bayside state prison

THANK YOU, EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORTIVE COMMENTS, ABOUT THE MILITARY WIFE, WHO WROTE THINGS AGAINST THIS JOURNAL..........YES, I HAVE BLOCKED HER.  WHY?  BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T BELONG HERE. SHE NEEDS TO FIND A MILITARY WIFE JOURNAL, WHERE SHE CAN GO THERE FOR SUPPORT, SO SHE CAN DEAL WITH HER ANGER, IN A CONSTRUCTIVE WAY.

HOWEVER, IF SHE IS STILL READING THIS, I JUST WANT O SAY A FEW MORE THINGS, TO GET IT OFF MY CHEST.......

AT THIS MINUTE, AND MOMENT, YOU SHOULD  BE DOWN ON BENDED KNEES, PRAYING TO GOD, FOR THE SAFE RETURN OF YOUR HUSBAND....TO BRING HIM BACK TO YOU IN ONE PIECE, ALIVE AND WELL, SO YOU CAN RESUME YOUR HOME LIFE, IN A NORMAL WAY.  I WOULD NOT BE OUT THERE, JUDGING OTHER PEOPLE, AT THIS TIME. 

YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY, A BABE IN THE WOODS...STILL WET BEHIND THE EARS........YOU HAVE SEEN NOTHING IN LIFE, NOTHING YET.  SO BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU FOCUS YOUR THOUGHTS, BECAUSE IT MAY COME BACK TO YOU IN A CRUEL, WAY, IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL....IT IS LIKE THAT FOR ALL OF US ON THIS PLANET....THAT IS JUST HOW IT WORKS

THE WORLD OF THE MILITARY AND THE WORLD OF PRISONS, ARE WORLDS APART...BUT, THEY ARE LITTLE WORLDS, IN THEIR OWN ENTITY....EACH WORLD FUNCTIONS AS THEIR OWN LITTLE WORLD.  MOST OF WHAT GOES ON BEHIND PRISON WALLS, IS UNKNOWN TO MOST.

MOST PEOPLE "GENERALIZE"IN THEIR MINDS, WHO A CRIMINAL IS.  I KNOW THAT I DID AT ONE TIME.........CRIMINALS ARE EVIL, VICIOUS PEOPE, LURKING BEHIND EVERY CORNER...READY TO ATTACK.. THAT MAY BE THE CASE IN SO MANY, BUT THERE ARE THOSE WHO MAY NOT FIT THE "MOLD."....even if it is .1%, IT IS WELL WORTH IT....TO CARE FOR THAT .1%........AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND THEM, AND LOVE THEM.

I AM NOT TRYING, BY ANY MEANS TO COMPARE THE MILITARY TO PRISONERS, IN THIS JOURNAL.  TO DO SO, WOULD BE A BIG MISTAKE ON MY PART, AND WOULD BE VERY FOOLISH.  IF I HAVE GIVEN ANYONE THAT IMPRESSION, PLEASE FORGIVE ME, I DID NOT MEAN THAT AT ALL.  I ONLY COMPARE BEING WITHOUT THE ONE YOU LOVE...HOW DIFFICULT IT IS....AND THE DIFFICULT PASSAGE OF TIME, THROUGH DAY TO DAY LIFE, AND HOLIDAYS....HOW WE STAY ALONE...WAITING, AND WONDERING ABOUT OUR HUSBANDS.

I READ AN ARTICLE, NOT TOO LONG AGO, THAT MILITARY MEN ARE TAKING THEIR FAMILIES, AND RUNNING AWAY, OUT OF THE COUNTRY, TO CANADA.  THEY DO NOT WANT TO FIGHT THE WAR.  ISN'T THIS A CRIME?....I THINK IT IS.  WELL, I GUESS, ANYONE CAN DO WRONG THINGS, UNDER THE RIGHT CIRCUMSTANCES....

JIMMY TELLS ME EVERYDAY, HOW HE MEETS PRISONERS, IN PRIISON, WHO WERE ONCE IN THE MILITARY.  I WAS SHOCKED TO HEAR THIS.  "FRAN, HE SAYS, EVEN AN EX-MILITARY MAN CAN COMMIT CRIMES.".........SO, IT IS NOT BEYOND MILITARY MEN TO COMMIT CRIMES.

MY HUSBAND WAS IN THE MILITARY....IN THE 70'S, DURING THE VIETNAM ERA.  HE WAS PROUD TO BE IN THE ARMY, AND HAD AN "HONORABE DISCHARGE."

HE LATER BECAME AN ATTORNEY.  JIMMY KNOWS THE LAWS, AND THE HISTORY OF AMERICA, BETTER THAN MOST PEOPLE KNOW THEIR NAME.  HE CAN RE-CITE, FROM MEMEORY, THINGS WE ONLY LEARNED, AND THEN FORGOT IN HIGH SCHOOL.  HE KNOWS THINGS, BY HEART, SUCH AS THE CONSTITUTION, THE PREAMBLE....AND OTHER THINGS.  HE CAN RE-CITE EACH PRESIDENT'S NAME, SINCE GEORGE WASHINGTON, AND CAN TELL YOU ABOUT EACH ONE, AND CAN DRAW A SKETCH OF EACH ONE.....

JIMMY IS ONE OF THE MOST DEDICATED AMERICAN CITIZENS, THAT I HAVE EVER KNOWN.......GIVEN A CHANCE, HE WOULD BE RIGHT OUT THERE FIGHTING FOR HIS COUNTRY....(ALTHOUGH HIS POLITICAL VIEWS DO NOT AGREE WITH WHAT IS TAKING PLACE NOW, WITH THE WAR)...

AS I HAVE SAID....YOU ARE A BABE IN THE WOODS.  YOU HAVEN'T SEEN LIFE YET.  I HOPE YOU ARE NOT DIS-ILLISIONED OR SURPRISED ALONG THE ROAD OF LIFE....IT TAKES A STRONG PERSON TO SURVIVE THIS WORLD.

HAVING SAID ALL THAT, I WILL SAY GOOD-NITE, AND PEACE!                       FRAN

Now I feel kind of bad....like maybe you might think I have that persons same mind set. I hope you dont mind me reading your Journal but if you do in any way please tell me. Your right about people in the Military commit crimes too that is why we have a brige. Thats why you dont hear a lot about them going to jail cause they are not held most of the time to the ciliv. way of life they are held to a court of Military people...for serious crimes they go to Levensworth (however you spell it) which is one place they say you dont even want your dog going to. Sure our worlds maybe very far apart in what has caused our husbands to be away from us but yet in a strange way we are very much a like. We cant be with our husbands at certain times. We long for them, we cry for the lose of them, and we pray they will return to us safe.....I think that makes us connect in a lot of ways. I am sorry for such a rude comment that another Military wife left you but please dont think that we all share those same views. Hugggs Robin

Hi Fran,
I just found your journal. A very interesting story. I believe there's hope for everyone, and what people "have done" doesn't make them "who they are." I have been arrested twice for drunk driving and could easily have killed someone but luckily and but the Grace of God I didn't...but the fact is everyone makes mistakes in their lives. No one can judge but God. Also I like what you said about karma...what comes around goes around...definitely true.
