    Thank you Matt for raising this issue.of forgiveness and the situation at our prisons and our prison system.Peaple who irk there tell me the biggest problem there is the lack of rehabilitation for those who are released when they have served their time but also the boredem that they experience while serving their time.
    Building bigger and more prisons is not the answer ,they tell me but to address these 2 problems would decrease their reentering time after time would.!
    I believe the Church could play a part in that ,by seeing the Peaple in there as human beings in need of love,acceptance ,forgiveness and help in those 2 areas mentioned.
    Bless you as you bring us the Unfake news.
