Loved this, I can read it over and over.
I am one of those people, affected by mass incarceration…not the incarcerated, just someone who loves an incarcerated young man I happen to give birth to.
Part of me was relieved when he was sentenced but part of me has not been able to let go of the fear since the day of his admission he needs help.
I so needed to read this today. As both a man grieving the loss of a close friend…brother…and as the biological brother to a younger sister 4 years younger than me. I am a recovering opioid addict and I have 2.5 years clean but the fight is never over. Brian P
