Letter date – Aug 29th, 2016

Hello mom,

From reading your letter it looks like your hands have been full. You do so much on the computer and I have never messed around on it.  Of course, it was never like it is now. Back in the 90’s we had a computer but we didn’t have internet.

I was just reading the new issue of Time magazine you got for me. On the cover was little furry monster with horns, a big grin and a laptop on his lap.  the article speaks about all different websites, what they are used for and so on.  However, the main topic was about the hate in the internet world. It’s everywhere and it’s crazy.  I thought about what you said about me being called a racist and that is why I had no visitors.  Someone had spread rumors about me to people and maybe that is why nobody wants anything to do with me. Could this be the excuse I get now when there is still no visit? Like you, even though I know I can’t change anything with my family I can’t help but still think about it.  it seems as thought there should be a reason I could understand. Maybe I don’t agree with what is said but I don’t have any way to prove that it is not the way I am.

Being accused of being a racist when you know you have never said anything that could be taken as a racist remark makes me very angry. I have no way to defend myself. I can be accused of anything and those stories can be spread. People will believe these stories I am not this young immature man anymore. I am a man who has been through a lot these past ten years.  I have had to take responsibility for my actions and also take responsibility for things I didn’t do and was accused of doing, but I will be damned if I am going to take responsibility for being a racist.

It’s bad enough to be in here in the first place with other “charges” being added to my time.

    1. Thanks for the reblog. I am writing a book right now on Jamie’s life and there are many letters on posts that take you through is sentence which started almost 11 years ago. I’m in the editing phase.If he does his whole sentence which is likely in texas, he will be released in 2023. v I am actually the grandmother of his son – who has never touched as he was born after he was in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong person. His family pretty much kicked him to the curb so I became mom. On many of the posts are piano music pieces I improvise and record ( just to give you a little info) Have a wonderful day and thank you again.

    1. Yes, but when communication breaks down some people thing they know how a person is but never talks to them about it. When a person goes into prison for a lengthy visit family sometimes times visits at first but it isn’t unusual for it to stop altogether and leave them with no one. I think because these people know they are doing wrong it is a way to stay angry and make him feel it is his fault they don’t visit. I don’t think it is uncommon to make the other person be the bad guy. I will say, the accusation really made him angry. It came out of left field. He has had enough to deal with with having someone write and say something with no thought of what he would think when he read it.
