The Status of Mumia

By Mumia Abu-Jamal

I don’t normally do this, that is, I don’t write about myself. I find it much more interesting to tell other people’s stories, the spinning balloon we live in, stories generated by the fragile human condition and the liberation struggles of humanity.

But I divert from the topic, uncomfortably.

This is a commentary on the commentator.

Several weeks ago I underwent a medical procedure known as open heart surgery, a double bypass after it was known that there were obstacles in two beating blood vessels toward my heart that damaged heart function.

This deficiency was repaired by some well-prepared young cardiologists and with extensive experience in this complex surgical procedure.

I tell you, I had no idea what I was suffering from such a disease. But now to be perfectly honest, I feel pretty good. I actually feel more energy than normal.

I thank all of you — my family, my friends and friends — for your love and support.

We’re moving forward to freedom, wholeheartedly!

From the imprisoned nation, I am Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Write a letter to Mumia. They only accept letters written on a white paper, no drawings. Letters go to Florida, where they are photocopied and the prisoner receives the copy.
