Homicide > William's writings
This is William Benjamin Jenkins, a sixteen year-old homicide victim, and this page is dedicated to his memory. He wrote this poem, "And We Are All Idiots." You can see for yourself from reading his works that the world has lost an insightful and caring person. We would like to thank his father for giving us permission to celebrate William's Spirit by sharing this poem with you here.
And we are all idiots
by William Benjamin Jenkins
I know nothing of good or evil or the reason
behind the horrors of man
