Happy Birthday Bradley! Write him a letter of support!

Let Bradley know you care! Write him a letter of support for his 25th birthday – his third behind bars.

By the Bradley Manning Support Network. December 6th, 2012.

Bradley Manning will turn 25 on December 17th. It will be his third birthday in prison without trial. His court martial is scheduled for March, 2013.

Military whistle-blower Bradley Manning will turn 25 on December 17th. It will be his third birthday in prison, and by the time his court martial begins it will have been almost three years in prison: one year of which in the Quantico marine brig, where he was held in solitary confinement against the recommendations of mental health professionals. His trial is scheduled to start next March, and he needs our support. Please take a few minutes to mail Bradley a birthday message, and to send a gift to his Defense Fund.

Bradley can receive mail at the following address:

Commander, HHC USAG
Attn: PFC Bradley Manning
239 Sheridan Ave, Bldg 417
JBM-HH, VA 22211

Visit this link to read about mail restrictions.

Bradley’s lawyer David Coombs recent spoke publicly for the first time. He said that Bradley is one of the smartest, most caring young men he’s ever met, and he also talked about Bradley’s future dreams and goals:

“And [Bradley] told me that his dream would be to go to college, go into public service, and perhaps one day, run for public office.  And I asked Brad, why would he want to do that? And he said, ‘I want to make a difference. I want to make a difference in this world.'”

Please take some time before December 17 to show Bradley that you are thinking of him, and appreciate his efforts to hold US government officials accountable by informing the American public. In addition to mailing him a birthday message and donating to his Defense Fund, you can also take a photo holding a “Happy birthday Bradley Manning!” sign and e-mail it to [email protected]. We will compile photos to share on our website, and send them to Bradley as well.

  1. Happy Birthday Bradley! I am sorry you haven’t been able to spend it with your family. But you know, God is always with you. I just want to say I believe that they had no reason to take you and that our Government is very corrupt and more so everyday. If you haven’t heard almost 30 states want out of the union since this year election. Yes it is very sad and scary what is happening to America. Good to know that there are people like you, one who try to make a difference for the better! Sadly there are more people like you also locked up and hidden in fear they might leak something out about the Government. If you think about it, it’s kinda twisted how our Government has any secrets at all, because, shouldn’t we the people be the Government? Well I hope that your day was a good one as far as good can go for being locked up. God bless and Jesus loves you! :D

    • Like many bright people, Bradley Manning is an atheist, so out of respect for his beliefs, please don’t try to push religion on him. His correspondence with Zinnia Jones before his arrest makes this clear.

      • Jean, don’t get your panties in a bunch. Victoria didn’t seem to push anything; please do not try to ostracize a supporter simply because their warm wishes included something religious. It is not “disrespectful” to say “God bless and Jesus loves you,” nor is it pushing an agenda.

  2. Hi Brad, I wish you a Happy Birthday even this year. Very sorry that you are in prison. I understand that you want to study and make a difference in the world. Good luck with that. I say that you are already making a big differnce in the world by your way of standing up to opression. If you did supply all this WL stuff, I thank you. May life be better to you in the future.
    Regards, Art Ross, Sweden.

  3. I have been contributing small amounts to your defense fund, small only because I am in my eighties and on a fixed income. I have been following your case and your sufferings since the beginning, and though your birthday can hardly be happy, I do want to say that you have my hopes and my best wishes and my admiration for what you have suffered. I applaud your actions in releasing information that the public has every right to know, and hope that before your 26th birthday, you will have won your case and be living the life you have said you want to live.
    I applaud your actions and feel ashamed of the military for having punished you even before a trail, and hope you will be free very soon.

    With love and support,

  4. I hope you know that many people support you and we need more honest, moral people like you. I am sorry that you cant be with your family during this time, but you are gaining a HUGE family throughout America and the world. Your truthfulness is putting a face to our corrupt government. God bless and be with you. Have faith, people like us will ensure your freedom.

  5. happy birthday dear ..wish u all the best,,this is an Iraqi woman who lost a lot in this damn war,,and eventually had to leave my beloved country ..my friends,,my beloved job..just wana tell you we are so proud of u..do not feel ashamed at all no matter how others say to u…u didn’t betray your country,,,they should be proud of u,,because the war wasn’t suppose to be like this..u came for a purpose but other ignorant ruthless people had other intentions..I hope u will be out soon

  6. Happy Birthday, you brave young man. Thank you so much for doing the absolutely right thing! Those who persecute you are afraid of the truth. Stay strong for the people of the Earth! (( HUG ))

  7. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRADLEY. I’M SO SORRY OUR GOVERNMENT CHOOSES TO OPPRESS YOU, AND CONSEQUENTLY, ALL OF US BECAUSE IT FEARS TO BE REIGNED IN.

