"this camp brings out the very best in brothers
or destroys them entirely.
but none are unaffected.
none who leave here are normal.

if i leave here alive, i'll leave nothing behind.

They'll never count me among the broken men,
but i can't say that i am normal either.
i've been hungry too long.
i've gotten angry too often.
i've been lied to and insulted too many times.

They've pushed me over the line from which
there can be no retreat. i know they will not be
satisfied until they've pushed me out of this
existence altogether."

-George Jackson,
Soledad Brother
