The “F” Word: 
Explorations of Forgiveness
"Some people criticize forgiveness. They say that it is weak, or that it lets someone 'off the hook'. What I know is that choosing forgiveness and living it day after day has been one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. But, it has had the greatest reward: it has let me off the hook; it released me from a lifetime bond to the violence I hate so much and the betrayal that was so destructive. It opened the door to a positive future."
