Forgiveness: great to talk about, harder to do. I have a tendency to hold onto my hurts. It's not good or healthy, Gods working with me on letting go, but I'm inspired by the courage of this family. There daughters life was ended by a man who went on to take 2 more lives. He was arrested and sentenced to death. Amazingly the young womans family forgave the man who took her life. Not only did they forgive him but they bought airline tickets for his daughter and granddaughter to say goodbye to the father/grandfather they never knew. You can read the whole story here

I've heard it said before that "forgiveness is unlocking the door to set someone free... and realizing you were the prisoner"
