My cousin's back in prison again. He got out after five years due to assault and battery and no place would hire him, so he started selling drugs to pay the rent. He got caught with 22 pounds of pot in his car on the way to California.

There's a big part of me that wonders if he'd be in this situation if I'd tried to reach out to him more. Wrote to him, sent him money, anything. But there's a part of me that carries the weight of my mother's family trauma on my shoulders--I can't connect to my extended family. I don't want to. But... I did like him, sometimes.

It just makes me sad.
