My name is _____. I am in prison for the first time and unfortunately for many years. I was in my country for some hours only. I came to the United States, lasted 2 years outside before ending up in prison. I don't have anything to write to you, only that I am going to school to learn English as my second language. It is something difficult but not impossible. I am in prison and one must try really hard.
