Pranis likens restorative justice to a kaleidoscope: the images vary, but they come from the same pieces. The images of restorative justice change but always come from the core elements of restorative justice. With this metaphor in view, she offers a number of concrete examples of victims, offenders, and communities dealing with crime or other trauma through restorative principles and processes.
