From Resurrected Lyon by Tavares Wright (author's profile)



My name is Tavares Jerrod Wright. I am 35-years young, 6'2", and 210 lbs. I was born and raised in Polk County, Florida. I love exercising, reading, martial arts, and playing basketball whenever I'm allowed outside recreation. Being confined to this 6x9 cell nearly 24/7, I face many challenges. But I remain to be quite optimistic, athletic, energetic, and spiritual.

I was convicted of two counts of 1st degree murder and sentenced to death. Unfortunately, I am not allowed to work nor participate in any educational/religious programs or other activities offered to the general prison population. So you could imagine how boring life is here too. Therefore, I send my words to you all. I'm open to feedback. I like exchanging thoughts and ideas with others from different cultural backgrounds and religions too. Feel free to drop comments as you please.

I look forward to sharing thoughts with you all!

Hey, I'm Emilia and I'm from Poland. I was given your mail address, but I'm wondering if there's any possibility that I could write an email, as I don't have much money. I'm sending you love and real energy.

Hey Tavares, I don't know if you remember me. I wanted to ask if you got my second letter. Maybe it wasn't delivered or your response wasn't.
Take care, best regards,
