There's no place for death row in our civilized society. Reconciliation is long lasting and effective in helping a perpetrator of violent crimes make amends. It takes courage to create this kind of peace and it's the only real and lasting solution.
We need to model Nonviolent Living and develop new patterns of working out our differences. Many of us call ourselves a "Christian" nation when it's convenient to be Christian. But when the rubber hits the road, we turn again and again to violence. Where in the Bible does Jesus model that approach?
We need to give our children a new legacy of respect and strength to dialogue and move beyond our limitations of prejudice, fear and conditioning.
