Episode Description

There's a lot of wisdom in Will Bowen's belief that "Hurt people, hurt people." It is easy to judge others for their actions. It takes a lot more humanity to look deeply at the tortured soul who would commit crimes, like murder. Dr. James Garbarino has taken that step to actually see the human being behind the crime and to see them as hurt but not beyond redemption. He quotes one killer as saying, "I cry myself to sleep every night." Some children can survive childhood abuse, some can heal and others are so damaged that they grow up lacking empathy. These people become abusers and sometimes so many cards are stacked against them that they become killers. In the United States, we tend to punish rather than rehabilitate. Other countries incarcerate for a shorter period of time and have more success with rehabilitation. It turns out that reading and meditating actually create change in the brain, which can change the killer. Please join us Thursday to learn how to save human potential.

You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness.
