I received your e-mail today and I am doing just fine as I could under these circumstances, my mother is doing well as well. yeah a lot of prisoners have been exposed to the covid-19 and 9 prisoners died from it. It is a damn shame how they disregard
I'm writing this message, because the coronavirus has now allegedly caused the death of a prisoner at Sing Sing Correctional Facility pending an autopsy. This prisoner also had other medical complications as well. So the Prison Administration doesn't really know what he died from until his autopsy results come back from the state medical examiner. However, the administration has completely sealed off two tiers for prisoner's which are infected with the coronavirus.. Will, most of the officers and prisoners are wearing protection over their face and practicing social distances. I'm doing all of the necessary precautions to prevent spread of the coronavirus.
Well other than that I'm still doing the same things as usual. I'm making sure that I stay healthy. So, that's my primary concern, and everything else will come together. I want to be a person who will survive and adapt to my conditions. The majority of people are survivors, it's encoded into our DNA to be just that survivors period! -Byron Brown
I'm writing this message to check on you. I just want to make sure that things are fine with you and your family
I will offer you a tip on how I deal with the isolation. I think about the things that I need to do personally to get my life in order. I have to constantly remind myself of the good things I have in my life, because sometimes we tend to be forgetful of those blessings or advantages. Lately, I've been really thinking about all of the people who died from coronavirus and how their deaths will affect not only their families but society as well. Therefore, when I reflect upon my current situation, I'm immediately reminded to be very humble, because I have a life. It may not be the one I planned on having but I certainly can change the outcome of my life. We should be more mindful and appreciative of what we have and don't possess in life so, we'll work extra hard to obtain those things in which will make our lives more pleasant.
Stay positive and focus on yourself! -Byron Brown
it's really bad out there, huh. This too shall pass. Imagine what those in undeveloped countries go through. The Black community is really getting hammered. I believe it was Malcolm X who said, that when America has a cold, the Black community catches a flu.
