I was and am horrified that police, the custodians of our morality, would place a young girl in a cell with men and leave her there to be abused and tortured.
I am also appalled that the men within the jail or prison would be no better than the police that placed her there.
This is what I mean, it never begins and ends in one place, in one moment. We sow the seeds.
I can only pray.
We are all a part of this shifting paradigm that causes this to occur, the jailers, the jailed, the young girl who we as society are charged to protect….we all do this together.
How do we then figure out a way out of this together? That is the question I am asking you today.