  8. Bradley, wishing you a happy day for your Birthday. We know what is going on, we want you to be freed. I deeply appreciate your incredible sacrifice and what you have done to help Americans clean up their act so we can be proud of our whole country. We are very proud of you and your historical acts of bravery and integrity.

  9. yooooOo! Happy birthdaaay brooo!!! xD

  11. Hey man, happy birthday from, well.. we don’t know each other. but still, i’ve been following some of the reports which hit the media front. Crazy stuff. I’m not really taking any sides, although I still don’t support any opposition against your right to freedom and innocence. I hadn’t realized you’re 6 years younger than me. I’ve been rather looking up to you, although seeing you as even younger, it makes me wonder really how this all came about. Ok, you’re not that young to forfeit a trial, but still, man it’s such an incredible injustice. You’re not alone sadly, but I’m also not alone in saying that I support your freedom. There’s a neat artist called Leon Golub, well, i mean from the images of his work which I came across, where fairly profound, that anyone could find themselves in confinement. I dunno, perhaps I’m writing drab, if so I apologize. But humanly speaking, from my position, man I hope you don’t lose faith and hope… people will continuously come back to your aid, even after any dark hours, people are supporting you. I’m not sure what kinds of access you have to media where ever you are, media’s such a mystery to me. From what I have just now, if you can check out the band happy birthday (on sub pop records) – track name: subliminal message. Good luck getting back to us! and have a great birthday if possible!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7xB-nhKCAQ

  12. It is with a heavy heart that I comment here.I will write you a letter to show that your birthday means a celebration of your birth.I am very upset at what has happened to you, for you sacrifice and duty to our country and our Constitution.I was in Task Force Ranger Somalia, 2nd BN, A co.and I know what it is like to make contact with the people.
    You are not left behind.-Darrel

  13. You will always be a hero to us. Wishing you the best possible birthday despite your unjust incarceration.

    You are our hero Bradley Manning, have the happiest birthday possible in your situation.

    Best wishes,

  15. Happy Birthday, Bradley.

    I hope you will celebrate your next birthday in freedom!

    Your actions deserve the highest praise; your plight – the utmost sympathy.

    The US government must realise that they have imprisoned a true American whose conscience goes beyond what he is instructed to do, and whose ideals exactly match those on which the American state was founded: Rights of individuals and preservation of life.

    Hold on there! Time is dragging slow in prison, but you’ll be out, just hold on!

  16. Happy Birthday Bradley! Just know that there are many many liberty minded people thinking about you and keeping you in our prayers. We are grateful that you have stood up for what you believe is right bringing light to a dark place and you should know you are an inspiration for many. Bet of wishes for your birthday and every other day, You are in our prayers.

  17. Bradley Manning . . . We don’t know each other, but you have changed our lives forever through your courageous action of exposing our government’s corrupt actions. You are a military hero, and a citizen hero. You are the first in the ranks of a new army of citizen-soldiers, ones who fight for their people, not for the government that belongs to a few rich billionaires.

  18. Acknowledging your quarter century, Brad. It would be stupid to say “Happy Brithday.” I sincerely hope you will be spending your next birthday with your loved ones.

  19. Happy Birthday, Bradley! I join your thousands of supporters in wishing you a good day and a better year. If only you could hear us all cheering for you. Stand tall–we are standing with you!

  20. Happy Birthday Bradley, My grandfather was a professional soldier in the British cavalry regiment, the 18th Hussars.Now reformed as an armoured regiment the 13th Hussars. He attested at Aldershot a very young age and served in India. The fully operational regiment was one of the first to arrive in South Africa after the Boer War began. The British began to use the army to lock up Boer women and children whose husbands were either fighting, or in prison of war camps, or died fighting for their freedom. The 18th Hussars, every man jack, as a regiment refused to become involved in the rounding up of civilians, especially women and children to be imprisoned. They defended this stance, when hauled before Lord Roberts, that they were a fighting regiment and could not tarnish the colours of their flag by carrying out the unlawful order to conduct war upon civilians and that such order was outside the scope of their duty. They further argued that not one of the incumbents had signed up in the army to do such work. Furthermore that this was not what their forefathers had fought for and would bring disgrace to their flag. Roberts wisely let it slide to avoid a scandal in England and also to prevent dissension in the ranks of the lesser regiments who were carrying out these orders. 90,000 civilian women and children eventually died in these concentration camps. Bradley Manning iyou doing what the 18th Hussars did. You are standing up for the honourable and proud traditions of the American people and your parents and are exposing the military bullies.

