Looking forward to your thoughts…
especially on Jena 6 (sounds like a pop band…, or the name of a star cruiser from Battlestar Galctica).
Great thoughts, Mike. I couldn’t agree more that justice must go beyond retribution to reconciliation and restoration. One problem is sometimes neither sides wants this. There is something in us that is more comfortable with our kind and creates a wall between others. Something has to change in us that wants to know the other, wants to see the world from their eyes rather than judge from our own limited perspective. I think we often are not humble enough to put aside our own perspective and love in a way the other experiences it. When we are close enough in daily life, then maybe love can stand a chance when bad stuff happens. I’d love to know how you guys are trying to build some of these bridges in Raleigh…Look forward to getting to know you more.
