Take Time To Enjoy This Life, Ask Why We Punish #16
Is it because we are lazy???
Instead of five, 10, 15 years in prison, why can’t we set up a program and facilities in which the “guilty” young person receives LOVE, and appreciation? A program that helps him to accept the fact that,
I am better than most and equal to the rest, but somewhere there is someone better than me. I do not have to force Myself and my ideas on another Human.
A program that respects the “guilty” young person while helping him to discover things he actually likes to do, that are worthy and bring happiness to others, things to be proud of because others appreciate them and him.
A program that makes them feel good to be part of as an equal, appreciated, respected for themselves person. Constantly reminding them, ‘I am better than most and . . .’
This will cost less than keeping them in prison.
Are we too Lazy ???
Nuff Said !!!