  21. Happy birthday Bradley, please take strength from knowing a large part of the world is behind you and sees you as a hero for what you did. You are only a young man and if you can get through this you will be a strong person with much to contribute to our world and have your whole life in front of you. I feel positive that Obama cannot maintain his silence and lack of action on this much longer – it goes against his nature and although he is being dictated to by vested interests in the military I have a feeling he is working behind the scenes to get you out of this situation. Or otherwise something is going to move very soon for you. I hope I am right. Our thoughts are with you.

  22. Happy Birthday Bradley! There are CONSTANT POSTINGS and updates regarding your situation on FB. I, together with millions of people, am utterly outraged at the inhuman treatment you have had to endure at the hands of a country that is supposed to represent freedom! It is shameful and one hopes that the powers that be in your country can find the strength of humanity and character (that you have so clearly displayed) to do the HONOURABLE THING AND RELEASE YOU forthwith!!!!!!

    Only you know the depths to which you have had to dig to find the strength to survive this ordeal. And, as isolated as you are, you are NOT ALONE.

    best wishes

    Helge Janssen = South Africa

  23. Aloha Bradley,
    people can take your body in jail, but not your heart, your soul and your love. the heart creates a timeless field. a lot people in this world feel with you and support your heartfield whereever you are. don`t give up, you are a good men and you are stronger like the most around of you. i hope this people get it soon, that you are a nobel prize winner without a medal. i wish you happy birthday bradley.

  24. Happy Birthday brother, may the universe see your plight. Your maverick style is what the greedy governments of this world are afraid of. This is the only reason you are in prison, they are afraid of what you know and the only way they can protect the truth is to keep you locked up. We are with you in spirit and we wish for your release, if we are to have a humanitarian world we need to expose the corruption by ruthless governments.

  25. Dear Bradley,
    I just want to send you a big birthday hug, you are an example for many of us around the world and may you just always be proud of yourself. I hope that things will eventually sort out. Thank you.

  26. Felicidades Brad! I am writing you from Catalonia, Spain, wishing you a very happy birthday and hoping that you will soon be free to live life as you choose, and as you so deserve. In my eyes you are a hero, certainly not a criminal. Stay strong and positive and know that your fight for truth gains momentum every day! Thank you for your very brave heart.

  27. Dear Bradley,
    Your birthday comes at a time when many voices are crying out for your release! I can’t fathom where such a young man gets such courage,strength,morals and is living and acting out the courage of your convictions. You are a hero in your country,a testament to your parents and inspiration to us all.
    As an Australian I thank you on behalf of Julian Assange. The Australian government has left him with only you standing between him and your governments desire to punish him for publishing ; and thank god it’s you. None of these morally bankrupt politians have an ounce of the gumption or ethics you have shown. I have stood with other Australians handing out information about your plight and trying to get pressure put on our government to put pressure on yours. We stand with you, you are not alone, you are not forgotten and people across the world are fighting for you. Enjoy this knowledge on your birthday .

  28. Happy birthday, Bradley! I wish life brings you fairness as a gift (it’s not you who should be in prison) and you be free very soon. We all need more people like you. I wish you the best of lucks. Regards and hughs from Spain!

I do say Happy birthday because it’s something to celebrate that a man like you is alive and celebrating his quarter-century living his truth. Wish you all the best in your ongoing struggle to let the truth be free, and may you look back on this time in the future with the absolute knowledge that it made you stronger.

    I hope you get freedom soon, and have the force to support yorself.
    You are a reference for young people in this perverse democracy.

  40. Thank you so much Bradley for all your courage. You’re living in the tradition of the Founding Fathers in standing up to tyranny and injustice.

