Letter from theOutside Collective
Dear Inside Collective, As we are getting settled into our new meeting space, the outside collective of Hearts on aWire is really beginning to pick up speed! Weare getting so much good writing from insideand outside collective members and aregetting support for our mailings andcommissary campaigns from individuals andorganizations alike. In addition to bringinyou our next newsletter we want to addresstwo pieces of news with you.First, we have changed our address! Our newmeeting space allows us to receive mail and wehave opted to do that. Unfortunately, there hasbeen some trouble with our PO box. Because of some confusion and federal postal privacy law,it appears we will not be able to gather all of our mail from our previous address. Anything you may have sent us between March 1st and April 1st, we probably did not receive. We areso sorry and appreciate that your letterscannot be recreated. We are saddened by theloss of your communications and have doneeverything in our power to try to get themback. If you are able to resend anything thatwas sent in that time, that would be great. Wewill continue to try to retrieve that mail, butin the meantime please send all future mail to:
Hearts on a Wire1315 Spruce StreetPhiladelphia, PA 19107
Second, we are planning to send out materialsfor the commissary campaign. The outsidecollective, based on your suggestions, hasdesigned a brochure that can be used to collectsignatures in support of our commissarycampaign. We are looking for inside collectivemembers to work as contact people for thesesignature sheets. We would be sending yousignature sheets and asking that you sendthese sheets back to us once they are signed. If you are interested in assisting us with this,please write to Hearts on a Wire and let usknow!In solidarity,

I was good friends withMiss Ebony and Miss Ebony's lover. Iwas the one who gave her lover the news.It was a sad day for us all. For Ebonywas loved by many. She spent the lasttwo weeks of her life in medical. If youask me the DOC gave up on my friendbecause she was never going home.There were two COs with her and theysay she was singing when she passedaway. There was a memorial held for herand all showed their love for her.I don't feel sorry for my friend Ebony. I feel sorry for the ones whonever got to know my friend. Ebony showed her love freelytherefore she was more free than anyone I know. My heart goesout to the ones who lost a friend in Miss Ebony. For they lostsomeone sweet, kind, strong, and free in her love for others.Miss Ebony: I'm sorry I had to say goodbye so soon. You are lovedand missed.
