Forgive the way I have lived indifferent - forgive my timid circumspect involvement.

I'm personally a bit skeptical about putting too much focus on the idea of retribution, so the punishment of the ones who are guilty — not that accountability is not important — of course, it is, but here we're really talking about sort of systemic problem where simply punishing toward people is really not going to make a difference.

Our world is a world that has a growing gap between the rich and the poor. We are all caught in a culture of power, of promotion. We are caught in it. But there is danger -- you know the danger; we all know the danger. And the poor rise up in anger. Call it whatever you want to call it. But how can we work to close the gap? We say at L'Arche, "one heart at a time." It's all we can do.

If we can be courageous, one more time than we are fearful; If we can be trusting, one more time than we are anxious; If we can be cooperative, one more time than we are competitive; If we can be forgiving, one more time than we are vindictive; If we can be loving, one more time than we are hateful... We will have moved closer to the next breakthrough in our evolution.

Forgiveness made me free from hatred. I still have many scars on my body and severe pain most days but my heart is cleansed. Napalm is very powerful, but faith, forgiveness, and love are much more powerful. We would not have war at all if everyone could learn how to live with true love, hope, and forgiveness. If that little girl in the picture can do it, ask yourself: Can you?

In a way, forgiving is only for the brave. It is for those people who are willing to confront their pain, accept themselves as permanently changed, and make difficult choices. Countless individuals are satisfied to go on resenting and hating people who wrong them. They stew in their own inner poisons and even contaminate those around them. Forgivers, on the other hand, are not content to be stuck in a quagmire. They reject the possibility that the rest of their lives will be determined by the unjust and injurious acts of another person.

Forgiveness is a rebirth of hope, a reorganization of thought, and a reconstruction of dreams. Once forgiving begins, dreams can be rebuilt. When forgiving is complete, meaning has been extracted from the worst of experiences and used to create a new set of moral rules and a new interpretation of life’s events.

To forgive is to assume a larger identity than the person who was first hurt, to mature and bring to fruition an identity that can put its arm, not only around the afflicted one within but also around the memories seared within us by the original blow and through a kind of psychological virtuosity, extend our understanding to one who first delivered it.
