It's easy to say Diana Guevara shouldn't have hung out with the gang members who controlled her impoverished barrio on the outskirts of Guatemala City. However, immense poverty and lack of opportunities bred loneliness and despair and gangs seemed to provide the only available safety net. Sadly, Diana paid a high price for her involvement, exacted by her fellow gang members. It is moving past that tragedy that has helped Diana develop her inner strength and create alliances that truly break her isolation.
