“After Each Visit, I’m Re-Traumatized”: Vivett Dukes Speaks Her Truth

The truth is that only someone who has been in prison or who loves and supports someone in prison can truly understand how dehumanizing prison is....the truth is that the resilience of any man, woman, or child who has endured being incarcerated is beyond mere understanding...After each visit to Sing Sing, I am re-traumatized. I can’t get used to the norm of that environment of constantly being demoralized and belittled. The truth is that what the correctional officers and the whole prison industrial system offer is punishment. All day. Every day. Imagine living life like that for years upon years, decades upon decades....I’m tearing up writing this....and thinking about all that my husband has had to endure these past 19 years...I’m so sorry you had to endure such pain, baby....You are a walking miracle...it’s time for you to come home...I miss you...I love you...I need you home...🙏🏾😪💔#SpeakYaTruth #TheDukes #JohnandVivett #LoveNeverFails #JustHoldOnImComingHome
