This morning I read the handbook which the Northwest Detention Center provides to all new detainees. Page 23 of this handbook contains the following remarkable passage:
Remember that a SITUATION doesn't make you FEEL any certain way. It is your THOUGHTS that make you feel the way you do. The fact that you are in detention does not mean you MUST feel anxious, worried, or depressed. It is your negative THOUGHTS about your situation that make you feel bad.
Ummm, wow. Thanks for the life lesson, Department of Homeland Security :)
