When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human misery rather than avenge it? — Eleanor Roosevelt
In Today's Workshop...
We examined forgiveness in different situations: from the viewpoint of an individual in the criminal justice system, to nations seeking forgiveness for past wrongs, to forgiving ourselves. We talked about steps to take to seek forgiveness and to grant it.
Get the video, The Power of Forgiveness, from your library, Netflix, or video rental store. The movie has several stories of people in great conflict who have chosen to forgive. The website for the film has a study guide, additional resources, and a quiz to see how forgiving you are.
Efforts are being made to reform the criminal justice system. One such endeavor is the Innocence Project, which is an organization dedicated to using DNA evidence to help the wrongfully accused free themselves from prison. Two hundred and forty nine people have been cleared of false charges since its beginnings in 1992.
