    I see it every day. But somehow - and remember, I'm 17 years worth of burnout - it seems less that it did 10 years ago. Less intensity, fewer staff with that attitude. Just my judgement - but perhaps I see what want to see, what I'm looking for.

    And believe me, I know they are getting out and moving in next door to you and me! I see it happen every day, see former inmates at the malls and grocery stores. It motivates me to treat them humanely.

      Just for you to be self-doubting after 17 years is a tribute to you (or your training, or how your parents raised you, etc.)

      Everyone is unique, even those in prison.  They deserve a chance to learn from their mistakes.

      You sound pretty damn unique, too.
