Christopher Condon
I've always found solace in the written form of language. When I was younger simply writing via text message, email etc. granted me a reprieve from the anxiety of asking tough questions face-to-face.  You almost never stumble over your words when anxiety strikes while you are writing.  Although, your penmanship may become a bit shaky.

Since I was incarcerated Feb. 2018 writing has- by necessity-become a more permanent form of communication for me.  Being forced to pick up a pen has only brought me to enjoy expressing my thoughts on paper all the more.

I was only 19 when I was arrested on murder charges.  Majority of the free world was still a mystery to me and I was forced to enter a world I knew nothing about.  When my lawyer came to me, he recommended I accept the prosecution's latest plea offer of 24 yrs. I was devastated.  Who wouldn't be devastated to lose 24 years of their freedom?  No amount of mental preparation can completely prepare you for that.  But, I strengthened my resolve & decided I would do this time & where I've come from. come home the best version of myself I can possibly be.

Of course, my incarceration is only one facet of who I am and where I‘ve come from.  And I cannot wait to open up to those I can connect with.  I'm hoping to hear from all walks of life and hopefully you'll wind up being one of them.  I look forward to finding out.
