This past week Chuck Colson passed from this life to reach the destination of his faith, to be embraced by Jesus who redeemed him from pride and prejudice and the pit of prison. He will be greatly missed.
The overuse of prisons is not unique to the developing world. Almost half of the world's prisoners are held in the U.S., China, and Russia. America has the highest number of prisoners and the highest rate of imprisonment of any country.
