Eastern State Draft

But I could feel the misery and insanity of this place and it was suffocating. It's only a place which made people want to keep away from. Eastern State Penitatiary seemed like a place to cause someone to go mad rather than teach them to reflect. 

I see how everyone lived and cannot imagine how they managed to stay alive—the conditions this place holds serves to no ones sustainability to survive. Eastern State Penitentiary now looks the way it made the prisoners feel: empty, broken, and alone. The endless and repeating days are terrible. For prisoners inside, it’s not much different: no freedom, isolated, frustrating, desperate and somehow made the lonely people more aggressive. It seems prisoners became more like objects to be placed somewhere than people who needed reforming.

It is ridiculous and useless. Why are these visitors visiting?
