RJ Article . It it isn't too late to apologize.
Recently I heard about Restorative Justice, where you are able to make amends to the victims you have harmed. I am inspired by this concept. I see a path in front of me, guiding me to turn my life around. Through this process, I’d like to communicate with the victim’s family if they’d allow me to. I want them to know that I never meant for this to happen and that I am truly sorry. It seems to me that offenders should be given more opportunity to redeem themselves, if they are willing to do so. This could be done through meetings with victims or through programming. Hopefully, this would allow offenders to repair the harm from their wrongful past and provide some comfort to the victims for their loss. (excerpt)