  42. Dear Bradley,

    Happy 25th Birthday young man! Hang in there! You have the support of millions worldwide. You’re a great American for exposing injustice in our foreign policy. And those who have maligned and hurt you shall one day regret it. This is our firm belief. And one more thing is don’t lose hope. Someday you’ll walk out of prison under a beautiful blue sky, to live the rest of your precious life a free man.

  44. Happy Birthday Bradley! More importantly, thank you. The world owes you a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid. You are a true hero and will always be right up there with Nelson Mandela and all those who have taken a stand for freedom, honesty and integrity. Good wishes from Canada and please know that we will do everything we can to free you and honour you.

  45. Happy 25th Birthday, Bradley-

    Stay strong and may sanity prevail as soon as possible and release you.

  47. Happy B day Brad;

    some day others will come around to realize you are the hero and not the villain…it’s the nature of politics unfortunately. until then keep your light strong under the bushel.

    your friend always,

  48. Happy Birthday Bradley! You are an American hero, representing the United States in an admirable task.
    I am so proud that you stood up to the corruption in the U.S. military and exposed its mistakes to public light.
    Your bravery will be viewed by history as one of the most difficult, far-reaching efforts to create a lasting peace. Never doubt that we believe in you and that your actions have inspired and affected the future of millions globally.

  49. Dear Bradley,
    I put my name as John Hancock, only to remind you of how your name will be added to a long list of true patriots of an idea of freedom. Others are ready to stand up to this out of control government of lies. Stay strong in mind, body and soul brother!!! Truth will set you free!! Always! Thank You for having the courage to do the right thing. Respectfully and praying for your speedy release,

    Vincent Munoz

  50. Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas Brad! Don’t ever give up, and remember, doing the right thing is never the wrong thing to do.

  51. Dear Bradley

    It is hard to find words to express the gratitude that I and so many others feel for what you have done and so bravely continue to do. “Thank you” just doesn’t sound enough for the sacrifices you have made and continue to make.

    You are a beacon of courage and honesty who has arisen from the corruption of the US military-industrial complex. If only there were more who had as much guts as you do.

    But, although you are only one person, you have sent ripples of inspiration around the world. You have made a real difference to the world in which we live.

    May God bless you in all that you do, and THANK YOU, THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart.

  54. We love you Bradley Manning. So many around the world were helped by information, government should not act in secret in our name. You have paid enough for this act.

  55. Happy birthday Bradley, be and stay strong! We need more people like you in this world… To inform the masses the truth!! You are a hero!

  58. Dear Bradley,

    You are a beacon of hope, courage and freedom for humanity. You have many supporters here in the UK and throughout the world. Please stay strong because one day you will be free and you will have done more than most towards ending this brutal tyranny that the world is facing today.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you my friend.
    All the best
    Joe from the United Kingdom

  59. happy bday and thank you for the sacrifice you gave for Justice. Once the UN gives you freedom you will be free to really talk about the past few years of your life and really expose these people for who they are.

  60. There are many things one can do to better this world. You have chosen to be a hero in your own right, by exposing the lies and truths.

    Most people feel incapacitated and don’t know how to make a big difference, so vicariously through you, a person who has the guts to face this horrible reality, they feel vindicated. Thank you!

    We can only hope that this difficult trial in your life will help you become a bigger human being with even more potential.

    I have just discovered that our birthdays are only one day apart, so let me take this opportunity to say we love you bradley and may you have the peace and love you so deserve, on your birthday and every other day!

  61. You are the son every parent dreams of having. Your moral courage at the tender age of 21 sets you apart from other youths your age. Your parents have certainly given the world a gift in you. Happy 25th Birthday.

  62. Hi Bradley
    I am organising a protest/demonstration in London American Embassy 17th December re your birthday.
    Arrangements are being made at present..

    With you in spirit.
    Gerry Bradley

  63. You are an inspiration in so many ways to so many people. We are always thinking of you and somehow wrestle to find a way for you to feel that support. Be well, be loved and peace at heart.

  64. Bradley, you show us why the rest of the world hates America. Then America went and covered it up and detained you, proving themselves scum yet again. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t an attack at the citizens. The government and their followers rather. You have an amazing heart and detaining you only makes these fuckers look worse then they did the day you released documents. Hang in there, the world is behind you. You did a vey courageous thing, knowing it was the right thing to do. You ARE the most powerful person on earth right now.

