Prison ID Number: 06-XXXXX*
What does your prison ID number mean to you?
“The number is to strip you of your identity, right? They use numbers to strip you of your identity, of your name.
“But, I never viewed it that way. I never viewed my number as demeaning me. I paid no mind. The number was just something to identify me, but it doesn't define who I am.
“The number never defined who I was.”
*Not his real number.
