Time stands still

Getting locked up:

I don’t think that people realize all things that people will miss when they go to prison. Time stands still when you go to prison. Inmates lose so many things when they are behind those walls and I don’t think they realize that until something happens like a loss of a love one. Imagine going into prison at 21 years of age and getting released at 35 years of age. 14 years have gone by. You do not have the same friends. Some of your family memebers may have graduated high school or may be married by now with children. Maybe some of your family members have passed away.  Nothing looks the same in your neighborhood.

Technology:

When you went into prison you didn’t have touchscreen cellphones or touchscreen computers. You didn’t apply for jobs online. When had an interview for a job you met in person not on Zoom.  You paid your bills with a check, cash or  with a debit card on the phone or online banking. And ATM’s weren’t as advanced as they are now.  You are used to top washers and dryers.  you are asking what is this?. There were not all these Apps from weight loss to dating and everything in between when you went into prison. Oh and let’s not forget Door Dash and Grubhub.

Growing up:

Some grow up in prison but it isn’t growing up in the way most people.  Fifteen years later they think of growing up.  Some grow up being more tough and institutionalized. More with a prison mentality, not a well-rounded way of growing up. Unfortunally, that happens more often than not. Prison is rough and inmates always have to be on guard to protect themselves, be aware of their surroundings at all times.

Education in Prison:

Education in prisons is not what it should be. The government gives money for programs but the programs could be better. The prison system coud prepare inmates a lot better and give them more skills and training for release so that they have a better chance out on the streets and not a chance of returning. The return rate is high because the prison system does not prepeare inmates for life outside of prison. How can it. Inmates life in prison is so structured and everything is done for them, that when they get out ont the streeets they have no idea what to do. Inmates have no idea how to care for themselves especially when modern technology is so advanced and they do not know how to use it. Inmates are barely getting a GED because they are on a computer and teacher sits at desk.

Computers:

Inmates are only allowed to use their tablets for commnication with loved ones and media. They are allowed to use the computers if they are in the GED class. Considering how much the outside world uses computers, you would think that prisons would offer computer classes. Inmates do not know how to complete a resume or use computer applications or programs. And that is just setting inmates up to fail.

Change:

What needs to change? A lot needs to change. Stop setting inmates up to fail. More computer classes, there are ways to set up computers so that they can learn without getting on the internet. Letting them be more responsible for themselmes while they are in prison, (which might stop a lot of the fighting) give them more skills and job training so that when they get out they are capable of getting a job.

  23. After exploring a few of the articles on your web page, I really like your way of writing
    a blog. I saved as a favorite it to my bookmark website list and will
    be checking back soon. Take a look at my web site too and tell me your opinion.

    1. Hi,
      No I don’t have nay problems with hackers. I use as many safety plug-ins as I can. I would hate to lose all my blog post. I have so many stories on that have come from people that have been incarcerated themselves and their families. I don’t write for myself, I write for them.

    1. Hi I don’t mind if you share my blog with anyone. I appreciate all the positive feedback that I get from everyone. I write the stories that I get from the ones that are incarcerated and their families. These are their stories, not mine.

    1. I have resources on my blog page, I add more resources as I get them. I also have another blog that I just started that is soley for individuals for peolpe with disabilities. that website is hopeforchangellc.com

    1. I agree that it is up to other people to help, however other people do not always not get involved or do not know where to get the help. And I see so many people be released from prison with mental health issues and they are not gettin the help that they need. The lack of help is one of the main reasons they are being sent back to prison and that doesn’t need to happen.

    1. Thank you for the compliment. I don’t know if I will be famous but my goal is just get information out there because I think people should know what goes on. I think the voices should be heard from the inmate’s lives that have to live like this.

  24. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance
    from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
    quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m
    not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    Thanks

    1. Hi, it can be tough to start your own blog. It depends on your topic and how often you write. Unfortunately my writing isn’t as often as I would like. I wait until I get a new story from someone or I hear about someone. ALl my stories are true and come from people that are or have been in prison. Sometimes I hear from their families, so it takes me awhile to get a story. But if you have good content and can write all the time you should be just fine. I’m buildong another blog on disabilities and raising children so we will see how that one goes. My best advice is just write as much and as often as you can.

