One To Chew On...

"Forgiveness is a gift one gives to change the heart of the offender." Joy, survivor of the Rwandan genocide.

There is theological gold and philosophical dynamite in this phrase spoken, not by a rarefied academic or lionized prelate but, by a simple young girl who lived through the crucible of terror and discovered the power of forgiveness.
