Seeing with new eyes.

A re-visioning of justice is both an incredible
concept, as well as a very appropriate theme
for Restorative Justice Week. A new vision of
justice is what many of us long for as we work
and walk with individuals who have been
impacted by crime. We long for a justice that
can hear and honour the cries of those who
have experienced victimization, while at the
same time, acknowledge the needs of those
who have offended. We long for justice that
leads to opportunities for healing and moving
forward instead of increased pain and brokenness. (excerpt)
