"Forgiveness heals. Hate cripples."

The closer we get to this year's anniversary of 9/11, hate threatens to destroy the freedoms and tolerances this nation was built on. Then I read a story about two women made widows on that day who, instead of hating the nation that bred the fanatics who murdered their husbands, have worked to help widows in that same nation.

I believe in forgiveness. I refuse to lend power to hatred.

Amen, sister friend.

I don't understand how anyone who has simply read, let alone preached about, the Sermon on the Mount could ever countenance some of the activities I see on the news. It makes me sad.

WOW! So wonderful to see you write that.

Too bad more people don't understand life that way.

Blessings on the journey!
