Can Forgiveness Play a Role in Criminal Justice?
January 18, 2013 -

What does it mean to forgive, under the heading of restorative justice, when it is your daughter who has been murdered. This story reflects the pain, the suffering, and the transformation of two families after a horrible, life-altering event.  Note its source; the New York Times managed to beautifully capture the many layers of the journey we talk about in RJ. An amazing forum for an incredible story.
