In it, she said she feared she would never be able to return home again. Also asked said not to “forget me or the other U.S. nationals imprisoned there.”
Griner’s agent, Lindsay Kagawa Colas, said the letter was sent on Monday.

“On July 4, our family usually honors the memory of those who fought for our freedom. It includes my father, a Vietnam War veteran,” said the star player.
It saddens me to think about how I usually celebrate this holiday. Because freedom has a different meaning for me this year.
