Summary:

Step 1

Go to the video icon above and check out a real-life version of forgiveness in what most of us would consider an impossible situation.

This lady knew that the gift of forgiving someone was to free her from a life of bitterness, but it was a gift that kept giving.

Let us know what you thought about the video.

Step 2

Consider the quotes below and how they may relate to your life up to this point.

“Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you.” - Jackson Brown, Jr.

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” -Mahatma Gandhi

“Justice denied anywhere diminishes justice everywhere.” -the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Do any of these quotes resonate with you? You know. Do you feel any of them?

Step 3

Which one spoke to you and why?

There's one more kind of injustice that happens.

Accidents.

Sometimes accidents happen. They can be painful even tragic.

Often someone wants to hold a person accountable for an accident, yet that only adds to the unfairness of the injury.

What do you tend to do when an accident happens and you're the one hurt or frightened?

Step 5

What do you do when an accident happens, and you're the one blamed?

Step 6

When both parties are at fault or neither is clearly to blame, we suggest you let it go.

Can you?

Step 7

If you wanted leniency in the situation where you were more at fault, but you demand punishment or financial payback in another situation, how is that fair?

Step 8

Think about that.
