I heard that 2.3 million is about 1% of our population.. sad and shocking.

I have been involved in prison and jail visitation for the last 5+ years.. these folks are not all that different from you and me.. they made some of the same mistakes we make.. often the difference is that they made those mistakes to the extreme.. and they were caught.

Imprisonment is a huge problem for our country.. we jail more people than any other country.. I think that we need to rethink our legal system.

Happy Sunday!
