Yesterday, while hanging around in the chapel up here on the retreat, one of the deacons shared a letter he'd received from a 15 year old girl in Juvenile Hall. He ministers to the kids and this one looked to be turning a corner after a serious bout with drugs.
Some folks want to legalize drugs. They say the war is lost and we're just waiting money on it.
The letter was heartbreaking.
Poland knew the jig was up, if not on the first day, then certainly after the first week. Should they have surrendered early? Is there something more important than saving money? Is there such a thing as fighting because it's the right thing to do, regardless of the outcome?
