I just had a great visit with my mom. Just her mere presence is therapeutic and spiritually uplifting. I always prepare for my visits by creating a mental list of questions to catch up on life in the outside world, and topics of conversation to utilize our two hours to the fullest. No matter how much I prepare, I always seem to miss a few key topics but that’s okay because it gives us something to talk about the next time.

Walking back to my unit from visitation, I was stunned by the swarm of guards running to another unit where there must have been a group of several men fighting. I didn’t see the fight however; I did see the up-to-date weaponry used for crowd control in the hands of many guards. Many of them ran with night sticks and giant cans of mace and other guards were carrying what looked like grenades and big paint ball guns, loaded with either rubber bullets or mace of some sort.
