Restorative justice requires that society look with empathy and compassion on the victim as well as the perpetrator, and works to bring healing to them both. It acts to bring as much hard restitution to the injured as possible, rather than empty revenge .
At the end of the day – revenge really doesn’t heal trauma – it’s a breeding ground for it.
Restitution , Amends, and restoration , can restart a life.
