Moment of Silence, or Perhaps Not: EAD

Solitary confinement is not what you see in the movies.

It is not a place of solitude and serenity.

It is hell

Sleep deprivation

Noise pollution

Abandonment

When that door of this depiction of this cell was open,

something in my spirit shook.

Suddenly my surroundings of normalcy of this huge conference room where this cell was

I wanted to cling to it.

Because the inside of this cell, bothered me, even if it wasn’t all real

Yet,

this is reality for millions of people locked away.

If you call yourself a Christian, and don’t feel moved to action and to justice

I have no words.

  1. Thank you for your courage in spending time in the cell. As one of the solitary reform activists in Wisconsin who built a replica cell here, I’m very grateful.
