On Monday, Lauryn Hill began serving her three-month sentence for tax evasion. She’s currently in Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, CT, and a message from Ms. Hill has been relayed through her Tumblr. It reads:

Ms. Hill has received a lot mail, and would like to let everyone know that she is doing well.  She also asked me to pass along this message:

“I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials.  Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor I have encountered while in here, and general warm reception from a community of people who despite their circumstances, have found unique ways to make the best of them.  Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day.  Although I may not be able to write everyone back, please know that they have been received, read, acknowledged, and appreciated.With Love back, MLH”
