TEXAS DEATH ROW NEWS FEBRUARY 21st 2021.
“Day by day, what you choose, what you think and what you do is who you become, “–Heraclitus,
In case you haven’t heard, Texas has had some cold weather! The low temperature was 6°F. (- 25° degrees below freezing), which caused the main water line to burst Tuesday night. This resulted in the Polunsky unit going without water for 34 days. I won’t go into the details, but I’m sure you can imagine what it was like, The arctic blast also caused us to have no mail service, incoming or outgoing all week long. This has never happened before on Polunsky unit, mercifully, we did not lose electricity so we had heat and lights.
Did I mention we’re in the middle of an emergency COVID19 medical lock down on Polunsky unit? It has been two weeks now, and the rumour is we will go back to the regular routine, hot meals, recreation and showers daily tomorrow. We shall see – but one thing is for sure, what is to be will be and I’m fine with that.
In spite of all this, I have survived. Not only survived but I thrive, more focused and determined than ever to live my best life. And here is why ~ suffering is universal and victimhood is optional. We don’t get to choose what happens to us, but we are in complete control of how we respond to it. And personally, I chose to be relentless. Relentless in my fight for freedom. Relentless in my pursuit of the number one goal in life, the completion of my transition into part II of my life, forever free and far away from Texas death row. I am focused on achieving this here, and I hope you are doing the same there where you are at. It is possible because we all have the power to choose how we respond. My response is to keep pushing forward – if I stumble, gather myself and get hack to pushing. I am able to do this because I accept all that is happening totally and completely and will continue to accept whatever happens until I reach my ultimate goal. Freedom and life after this Texas death row experience and acceptance is key in making it possible.

Today, I start a new journey which includes a vow to maintain “The Five Minute Journal.” Have you heard about it? If not check it out at www.intelligentchange.com. Briefly, it is 8 journal book where you commit to keeping a journal everyday and taking five minutes writing as soon as you wake up each morning, and writing for five minutes each night before you go to sleep. This book is amazing and I know by committing five minutes in the morning and five minutes before I go to sleep everyday it will help me manifest more positive change and growth in my life. And for me, that is what life is all about: growing and preparing for absolute success when I am at last in the free world. Everything else in life comes after reaching the ultimate goal.
I find it amazing that the Universe works completely on its own to send me what I need when I need it. Like this small book, I had no idea it existed, but my dear friend and spiritual advisor Glenna sent it to me because she wants me to make sure I have every tool available to succeed in life. And boy, has she outfitted me well! Glenna has sent me just about every great book that has changed my life, which is something that I’m forever grateful for. I am at full strength, have my focus and motivation back on point and it is full speed ahead. I’ve spent twenty-three years on Texas death row enrolled in the school of life. I have learned so much and now it is time to graduate, and break through into freedom and live the next fifty years of my life in free world. Yesterday is history.

n February 2, 2021, my legal team filed the new subsequent application for habeas writ appeal in the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. It is 826 pages in length, not counting exhibits. This super appeal is the game changer and will force the change in my life that we have worked so hard for. Soon it will be available on charlesdflores.com, so check the website if you are interested in reading it.
I feel a momentous shift in my life, one that comes with the year 2021 and I am ready for it. A great realization that I have had emphasized recently is that there is no such thing as luck in life. Only good runs and bad runs of, “the cards” that life deals us. My extraordinary long run of bad cards is over. The river of life has shifted and we’ve entered into a Great run of cards and with them we shall win especially in the legal arena where ultimately we’ll receive the relief this new appeal will create. Now is the time for getting ready for when that change is here at last.
FREEDOM SOON!! Charles D. Flores No:999299 , Texas death row, February 21st 2021.
