Aaron Hernandez may be limited in how much he can rehabilitate his image while in jail, but he seems to be giving it a decent try with the letters he’s writing from his cell. Three letters from Hernandez, who appears to be writing in response to fans, have now been made public. Hernandez has asked (honestly or not) that the letters remain private, but they’ve become his best way of trying to bring back the good-guy public image he built before his sudden fall from grace in June, when he was charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd. In his letters, Hernandez has talked about his purported faith, said he’s innocent and reiterated that he’s a good guy. In his latest letter, posted by Radar Online, Hernandez writes about being a father. Hernandez talked about being a changed man after his daughter was born last November, and he used his most recent letter from jail to share his thoughts about her as he awaits his time in court. Check out the text of Hernandez’s letter below. Collin, Hey brotha, let me start by saying thanks for the support, it definitely means alot! Everything happens for a reason in life in both of our situations. Whatever obstacles/struggles will only make us stronger. We actually have something in common because my dream as a kid was to play in NBA an is still my favorite sport but had a better chance in football! Never be down from your incident because “God” has a plan before all of us & that’s why I’ll never be down! Stay away from all negative people so your always there for your little boy cuz I miss by little girl terribly an my biggest fear of all is she wont know daddy! She said daddy first time or should I say “DaDa” and had to hear it from jail. Im going fine but wanted to write you and definitely wanted to say thanks for the support! Hope to hear back from you if wanted! Please keep this private is all I ask! Thanks again, Aaron 81 P.S. Im a great dude don’t believe all the neg. publicity please! *Media is the Negative of the fame! Stay up and keep a smile on that babys face & Be there for him! Thanks again brotha!
