For any change to come, we must love ourselves and stop all the violence.
The COVID-19 pandemic and racial injustice has affected my way of life. I am housed in a part of San Quentin that has not been affected by COVID-19. I have not seen many of my friends, who are also inmates, since the last week of March because this place has been put on a modified program. This has been a hard blow for me also having to deal with seeing so many minorities mistreated on television. It has hurt my heart and soul.
