San Quentin News,
Just wanted to give you a shout-out for the article on Mental Health Week. I’m so glad that this has been brought to focus with the CDC. This is something long coming. People only see and hear what prison life does to a person, when there is more that can be done besides prayer, hope, love. I know this because your article has my brother’s name on suicides: Jesse Hernandez. He was a big brother that I looked up to, and is still missed so much it hurts.
Thank you again.
We thank you for your kind and inspirational words. San Quentin News will continue to raise your brother’s name and the rest of our fallen brothers and sisters.
We don’t always hear the effects this loss has on the family.
If it’s not too painful, San Quentin News would like to tell your story.
I have been following your website since learning of your news organization and journalists through a story on race relations in prisons that aired on NPR.
I’m especially thinking of you all and your community, now as the COVID-19 virus threatens all communities, but especially those where individuals are not able to isolate in place.
Are you receiving safety supplies?
Grand Rapids, Mich.
