LETTER: Restorative justice as a means to effect constructive change

in

Dear Editor,

November 15 to 22 is Restorative Justice Week.

Restorative Justice is justice that attempts to repair the damage done when a crime is committed.

The berries are purply blue and quite small-about the size of peppercorns.
