Children Are Abandoned - "A Terrible Tragedy"

I suggested the following writing by Marc Mauer for our Reading and Reflection for several reasons. Because of Quakers’ long history in prison reform, beginning with Elizabeth Fry in England in the early 1800s, and the continued Quaker concern and care for incarcerated persons, along with my own experience as a prison visitor at the Milan Federal prison, this short article touches my heart. Perhaps it can help all of us to reflect deeply on how Quakers might find ways that our testimonies of peace and nonviolence could impact the criminal justice system in our country. Marc Mauer directed the Criminal Justice Program for the AFSC Office in Ann Arbor from the mid-70s to the mid-80s. ~ Ruth Carey
