Homero Ortune 12/4/14 Hola. Esta ves yo les voy a platicar como es mi vida en la prición, no puedo estar quedandome por que yo cometi el herror pero pienso que todos meresemos un trato justo y en los 5 años que tengo in la pricion e visto muchas injusticias por ejempo, cuando te sientes mal tu pones un call para el doctor y no te atienden asta que casi te estas muriendo. otro es con alguons oficiales te hacen la vida imposible nadamas por que ellos quieren que agas algo y no lo haces te umillan provocandote a meterte en mas problemas. muchas veces me estreso por los mismos guardias y personas que trabajan aquí, por ejemplo yo trabajo in la cosina y tengo un supervisor que nos trata coma si fuieramos vasura nos grita nos ofende aparte de que nos pagan a 30 sentavos por hora la comida que sobra la tire enves de darnolas y cuando la estamos tirando el se rie de nostoros. Muchas veces aquí hay mucho violencia por que como entodos lados aqui tambien hay reglas entre nosotros reglas que abeces son estupidos pero yo no puedo hacer nada porque cuando yo yege aqui ya estaban, pero trato de mantenerme ocupado en las mañanas voy a la escuela para tratar de apreder Ingles y cuando salga de aqui poder tener mas oportunidades de trabajo, despues de mi escuela me voy a trabajar ala cosina y cuando salgo aga mí mí rutina de ejercicio por que anunque no me guste la violecia tienes que estar lista para cuando te toque resolver una falta de respeto, para mi con hablar seria suficiente pero aqui no lo es y te tienes que adactar el lugar dondes estas viviendo dos años atras yo me tuve que pelear porque alguien hablo mal de mi y yo se que eso no era motiva pero tenia que hacerlo si no ami me golpeaban haveses por todo esto pienso que por un espejismo que es el dinero lo pierdes todo como yo perdí la comunicación con mi familia in mexico mi madre estaba muy enferma antes que callera a pricion y horita no se si estabien, muchas veces me pongo muy triste cuando beo que a los demas presos les llegan cartas o las vienen a visitar me platican como viene sus familias vienen y les dan un abrazo, abrazo que yo nunca voy a recivir. Pos todos estos motivos [crossed out in margin: 66] les digo que el dinero no lo es todo, recuerda que lo mas valioso es tu libertad y sobretodo tu familia. Espero que mi histori les sirva de algo y peinsen que este lugar no es el infierno pero tampoco el paraiso. Translated by Cullen and Dewey Homero Ortune 12/4/14 Hello. This time I will tell you about how my life is in prison. I can't be complaining because I committed the mistake but I think that everyone deserves fair treatment and in the 5 years that I have been in prison I have seen many injustices; for example, when you feel bad you put in a "call" for the doctor and they don't see you until you are almost dying. Another is with several officials who make your life impossible just because they want you to do something and if you don't do it they humiliate you, causing you to get into more problems. Many times I get stressed about the same guards and people that work here, for example, I work in the kitchen and I have a supervisor that treats us as if we were trash. He screams at us, offends us, besides paying us 30 cents per hour. He throws the leftovers away instead of giving it to us and when we are throwing it away he laughs at us. Many times here there is a lot of violence because, like everywhere, there are also rules between us, rules that sometimes are stupid but I can't do anything because when I arrived here they were already there, but I try to keep myself occupied in the mornings, I go to school to try to learn English so when I leave I'll be. able to have more opportunities for work. After my class I go to work at the kitchen and when I leave I do my exercise routine because, although I don't like violence, you have to be ready for when you have to resolve a lack ofrespe~t. For me, it would be enough with talking, but here it is not and you have to adapt to the place where you are living in. Two years ago I had to fight because someone talked bad about me and I know that this wasn't reason but I had to do it. If not they hit me. Sometimes because of this illusion that money is, you lose everything, like I lost communication with my family in Mexico. My mom was very sick before I went to prison and now I don't know if she is well. Many times I feel very sad when the other prisoners get mail or they have visitors. They talk to me about how their families come and they give them a hug, a hug that I am never going to receive. For all of these reasons I tell you that the money is not everything. Remember that the most important thing is your freedom and above all your family. I hope that my story will be helpful and you learn something and you will think that this place is not Hell but not paradise either.
