One horrible, tragic act

It was a major challenge to my core beliefs when I found out that the majority of people I was working with inside San Quentin were in for homicide. I resist every single day thinking about them or calling them ‘murderers,’ because I think it reduces them to one horribly tragic act, but one act, and they are much more than that.
