Unforgiveness is Like Cancer

A touching story about the power of forgiveness at Love thy neighbor @ GetReligion. It tells of a woman named Mary who learned to forgive the man who shot her son.  The best and most significant quote to me is the following statement:
“Unforgiveness is like cancer,” Mary says. “It will eat you from the inside out. It’s not about that other person, me forgiving him does not diminish what he’s done. Yes, he murdered my son - but the forgiveness is for me. It’s for me.”
