My Longest Residence Was In Prison by Ruth Utnage

Rory and I got to thinking about something the other day, both of our longest residences have been in prison. Specifically a cell. Mine was D-610-2 (3 years). Crazy how that works.

Actually, it also occurred to me that the school I attended the longest was in prison, Edmonds College, 3 years and 140 credits (with a 4.0 GPA BTW!).

I know that this is the case for many people in here. I can't tell you how many people I've run into that have said the same thing. Prison brought stability.

When the time comes to truly reform prison, I believe that stable elements like housing should stay.

With Love
Ruth
