UPDATE: Ms. Hill continues to receive a lot of mail daily.  She asked me to relay that her gratitude goes out to the people sending letters, and that many of these letters are very beautiful and powerful.  She would like to thank everyone for sending them, and she will continue to add names to this list.  Also, there have been people sending items for her to sign.  Some of these items get confiscated, so she is not able to sign and send them back.


_______________________________________________________________________


Ms. Hill has received a lot of mail, and would like to let everyone know that she is doing well.  She also asked me to pass along this message:

"I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials.  Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor I have encountered while in here, and general warm reception from a community of people who despite their circumstances, have found unique ways to make the best of them.  Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day.  Although I may not be able to write everyone back, please know that they have been received, read, acknowledged, and appreciated. With Love back, MLH"
