The Ripple Effects of Crime

February 28, 2022

Through the Sycamore Tree Project course, I developed a better understanding of the ripple effects of crime. I now embrace the feelings of regret toward my crimes because I accept the responsibilities of my actions. I am sorry for the pain and shame that my actions have caused my sister and the victims of my crime. I hope to make amends with my victim once I am finished serving my sentence.
