    Our anniversary is Tuesday,

    and we can't see other, so I am missing him. I remember the doctor telling him that he is dying, and even through his pain, he was smiling at me. I asked him how he could be smiling, and he said "even when he is leaving this earth, he will have a smile on his face for me". I...

    Who Walks In My Shoes?

    My fiance has been in federal prison for 8 months. I won't say he's innocent, but I can tell you that what he's going through is unnecessary; essentially, he's paying for his past mistakes. From over a decade ago. And that he's already served time for. But they wanted to snag...

    It's been about a year since he went away. Another year, maybe two, before he comes home. I am certainly not an expert, but I have (sadly) become accustomed to the written and unwritten codes of conduct by which a prison visitor must abide. I've watched countless comrades...
