Something good:

More than 1,000 children will be spending a fun-filled, God-centered day with their imprisoned fathers in one of the nation’s most notorious jails on Saturday.
The grounds of Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola has been transformed into a carnival where some 1,100 kids will enjoy crafts, games and a meal with their fathers. The event is the largest of its kind in the United States.

One in every 40 American children has a mother or father in jail. It is a byproduct of the nearly 2 million Americans in jail or prison. I can’t imagine the joy, the smiles, the chance for healing that something like this event offers children and prisoners alike. It is good to think on things like these.
