PRISON REFORM

After the racially motivated killing of nine members of  the Emanuel African Methodist  Episcopal  Church, the terrorist was captured and incarcerated.  He is alive.

The surviving church members demonstrate their profound regard for their late pastor by delivering a familiar message of Christian conviction.  "No matter how compelling our urge for vengeance may be, healing begins when the unenlightened are forgiven by the enlightened."  In that enlightened spirit, what's next?

—Gretchen Nielsen
