Children involved in juvenile court face collateral consequences from their delinquency adjudications which can prevent barriers to their future success and can cause harm to their well-being. Some of these stem from system exposure and others extend beyond the time spent under court supervision but are related to their prior court involvement and adjudication. For example, after successfully completing their dispositions, many youth face significant hardships enrolling back in school, finding employment, or accessing ongoing treatment or health care. This episode of Spotlight on Youth focuses on the intersection of collateral consequences for youth who are court involved. Guests join this episode to discuss what is being done on both policy and practice levels to reduce and eliminate the problem. Guests
Elissa Johnson, Staff Attorney, Southern Poverty Law Center
Dr. Ashley Nellis, Senior Research Analyst, The Sentencing Project
Lisa H. Thurau, Founder and Executive Director, Strategies for Youth

We focus on drone technology, looking at the relationship between language and law. A range of speakers explain how the framing of the War On Terror has served the US military's purposes, and note that the US keeps details of its pretexts for state sponsored assassinations by drone as vague as possible. Plausible deniability is only needed if people are in a position where their actions are subject to informed questions. The core of this week's show is made up with a set of speeches from a 2015 meeting about the use of drone warfare, introduced by Bruce Gagnon and augmented by SAS whistleblower, Ben Griffin and a few classic words of Chris Hedges on how war affects its participants.
Credits: Thanks to Wilton Vought of Other Voices, Other Choices for uploading the audio from the Interfaith Conference On Drone Warfare to http://www.radio4all.net
Notes: We begin with a call by Bruce Gagnon in October 2014 to repurpose the US arms production capacity. After a musical break, we hear the start of Chris Hedges classic speech (from episode 227), followed by SAS whistleblower, Ben Griffin, commenting on the infamous Collateral Murder video leaked by Chelsea Manning.

1 Cor 6:18-20 says Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. We were bought with a price, and a costly one it was for all the sin of mankind. But its something about sexual sin that has a dangerous and disasterous effect to it. Simply put, its short term pleasure with long term consequences . This perhaps gives real meaning to the phrase "you reap what you sow".....this includes shame, guilt, pain and heart ache as well as a life time of regret. Truly a price we can't pay. The good news however is that Christ understands our struggle with the desires of the flesh and He loves us so much He seeks to save us from the bondage of sin. We must ask ourselves these and many other questions regarding sexual sin. Am I willing to lose my marriage with sexual sin? Am I ready to lose my family, friends to my own lustful cravings? How much am I willing to pay? And the master manipulator, Satan will never tell you the cost of this sin up front but he will be expecting you to pay in the end. Thanks be to God that we already have a way of escape through the cross, becuase Jesus already paid it all.
The old saying that "an apology goes a long way" means it's effective and yields a positive result. When a company apologizes for selling a defective product or failing to live up to their promise, it usually wins back customer trust. The apology may require rectifying the problem by fixing the defective product or by other kinds of restitution. When our mate has spoken hurtful words or otherwise dogged us, a sincere apology usually wins our respect and forgiveness.
Apologizing can be a hard thing to do. Our human nature fights against admitting we've done wrong. Emotions and pride can get in the way. Sometimes we fear that apologizing shows weakness or will bring a consequences.
An apology should admit a mistake and express regret. It's an important remedy for healing a damaged relationship. It tells the offended party that the relationship is important. An apology helps resolve disputes and conflicts.
An apology has a number of positive effects. It doesn't erase past actions or the harm done, but it can erase the negative effects of those actions. A sincere apology brings relief by releasing the emotions, anger, resentment and bitterness. The apology soothes the wound and begins to heal the hurt. It allows the mending of the relationship to begin.
By apologizing, we humble ourselves and are able to unload the guilt for our wrong action and the hurt we have caused another person. It restores self-respect because we take responsibility for our actions. We regain the love, respect and intimacy we once had with our mate.
God love is to every person since all are HIS creation. However, HE finds it necessary to distinguish who is righteous and who is wicked by their way of life. HE wants all to see the difference as HE see it and understand as HE does. All persons have the opportunity to choose their way of walking and its consequences. Let's be careful in our choice every moment. Join us for live prayer at 6:00 AM Mon.-Fri. Dial 714.459.3963.

Children's Corner: Parenting With a Story: Real-Life Lessons in Character for Parents and Children to Share with Paul Smith
Tell a young person what to do - play fair, be yourself, stick to the task at hand - and most will tune you out. But show them how choices and consequences play out in the real world, with real people, and the impact will be far more profound. Parenting with a Story gathers 101 narratives from people around the world and from all walks of life, reflecting unexpected moments of clarity about who they are and how they should treat others.
The lessons illuminate the power of character - integrity, curiosity, creativity, grit, kindness, patience, gratitude, and more - to prepare us for anything. Sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes funny, always compelling, these stories impart wisdom and help steer choices about: Resisting peer pressure; Remaining open-minded; Being humble; Making courageous decisions; Standing by their word; Bouncing back from failure; Showing compassion; and, Picking friends wisely. Stories help shape who we are and who we aspire to become. Share these, discuss them, and watch your child grow into the adult you'll be proud of.
