    Cold day... but at least no rain, so a long bundled up walk before dinner was nice.

    Community Research Restorative Justice
    How can Restorative Justice help foster the well-being of both people and planet?

    This is critical for me.  Punitive response to behavior whether in a school (suspension, expulsion) or in the wider world (jail time) does not teach the skills a person needs to make different choices or better understand the repercussions of their actions.  People do the best they can with the knowledge, skills and opportunities they've been afforded.  Restorative Justice is vital to our growing as a community (whatever community you may be referring to... family, classroom, city, etc.).

    Pretty well.  Having my brother and sister-in-law on the team is spurring me on.  Childhood sibling competitiveness lives on.

    This is an important area for understanding for me not only as a citizen in our evolving world, but as an educator fostering supportive and inclusive settings for students to feel safe, seen, heard and able to focus on learning.

    Keeping on top of actions and especially getting to the deeper work of one-time actions is harder on work days.  The email triggered me logging in during lunch.  That was helpful.  Added something related to this work to my to-do list for the day.  If it's not on the to-do list next to my computer... unlikely to happen M-F!

    How has the process of forgiving, or contemplating forgiveness, benefited you?

    resentment and anger are a load in your emotional backpack. forgiveness can lighten the load, make room for things I'd rather spend my time and energy on.
