Today I had an awesome experience! Ethan from circles and ciphers, a program that encourages talking through situations, came to visit us and led a circle. We went around and shared our own views on certain aspects of justice. I really had to think about my responses carefully and enjoyed listening to what others had to share. We first were asked what we define as a criminal. Previous to this week, my answer would have been simple; a criminal is someone who breaks the law. However, after these past few days my definition has evolved. I now define a criminal as a person who freely and consciously harms themselves or others. So many people who commit major crimes (ex:mass shootings) are mentally ill and I do not believe they are fully conscious of what they are doing when they commit the crime. Yes, I do believe that what they have done is terribly wrong, but at the same time we cannot lose the human being in the process of justice. Obviously, they need help and counseling, but at the same time need to be punished for their actions. Also, I do not believe drug use should necesarilly be punished simply by jail time. Addicts need counseling, and keeping them in jail without treating their sickness, only to let them out a few months or years later does not prepare them to re-enter society with all it’s triggers and temptations. This week has definitely been extremely informative. Not only have we learned about juvenile justice, but we also educated Erica (the dean of students at Carolton) on what a dandelion is! We went shopping on Michigan Avenue today and also visited the iconic bean. Plenty of pictures will be posted on facebook after this week! Our time here has consisted of plenty of learning, but also loads of fun. I cannot wait to see whats in store for tomorrow!

See you tomorrow,

Between your interactions with Ethan and your new found thoughts on true justice and how a criminal is defined, it seems that you have had a truly memorable experience. I can't wait to hear more upon your return.

Instead, Rick left the town nearly defenseless while he took off with most of the best warriors to undertake a pretty bad plan to rid the area of zombies. It’s another reckless move that makes me question both his judgment and his leadership. I don’t question whether he’s right. He may be too trigger happy, but Morgan is too quick to let bad people quite literally get away with murder.

There has to be a balance between being right and actually carrying out the right plan and being a good leader, and Rick is still too caught up in his own head and his own arrogance to strike that balance. This will almost certainly be a wake-up call for Deanna and the Alexandrians, but it should also be a wake-up call for Rick, who needs to understand what being a leader truly means.

What a great report.It is in stark contrast to the trash peddled by Eric Margolis in his misleading representation of Chinese intentions and his paean to the win-lose versus win-win mentality in international relations. obat sgpot sgpt tinggi
