      I am in awe of the possibility for individuals,communities and the nation to think and act differently regarding the complexity of violent behaviors. Restorative Justice is our best hope for a brighter future ~ one that supports information sharing, encourages true understanding and ultimately, potential healing for both the victim and the offender. Thank you, Dr Armour, for your inspirational work in and out of the classroom.

      Restorative Justice is a trend that can change the face of the criminal/victim/community relationships for the better. If empathy develops and meaningful accountability follows, all persons benefit, now and into the future.
