Just over a month ago, DigElog ROCORI had the chance to interview a local connection to the film Milk. Growing up with severe disabilities in Richmond, Gerard Dols contacted Harvey Milk (the main character in Milk) in regards to potentially running away to California.
Shortly after Dols moved to California, Harvey Milk was shot and killed. It was at that time that Dols began to do a great deal of soul-searching. He realized that he wanted to make a change in his life and opened his heart up to Jesus. In this final interview with Chaplain Dols, he discusses his re-birth and what he is doing to make a difference in others' lives.
