The Power of Forgiveness


The link below shows a remarkable story of how a woman was able to forgive her son's murderer. She not only befriend him, but they now lives next to each other.  This story is just amazing. It goes to show that forgiveness is out there and that even something as cruel as murder can be forgiven.

Watch it here

If someone were to murder a family member, I can honestly say that I don't know if I'll have what it takes to befriend them. I may be able to forgive, but befriending them is another thing. Are you able to forgive and forget?

Forgiveness is so important

I think it's amazing when people are able to forgive for something of that magnitude. I'm not sure I'd want to be BFFs though.

To forgive is divine...

Something I read once has always stuck with me - forgiveness is more about ourselves than the other person. It's about our ability to come to terms with the fact that someone else was not the person we wanted them to be, or that they did something that we didn't want them to do.

Befriending and forgiveness, however, are two very different things...

Forgiveness is commendable

But I doubt I could ever be bff with someone who killed a family member. In fact, I doubt I could ever even forgive them. I'd want that 25yrs to be served, and then some. Them singing at churches, hauling recycle garbage or going to college is just all the things the person robbed the other child of doing. And he's learning to forgive himself? How exactly? You learn to forgive yourself over an accident, but how exactly do you learn to forgive yourself for delibrately ending someone elses life?