  25. Hi there, just became alert to your blog through Google, and found that it is really informative.
    I am going to watch out for brussels. I’ll appreciate if you
    continue this in future. Lots of people will
    be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  26. Definitely imagine that which you said. Your favorite
    reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to bear in mind of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time as other folks think about worries that they just do
    not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other folks
    could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more.
    Thank you

  27. Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Thanks,
    However I am experiencing problems with your RSS.
    I don’t know the reason why I can’t join it. Is there anyone else having the same RSS issues?

    Anyone that knows the answer will you kindly respond? Thanx!!

  28. An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you ought to write more about this topic, it might not be a taboo subject
    but generally folks don’t talk about such issues. To the next!

    Many thanks!!

    1. Hello,
      I do a lot of research online, I read the news online, I’m on facebooks groups but some of those you have to have a family member or friend that is incarcerated to join. I get most of my information from friends that I have in prisons and thier families. Sometimes, they just need someone to talk to or someone to tell their story. there are penpals to write inmates to get first hand information

  33. Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    1. Hi,
      I didn’t use any coding. I think it would on how you set up youe webpage and who you use to set up your webpage. If that makes sense. I like use Green Geeks and WordPress for one my websites and then INOS and WordPress for another. And I dind’t have to set anything up it was already done for me. I would suggest using either one of those. they are both great programs and very easy to use.

  45. Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a
    similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam
    responses? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.

    1. Hello,
      I do get a lot of spam responses. I have my comments set up so I read them first before I publish them. If it is spam then I enter their comments to it as spam, the next time they try to respond I don’t even get it. It goes to email as spam so I just delete the email. It is a huge waste of time to go through all those spam responses which is why I changed how I receive the comments. Good luck.
      Shelley

  46. First of all I would like to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting
    my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing however
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
    or hints? Cheers!

    1. Hello,
      Thanks for your comment, I appreciate the kind words. Sometimes, it’s difficult to find a way to say what you want to say, especially when you’re writing for someone else’s life and you’re giving a voice to someone who doesn’t have one right now. I have waited a few days to think about what I write and figure out what and how I want to tell someone’s story. Have you tried writing it down in a notebook first and then posting it on your website? Sometimes that helps me when I can write a few ideas first and then move them to the website. This isn’t my only blog so I have a lot to think about all the time and focus on. Research your topic first also helps.
      If I may ask what is your website about? What do you write about? I hope this helps. Again, thanks for the comments.

      Take care,
      Shelley

  47. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thank you!

  48. The importance of keywords such as “Top-rated drunk driving lawyers” and
    “DUI legal representation specialists” is significant in a city like
    Las Vegas, NV. Situated in an energetic area, Clark McCourt Criminal Lawyers serves communities like Amber
    Hills and Arts District, where such legal expertise is often sought.

    Las Vegas, the home of Clark McCourt Criminal Lawyers, is a city
    with a rich history, founded in 1905. With a community of 646,790
    (as of 2021) and 240,462 households, it’s a center of activity.
    The Las Vegas Beltway, a major highway, cuts across this bustling city.

    The cost of legal representation, especially for DUI cases, in Las Vegas can differ.
    Given the city’s extreme temperature variations, from scorching summers to chilly winters, it’s crucial to have reliable legal assistance.

    Among the city’s attractions, AREA15 and Aliante Nature Discovery Park stand out.
    For example, AREA15 offers immersive entertainment experiences, and Aliante Nature Discovery Park is celebrated for
    its scenic landscapes. Both offer unique experiences reflective of Las Vegas’s
    diverse attractions.

    Choosing Clark McCourt Criminal Lawyers in Las Vegas is a smart decision for local
    residents. With their specialized knowledge in DUI cases
    and familiarity with the local community, they stand out
    as a top choice.
