I’m One (1) year as a formerly incarcerated Political
For me, this is an irregular solicitation: uncharacteristic of me, but emphatically necessary under the circumstances. It behooves me to say in the most direct and simple, clear and distinct words possible, I’m hurting financially, and need some support, loving kindness, solidarity, and some support from any and all that feel so inclined to assist me. To send me a much needed check or money order,do so c/o: sekou kambui/william turk, p.o. box 195, Dothan, AL 36301.
However, first and foremost, permit me give articulation again, to those who contributed to my support upon my release, your caring and loving support helped me get a home, (rented, of course), furnishing for it to the point it looks kind of cute inside / out.
Since my release from behind enemy lines on June 30 2014, I’ve had to lean on family and friends to survive financially. The government refuses to grant me “DISABILITY”…says, since I’ve never worked a job out of prison, i’m ineligible for anything but SSI for retiring? How do you retire if you’ve never worked? I have worked everyday for over 50 years in prison, many times on three or more jobs: chapel and law clerk, hospice worker, paralegal adviser, social wokrer and counselor with my group Social Consciousness development group, paralegal adviser,computer literacy aide/teacher, and such like. but never worked for the STATE, HUH? who runs the prison if not the STATE?
The state refuses me disability, even as it appears they didn’t adequate describe my health status; they said I had acquired “anemia”, when in fact, what I had acquired was a golf-ball sized tumor in my colon at the joining of my lower intestine, causing me to lose weight and not “anemia”.
Since that discovery, I’ve now contracted congested heart failure, hypertension, some stage of Hepatitis, and they still refuse me food stamps to supplement the insufficient SSI Check, that is gone once, rent, utilities, internet fees, groceries is deducted.
This brings me to this point:
Should you be willing to extend some much needed financial support; it will be emphatically appreciated w/ love.
Should you not feel so inclined, you’ll stll be loved as a friend to me. Loved and Appreciated: UNCONDITIONALLY1
