Journal Entry: Jody Lynn Hughlette-11/15/2023

Journal Entry

Today I am struggling. So it was nice to hear from Michael. It is easy to get overwhelmed when you are facing a 22-year sentence. Especially here at a camp where you are surrounded by short-timers. Someone is always going home and you have years left on your sentence. While I pray everyday for reform that will shorten my sentence I have to accept the fact that I will be spending another decade behind bars. But my mind can be free. We are getting ready to start a college course here at Pekin and I am super excited to be studying Business Management. Staying positive and moving forward !!!
