"Beauty confronts us with the requirement that we place ourselves among...the redeemers, the leaders in the protection of life. Once you have seen the bush on fire, you are not going to get out of the assignment unless you close your eyes to the beauty.... [You] either have to close your eyes or go back to Egypt and set the people free." - Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, "Rising to the Challenge of Our Times"

I wanted to share the winning essay from the ABA e-journal Ross Essay contest. The author (a law professor at the U. of Missouri-Kansas City) said a hell of a lot in 600 words.

Photo is one I found of San Quentin.

Helps me understand that the final judgement is more important than any judgement we mere mortals dispense. I think his mortal repentance will count for a lot.