  65. Happy 25th birthday to you Bradley !!! My wish for you is freedom. Your truths were the effort to set all of Americans free with truth and I want to thank you for that. Stay wise and strong there are many working to free you right now and we all hope this will happen soon. Morning Star

  66. Your life’s investment of time and energy has made more of difference in creating world peace than nearly anyone else in any other time. I am sad for your incarceration, but thank you deeply for your commitment.

    Again, thank you.

  68. Happy Birthday. May you be granted freedom, may you be blessed with sound health. What you have done requires tremendous courage. Thank you for your example. A light in the dark. I think of you all the time, you are the bravest person I know.

  69. Bradley,
    I hope all the mail and best wishes you are receiving give you a lift on your birthday!
    As others have said already, I see you as a hero – standing up for justice and right and being persecuted for it. I trust in Jesus’ words, “Blessed are you when they persecute you for justice sake…” I hope your reward and freedom come soon! (and I’m an old geezer starting his 80th yearl!)

  71. The truth is so important as is staying true to your heart and being proactive. Amazing strength, selflessness and integrity you have shown. Unimaginable what it must be like for you… rest knowing you are trying your best and following your heart and standing up for justice. :-)

  72. Happy Birthday to you Bradley from Spain!!!
    We all admire and respect you around here for your courage. The world is in debt with you.
    Thank you, thank you!

  73. Sgt Bradley Manning. Thank goodness for the people who are providing you all the love and support possible.

    You will know Howard Petrick who wrote and delivers his one-man play, “Breaking Rank”. He performed it at the Fringe Theatre Festival in my home town of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. It was the best, and a great addition to the awareness level of your situation.

    We have Omar Khadr here in Canada, who was put in US military prisons at the age of 15, recently (finally) moved by the Harper Govt from Guantanamo back to Canada. Another terrible breach of International, Canadian and American law.

    Good people everywhere are standing up and speaking out. Hopefully it will be enough, eventually.

    Bless you, and Happy Birthday.

  74. Dear Bradley Manning, Praying for you everyday. You are a hero. Telling of WAR CRIMES and people being killed in the name of WARS..EVEN BABIES. I THINK OF ALL THE JEWS killed by Hitler..My Lord, how many more would have been murdered if it were not for the people who told of this insanity…..I AM ashamed that someone who comes forward and tells the truth of these atrositys,,is then charged…Our Government has no shame..they do not want the truth to come out..WHY IS BEYOND ME BECAUSE THEY NEVER PROCECUTE THE PEOPLE WHO COMMIT THESE WAR CRIMES….THERE IS NO JUSTICE FOR ALL…………

  75. Happy birthday Bradley! We stand with you,we are watching and we don’t stand for injustice

  76. Happy BD Bradley. I wish I were 1/10th as brave as you. I hope you do run for a high political position and win. We need people like you in the higher realms of government. Best of luck with all your future dreams. Thanks for all you’ve done to allow we the people know that the USA has wandered off from the dreams of its founders. God bless you always.

  77. Dear Bradley

    Don’t lose hope, your sacrifice will be rewarded in more ways than you can imagine.

  78. Hello! I wish you a happy birthday!
    Thank you for what you’ve done, it was the right thing to do.
    I think you have already made more difference than what most people can accomplish in a lifetime. But I think your quote ‘I want to make a difference. I want to make a difference in this world. ‘”And whith your bold actions, you can inspire others to stand up for what is right. Tanks for the hope of a better world.
    Once again congratulations on your birthday, from Sweden

  79. You are behind bars but your conscience is as free as could be. You are the proof that human race still can conceive heroes. So young, only 25, yet so brave that someday kids will want to be you. My wish for your birthday is that you reach that day free not only in your soul but also physically.
    Congratulations!

When the world becomes transparent and countries have nothing to hide from each other we will have at last found peace! You have helped begin this process. When I wrote the dedication in my book– Lynn and Joe A Winter Solstice Tale– I had you in my mind. You can read it in the preview on Amazon. Please stay strong, we need you.
    Sincerely, Lynn Danielle

  96. Happy Birthday Bradley, You are the definition of the word ‘Hero’ Even here in the UK , There is huge support. Keep your head up sir

  97. Hi mate, hope you are holding up okay. Your autobiography will sell well, so make sure you’re working on that already, I bet you are :) I’ll be sure to follow your case and be rooting for you the whole while. A lot of people are idiots, but they will get what’s coming to them eventually. Take care x

  99. Happy Birthday Mr. Manning. You are a true American Hero in the eyes of the American citizens you served. You will go down in history as one of the great true Americans and those who try to prosecute, silence, and punish you will down down in history as the vial scum of a corrupt America that’s time has come as the truth will always prevail. Happy Birthday. If only Obama kept his word about having the most transparent government in history. In the future, his family will hold their heads in shame.

