Episode Description

It seems as if the whole world has gone mad... Bad news dominates the media, and stress and tension are on the rise. Wars abroad and economic concerns here at home lead the headlines. Heated election debates further divide the country, and everyone is taking sides-- politically, racially, and religiously. On top of all that there is a faith crisis in America, and people are becoming more and more disillusioned... Behind the scenes there is a growing and often unseen problem: overcrowded prisons, younger and younger inmates, fueled by an epidemic of addiction and drug related crime. Is there an answer? Is true prison reform and safer communities just a pipe dream in America? This week we will delve further into this very important issue with a man who is on the front lines of this battle for peace. Tune in this week as we discuss real solutions with Jay Neal, Executive Director for the Governor's Office of Transition, Support and Re-entry for the State of Georgia. The Power of Peace!
