer in US prisons.
To the hard hearted person who tweeted me today about Arkansas draining the swamp in response to the executions, I say, sadly, it is because of people who act like you why we have merciless monsters running prisons.
Mercy, compassion, redemption, forgiveness; when put in practice, they shine light in the darkness and fill a life with hope.
Peace my friends..💗🌹💗
