Day 1034 crushed

Today is Thursday. Today, I received some sad news. If you recall, I saved up $150.00 and bought my friend, Joe, a guitar. He got permission from his CO and showed her the picture of the one I was ordering for him.
He is in a CCA in Tennessee (private prison). That should say everything.
Joe came back after spending Christmas and New Years alone in a small cell because his court date was cancelled and no one told him.
When he got back to his original cell, staff from the property room brought the guitar, showed it to him and told him he couldn’t have it. They said acoustic/electric aren’t allowed even though others have the same guitars from the same company.
He was crushed. I am crushed. The cruelty is so damn overwhelming.
I am in tears. Throw my freakin’ heart in the garbage disposal.

    Heartbreaking. Senseless often seems to equal heartless. Keep on keepin’ on; others see God in you. xo
