I mean it’s an adjustment compared to where I came from. If you knew where I came from, you would see this is a struggle, it’s an adjustment. It’s something I’m gonna need help with. But I got people around me trying to guide me in the right direction. When I came out August 27, I could see how much things have advanced, technology, from 1976 to 2020. Technology has taken control of a whole lot of things. And jobs, people are now being replaced by technology.

I got to roll with the punches. But compared with where I’ve come from, I’ll deal with the ups and downs all day instead of those ups and downs inside those institutions. - Ronnie

A CT6. A Cadillac. I want it straight off a car lot, brand new. I’m only kidding, but I will accept it under the tree. - Ronnie

Hey there, this is Ronnie Long here and I’m ready to take your questions about the 44 years I spent in prison as an innocent man, and my life now that I’m out. I’ll be here for the next hour.

I mean, getting the recognition that I deserve for being treated unjustly by a system that is corrupt and toxic. Here in North Carolina, you’re talking about a system that thinks it’s above the law. Right now, the biggest pain I’m trying to adjust to is survival. That’s the biggest things I’m dealing with, trying to make a living for me and my family. With the pardon I just got from the governor, that did alleviate some of the stress and tension, with me being able to live as a productive citizen. - Ronnie

I’ve always wanted to see certain parts of the world. But, if I’ve got to fly or I got to take a boat to get there I don’t have any business going there. I was just in Ohio, people booked us in an exclusive hotel. We went up and got on the 11th floor. I had to close all the windows, I didnt’ want to look out the window. I’m scared of heights, I can’t swim. Man is meant to be land. If God intended me to be in the water or in the sky, he’d have given me gills or wings. I’d like to see Miami, New York. Ft. Lauderdale. I would like to be in Rio De Janeiro for Carnival . I’ve been to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, I was there in 1974 or 1975. - Ronnie
