Thank you so much for these clips.

Each brought me to tears over the contrast between the wisdom and compassion shown here (and the results) vs. the punitive responses  to trauma I've witnessed in years working withing child welfare, criminal justice and domestic-violence intervention systems.

What a hopeful, inspiring, restorative vision!

I just wish I had an answer as to how to get others to see what for me is so obvious. I am glad someone can understand what is true.  Why are we criminalizing and hurting already hurt people whether they be homeless, have a mental illness or have an addiction or all three.  People in these situations never had it easy or they wouldn't be here.  I wish someone had that magic answer that would allow us to open closed eyes, hearts, and minds. It makes me cry too.
