This week what made me happy was the instagram @humansofny. He post pictures daily on peoples real life problems and right now he is posting about inmates from five different federal prisons across the Northeast including Manhattan and Brooklyn. I always enjoy reading his post because most of them are there because of drug dealing. But they all have a reason behind selling the drugs. Its sad to see how some people chose the easy way out but some had no choice. It makes me feel so appreciative of my family because at our lowest in life they never saw drugs as an answer to fix the problems.
The inmates that he talks about had a life before they chose that route. They were working or studying in school or doing both. One women had 4 kids and a sick mother and ended up transporting cocaine from Manhattan to Massachusetts for 2 years and ended up going to jail for 25 years.
