  • Party like a prodigal

    There’s a group of people in North Carolina who call themselves People of the Second
     Chance (POSC).
    One of the things they do is throw parties -- for people just out of prison, for recovering drug addicts, for misfits, for the discouraged, for the uncelebrated and forgotten, for the overlooked and hurting, for those bowed down with guilt and shame.