  100. Peace and Courage to you. As a young man, I didn’t grasp the concept of time. I thought the future never came. Well, it does, and now as an older and wiser man, I can tell you that you will survive this, and you will live in freedom, it will come. I honor you.

  101. I hope this message gets to you somehow Bradley. I wish you a Happy Birthday and My prayers go out to you for a release from your prison. I know in my heart as an ex soldier certain things happen that we don`t always agree with. But I have never stopped believing you did the right thing all these years.I have said many prayers in the past for your well being. Keep your heart strong and your mind clear of any wrong doing. I hope one day i can shake your hand and offer you a hug. In my heart your a true hero!

  102. From us all at SOS-NEWS we wish you a very happy birthday Bradley you have done the free world proud. We hope your accusers see justice done at your court marshal before justice find them.

  103. Happy 25th Birthday Bradley. You are not forgotten and will go down in history not as a traitor but as a hero, IF history is written correctly.

    But in God’s book, you are a hero – and that is what matters.

    Where other “men” simply follow orders, any orders, you showed true moral courage even at the expense of your own safety.

    I would be proud to call you my son.

    You are a true son of Liberty and truth.

    Happy Birthday.

  104. Happy Birthday, Bradley. I can’t put into words the amount of respect I have for you. You are a great American. Thank you for your courage and your sacrifice.

  105. Keep strong, i find it hard to find the words to express my gratitude and respect for you,
    Thank you and the very best of luck.

  106. Happy Birthday, Bradley. You are a hero to me and the rest of the world. Please take heart. You will triumph. Thank you for standing up for what is right and good.

  107. I’m glad you were born all those years ago. You have proven to the world there are risks faced by those researching and reporting the truth that needs to be researched and reported to the world. You have paid the travesty of injustice for all to see for doing the right thing. The United States People owe you a debt of gratitude. You are a true military man, and have performed EXEMPLARY SERVICE to the true United States. Not to the US Aggression which is a group behind the stage who have hijacked our government offices and are guilty of genocide for the purpose of theft and corrupt power. Afraid of anything resembling transparency.

  108. Happy Birthday Bradley.
    You are a brave and courageous person in standing up for the truth. Stay strong in your fight for justice. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  109. Happy Birthday Bradley
    My son is your age, I hope he will never need to show his courage the way you did, but I hope he would do the same if he could.
    You must feel very proud of yourself.

    Thank you.

  110. Hello Bradley,

    You are the conscience of millions of people around the world. I salute your bravery. Through torture you never lost sight of the truth and went far above and beyond the call of duty. Our president can never reach the high standard of morality you set. Hopefully more of our soldiers will be as heroic and come forward with the truth. Know that most of the world stands with you.

    Happy Birthday Bradley,
    Joe Mungai

  111. Kia Kaha Bradley, the road to freedom and to a free society is a long and bitter journey, you have my support in this unjust imprisonment, by a so called democratic state.

  112. So there was a lag on facebook in learning about your birthday, but you have a lot of supporters out there. Happy belated birthday and keep hope. The Light always wins!!!

  113. Dear Bradley,
    Dont lose faith – you are in good company. Remember Mandela imprisoned for standing up for truth, and Gandhi also. You are one of the ‘light warriors’ of our time, and your life has meaning. Your struggle has helped to publicise the crimes committed by governmnets afraid of truth. Sending you much respect, support, and love. Thank you for being one of the good guys. xoxoxoxox

  114. You shouldn’t be incarcerated but take heart that some really good purpose will come out of your unjust imprisonment that will serve many people

  115. Happy belated birthday to you, Bradley. I’ll add you to my prayers. You are my hero, along with my Savior Jesus. Have a very blessed Happy Birthday Jesus Day as well:)

    a good one and that you got my
    x-mas card.Also that you’re doing OK under the circumstances.Surely you know of the cadre of supporters that are out here for you (and Julian).
    The TRUTH has to WIN above all…The world needs more folks like you two guys…
    Most Sincerely, Leeza V
