My Dears:

Well, the impossible takes a little longer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We learned this morning that the US Attorney’s office has made the motion for my compassionate release and that the Order was on Judge Koeltl’s desk. Since on the last go-round he stated in Court that he would treat it “favorably”, we are now just waiting expectantly.

The wonderful thing is that Ralph is here in Ft Worth for a visit and will bring me back to NYC with him. We don’t know when but the rules state that the warden has 2 days to let me go after he receives the order so it could be as early as Friday or a few days more. Whatever it is, I can’t stop crying tears of Joy !! I can’t stop thinking of all the marvelous people worldwide who made this happen know because each of you played an integral role. My daughter Z is already lining up Sloan Kettering and we will have to see if there is a probation qualification attached to the Order and how it will affect me. After that Ralph will start making arrangements to rent Yankee Stadium for the Welcome Home… Smile

So If this reaches you before midnight tonight raise a glass of bubbly to the joy of all of us that the old girl is OUT !!

Love Struggle,

Thank goodness, at last. I'm glad I wrote letters on Lynne Stewart's behalf. Thanks and Kudos to everyone who did - I'm sure that had its effect.
Keep writing for other Political Prisoners. Amnesty International has some addresses - and others for specific individuals can be found on the Internet.
As you see here, writing letters and postcards and sending e-mails, and making telephone calls, and rounding up your friends to do the same, DOES have its effect - in many cases.

Writing even ONE letter, has an impact. A letter is an object, not just an electronic blip like an e-mail, and I think it has literally and figuratively a "weight" that is harder to ignore!
Writing letters and postcards is not yet obsolete!

So did I as well, Barbara,even if only as emails but self composed and I am CONVINCED our letters made an impact! As for the AI action for foreign detainees-most are bouncing back b/c blocked. Can't send snail mail :(

She is RELEASED! Is a good way to start the year. When we, as Human Beings, stand up on behalf of our sisters and brothers who suffer social injustices.....we might not be successful for all but for those we are it means the world for them.

Beyond joy was Lynne Stewart's words.
