When I was 18 years old, my mother was shot and killed in a convenience store robbery in New Orleans, changing every preconceived notion I had about the world and what it meant to feel safe. Twenty years later, I found my mother’s killer and forgave him, just before he died in the notorious Angola State Penitentiary. It was then that I realized
that I had been as much of a prisoner as he was.”                       
- Stephanie Cassatly
