Yesterday our prison visit with Leonard Peltier was monumental and very uplifting and sad at the same time!
Leonard came out with a smile and he looked good after surviving COVID-19! Like most prisoners, he was left to fend for himself as he battled the sickness! He was left without water for 4 days! The water out of the fountain is not drinkable and orange in color! Leonard was not put inside a medical unit even though he has several “health risks” and is an elder! We are so thankful he survived Covid! The Covid aftereffects are unknown and we pray for Leonard's  Health!
